my newly six year old.

Charlie turned 6 on Sunday
His birthday celebration ended last night
Somehow-- some of it planned and some of it spontaneous--
we've been having a birthday week for him
instead of a birthday day
It started with everyone saying why
they love Charlie during dinner one night
Then, rather than wrapping his gifts,
we hid them around the house
and let him hunt for them,
one a day over the last 4 or 5 days
Included in this event were the "Frankenstein" cupcakes
we brought for all our church family on Sunday
A birthday lunch at Wendy's with kids meals for all
And finally last night, his birthday cake and ice cream
Oh-- and did I mention that we'll be going to an
Aquarium very soon as a special birthday day
which Charlie chose for all the family
Happy Birthday to a really great 6 year old!
