Five has been a BIG birthday in our house. I feel like five is a graduation of the toddler/preschool years and a beginning of a new life as a "kid". Gavin will start school when he is 5. He now has a responsibility chart that he is very excited about. AND he is getting allowance (we like to call it commission) for doing all his responsibilities.
The night before his birthday we spent the evening blowing up balloons so that we could fill his room with them.
Thanks goodness for the pump, although Billy did blow up several without it.
Here is what 72 balloons look like.
Gavin was very happy and surprised.
Catching on to the theme yet?
Our breakfast birthday party.
But not without a fit! Just keeping it real! :)
Then the little boys had to have a birthday candle on their donuts. And we sang happy birthday, again.
