We have had a busy, but enjoyable Labor Day weekend. Kevin came up to spend the long weekend with us. Cody turned 6 years old on Friday! It is hard to believe that he is already 6. I know, I know, before we know it he will be in highschool. I just want to enjoy the moments we have right now though. They are so precious! Here is a crazy picture of the boys with their weird eyeballs and mustaches that they got at Gattiland Pizza.
Daddy made Cody a special breakfast for his birthday (Buttons and Bowknots-homemade doughnuts). Cody was right there to help, of course. He still loves to help us cook.
On Saturday, we had a birthday party for Cody. We invited the parents for a Labor Day cookout during the party. The kiddos were quite wild. Kevin described it as the opening scene of Home Alone. After they ran in and out of the house for an hour, they all ended up down in the basement. Can I say we LOVE our basement and are so glad it has a door =)
Cody licking the icing off Sponge Bob and Mase patiently waiting for his piece of cake. He devoured his piece faster than any of the other kids.
Here I am practicing making balloon animals. I managed to make a balloon dog. The others ended up popping and scaring Caleb. Cody thought it was great fun though and kept getting the long skinny balloons out all night to blow up and let them fly around the room.
Cody airing up one of the balloons.
I love this picture of Cody and Kiersa having a great time.
Crazy bunch of monkeys.
Cody and our neighbor, Peyton. Cody plays at their house so much that Ray calls him one of the family.
Christy surprised Cody by decorating the window in the door with Window Markers.
Sareena, Cody, Kiersa, and Peyton. These markers are so cool and when they are done, just give them some windex or a water bottle and let them clean the windows.
