BirthDAY Magic!!!

In case you don't know or haven't figured this out, I am ALL ABOUT birthdays ~ in fact, birthday WEEKS! We had Walker's party last Saturday, but his actual birthday was Wednesday which also happened to be his second day of kindergarten!

Hadlee was so excited to give Bubba his card and couldn't wait for him to get in the car after school...


Birthday Boy came bebopping out with his teacher and in his birthday hat! He took cupcakes to celebrate with his class. He jumped in the car & immediately wanted to show me the pictures he had colored at school (it was red day). I was telling him how good they were when he said, "I know. I am going to skip a grade!" I was so caught off guard and laughed out loud! Nothing like confidence during your first week of kindergarten?!?

Then Daddy showed up with a VERY special gift from Golf Father. This is a good friend of Troy's from work (and a great family friend). His name is Larry (actually we call him Big Guy) and he loves to play golf. When Walker was born we chose Kelli as God Mother & Big Guy as GOLF Father. He has been wonderful to Walker especially on Walker's sixth birthday...

He got Walker a REAL golf set!!!
Walker was so proud...

...and so was his Daddy!
What a COOL gift!!!
Golf Father, what time on Saturday morning?!?

Golf Father even treated Haddie Girl to a Toys R Us gift card...
Thanks, Golf Father! We love you!!!

The Big Birthday Boy...

More presents including a model airplane from Daddy, a slinky, new cars from Haddie, trains, and even locks like Luke has!!! Haddie had treats, too!

We love LOVE love our six year old boy!!!


Off to Chuck E. Cheese (Walker's choice) for a birthday dinner...
Walker is a CHAMP at Skeet Ball! Where do I sign him up for the skeet ball team?!?
Walker wanted to take these two pictures for his new teacher, Mrs. Hentshel. Walker says that she loves Clifford (the big red dog has always been a favorite around our house, too!)...

Nothing like a little sibling rivalry...

Grand Prize Winner at SKEET BALL! No joke!!!
Haddie Girl makes a pretty cute present in my eyes...
...and so does Walker!
Happy Birthday, Sweet Boy.
Mommy loves you the most times infinity!!!

(If you look very closely at my picture, you'll see the beautiful clip on earrings that Walker won for me at Chuck E. Cheese! I will treasure them forever! That's my boy!).

I remembered you talking about having 'birthday weeks' when Haddlee turned 2! You are one rockin' mama. What a special boy Walker is with a heart of gold.

Loved your post above too with your parents. Very cool!
