Big 5

Say it with me. 

Last week we celebrated Dizzy's 5th Birthday. 
Now we have a one year old, a three year old, and a five year old. 

We partied at Bricks4Kids - a lego building place near us. 

Epic success.

While the kids built their motorized windmills, Amos distributed plates. He can't be distracted by activities when cake is on the line. 

After an intense sit-in-a-circle-and-listen instruction period, the kids were paired up to construct motorized windmills. One would be the finder and one would be the builder and they would trade off each step.

Truth be told, I thought it was a little above the preschool level. I was wrong. These guys listened and did exactly as they were instructed and you could practically feel the breeze coming off those tiny windmills!

Eli and Leigh showed those little bricks who was boss.


And, fear not Amos...
 Of course. There was cake.
Year 5 for that little birthday boy and his crown. Mama couldn't be prouder.

One, three, five.
Nice ring to it. 


  1. Happy birthday, Eli! Jessa, your kiddos have birthdays mere moments apart, don't they?

  2. I'd like to be friends with the kid in the KC Chiefs shirt- ok?
