EXTRA! EXTRA!

Read all about it...

It's CONNOR'S birthday!

Connor is such a great kid. Seriously. He's the most easy-going person I have ever met. He never gives us any trouble. {Well almost never!} The first night I brought him home from the hospital I woke up the next morning in a complete panic because he didn't wake up in the night {refer to Taylor's birthday post to see why the panic}. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of times he woke me up in his WHOLE life! And that was only because he was sick or teething. {Again, if you don't see why this is a big deal, refer to Taylor's post} Connor since the age of two would love to sit and do puzzles that were meant for kids twice his age. That has now moved into his skills of putting LEGO kits together lightning fast! He idolizes his sister and is constantly wanting to be playing or be right next to her. He is so caring and loves to laugh. His eyes are so small and squinty I can berly get them open wide enough in any picture I take, but they are my favorite because for some reason when I look into his little eyes they have a soul behind them that is one I feel like I've known forever. I love you little buddy, eh-um, 6-year-old big guy!

today opening presents...

And the CHOCOLATE cake for my CHOCOLATE boy...

I let him draw his own decorations...we printed Pokemon characters and then traced them using melting chocolates. I'll definitely do this again, it was the coolest thing! This was our inspiration.

Pikachu...turned out pretty good! He absolutely loved it.

can't have enough LEGOs!

...and what would we do without this guy???? Our comic relief!
