Happy sixth birthday to my sweet boy!
With my mom in Cambodia this Christmas and my brother in town for New York, I gathered my side of the family together for an additional celebration of giving thanks. I so thank God the day He created Micah.
Micah: Mommy, what is an Octopus under water?
Soryda: Um, no clue. What?
Micah: An underwater arachnid.
Soryda: .....[that's a big word...]
Micah: What sea creature does not float?
Soryda: Um, still no clue. What?
Micah: Duh mommy. A great white shark!
|Tristan's Shark Attack face. So scary!|
Beware of the Shark! To help decorate, I enlisted the help of Kelan our neighbor!
We decorated the dining room with seaweed streamers and leftover paperplate fish.
And we had octopops, shark blood, shark teeth, fishcakes, "orange" roughy, fish & chips and fish bait! So fun and super easy! Super thank you goes to Melanie for helping out before the party! To Julie for paint, Kelan, and the printables, and to Renu for the Fish Bingo!
All the neighborhood kids came to celebrate!
Micah's birthday was on a Monday afterschool with neighborhood friends and 2 elite kindergarten friends, so in case anyone is slightly offended they didn't get an invite----it was just the afterschool crowd! :-)
Micah, your life could not bring us any greater joy. We are so privileged to call you son and we will do our best to raise you to be the man God created you to be. We love you!
