|Notice Henry eyeing the gift he got Nick. He's plotting to run away with it.|
Henry really struggled with the whole "these presents are not for me" idea. I took him with me to the store to help pick out Nick's gifts, and I had Henry choose one of the gifts to be "from" him. He didn't quite get the concept.
Nick was happily ripping into his gifts. Henry. . . well, his daddy had to hold him back.
|Yes, Henry is trying to snatch back the present he got for Nick.|
Thank goodness Nick loves to read! I snagged him some great nonfiction titles from my school's book fair a few weeks back.
Since Nick has been really into Legos lately, we got him a set of bricks. Henry picked out a Lego Star Wars ship for Nick, but he just wouldn't let it go.
We took Nick out for a special meal at Moe Joe's in Plainfield. Surprisingly enough, we've never eaten there before. The Cajun-style food was really yummy, and the decor was cool. Would you believe Nick called this the "lowercase t wall?" My kid cracks me up sometimes.
I think this is the only moment during our entire meal that Henry sat still.
Instead of a birthday cake, Nick had birthday beignets! It was amazingly delicious. I wish we'd ordered more.
Happy Birthday to my big six-year-old!
