Last week, Jack turned six. He is thrilled to have finally reached this age and he’s already looking forward to seven next year. My baby is growing up so so fast.
This year was the first in a while that we could really give him a great birthday. When he turned 3, we were moving. When he turned 4, money was tight. When he turned 5, we were moving again. This year we are settled in our house, in our beautiful neighborhood here in the mountains and we wanted him to have a wonderful day with those he loves!
Jack’s God-mother and Auntie came from SC to see him. That in itself was extra special. She drove over the twisty-winding mountain just to make Jack’s weekend the best and we love her so much for that! He has the best Auntie ever!
T-Rex, Jackson’s absolute favorite dinosaur, sent him a pretty awesome birthday card. It was so unique, designed by T-Rex himself, just for Jack. Jackson LOVED it! We cannot thank T-Rex enough for that special present just for Jackson. It was such a special memory that he will never forget. Thanks for making his day the BEST!
Mrs. P, our neighbor also gave Jack a lovely card and he took her a piece of cake as a thank you for recognizing him on his special day!
Jackson wanted NY style pizza for his birthday. Daddy has taught him it’s the BEST so we grabbed him his favorite pie from our local pizzeria. He could eat a whole pizza from this place by himself. I can’t wait until we can someday take him to NY to eat it there but for now our buddy from Brooklyn always hooks Jack up with the best pizza’s ever!
Jack asked us for a TON of things, like most kids do, but Don and I found him things we really felt he would play with and enjoy the most. He got several dinosaurs, some Jurassic Park cars for playing with his Dinosaurs, a T-Rex that moves on it’s own, some dino playdough playsets, a Dino stick horse (perfect for Jack!), Sissy traced his hand as her gift, a Noah’s Ark balancing set, and Skylanders to share with his siblings because he’s really into that game right now and it was on a pretty amazing clearance! He loves it ALL and we love that he’s happy!
His party theme was Dinosaurs which he picked out a few months ago. They are life right now. He absorbs info about every dino he discovers and there is a new one almost daily.
His cake turned out beautifully. He requested a homemade chocolate cake with Dino’s on top made by Mommy, Daddy and Grandma and so we worked together to make his dream come true. He loved it, too!
It was just the best birthday weekend he’s had in quite a while and I’m so totally thankful! Jack is so special and he deserves the best every day.
Happy Sixth Birthday to our sweet, Jackson!
