Birthday Shenanigans

Jackson's birthday extended one week after his actual birthday this year.

Here he is at his birthday celebration at his school. Renzi and I came to circle time and watched Jackson lead his class in Calendar work, passing out of his special snacks that we brought and listened to the hilarious stories that come out of 4 and 5 year old mouths. Seriously, I was dieing laughing the entire time while also bursting with pride watching Jackson lead the class. So proud of my 5 year old!

When Renzi was scheduled to have back surgery near Jackson's birthday, we decided to have a VERY small party for Jackson the week after his actual birthday. Even though Renzi ended up just having a procedure done on his back and then having foot surgery so he was actually quite helpful, we still decided to keep it small. We invited his soccer team and two of Jackson's girlfriends to our house for pizza and then Renzi and "Uncle Tim" took the kids to the movies while I stayed home with Walker.

Of course, the night started with a game of bball on our front driveway.

Here's the crew with CJ Heskett right before pizza.

Here's my sweet birthday boy about to blow out his candles!

And this picture pretty much is the best picture in all of the land. Look at these yahoos!

All in all, the kids had a great time! Renzi said that with 6 five year olds NO ONE had to use the bathroom throughout the entire movie. Must be some kind of record or something! And the highlight was when the boys (who rode with Renzi) pulled up to the movie theatre next to Tim's car, where the girls were and the boys serenaded the girls with a little Justin Bieber. Folks, it doesn't get much better than that!!!

And because I haven't posted an outfit picture from Jackson in a while, here you go. Still going strong with his different sense of style.
