Happy Birthday, J! Five-years! :)

 Today is my little J's 5th birthday!  I am so happy to have him in my life.  It is shocking that he is really this old, but he really acts like a 5-year-old.  He woke up this morning at about 5:30 ready to begin his birthday.

He is our only child to have a birthday on a school day and this means some early present opening so we can all be together.  Of course, he chose this big present to open.  He loved them all.  It was fun to see him open them.
 Then, I took him to ride the minature train.  He loves it and it really is fun.  We took a friend with us, too.

 This engineer was super sweet.  When he found out it was J's birthday, he went and gave him some Cracker Jacks and then had the whole train sing to him.  What a great time!  And, it was near 100 degrees today and we went early enough that it was a pleasant ride.  :)
 On the way home, we stopped at a donut shop.  J wanted to go there so much!
 Later that afternoon, J wanted to help me make his cake.  So, he did and he loved it!
 (Including licking the beaters!)
 Here he is working with creating Yoshi (one of his presents).
 He also requested Yoshi for his cake.  Here is what I did:
 For some reason, I have no talent as an artist, but I can usually use a can of frosting and some food coloring and create a decent cake.  I guess this is my one artistic talent.  :)

Happy, Happy birthday, J dear!  :)  I love you!!!!
