Brodie's 6th Birthday
We celebrated Brodie's 6th birthday this past weekend. I find it hard to believe he is 6 years old.
Friday was his actual birthday and we all woke up early so he could open his presents and have cinnamon rolls before everyone had to go to school. Daddy took the day off so that was nice having him there for breakfast. The theme this year was Star Wars. He is big into Star Wars and football.We got him 3 sets of Legos for his birthday. The first one he opened and was like "really mom?". Apparently he already had that set. The second set he opened he just kinda looked at it. Will said "didn't you want that one?" and Brodie responded "well, not really." I think he was trying not to hurt our feelings and show that he wasn't disappointed although it wasn't working. You could tell that he was a little bummed.
Finally the third Lego set was a hit and he was way excited. After breakfast Daddy helped him get his Lego set started and finally it was time to go to school.
Sunday we celebrated his birthday at Grandma Mary's and Grandpa Joel's. Grandma and Grandpa Campbell and Grandpa Dave and Grandma Anita all drove up to join the party. The house was full of grandparents.
I decorated Brodie's cake as Janga Fett from Star Wars. This was his request and I wasn't sure I could pull it off. It by all means wasn't perfect but he was happy with it and that's all that matters.
