happy birthday, 6 year old!

Liam turned 6 yesterday. It's pretty crazy that having a 6 year old also means that we've been parents for 6 years! It's amazing to watch our children grow. They come into this world not knowing anything, and within 6 years, they have already learned to do so many things. We've experienced so many "firsts" with Liam. This year, we are tackling 1st grade (if I can ever decide which curriculum to use.) It's overwhelming looking through all the curriculum choices that have been recommended to us. 
On Sunday night, we had our neighbor friends over for a simple "Frozen" party. Liam is totally passionate about party decorations, so we hung some snowflakes and made a "pin the nose on Olaf" game for the kids.

Ever since the boys watched "Lord of the Rings" with Don, Liam has been obsessed with wanting a bow and arrow so he could be "just like Legolas." I actually found one at Dollar Tree! He is so happy with it, I'm thinking he'll need a better quality wooden bow next.

Liam's big request for his birthday meal was a Happy Meal from McDonald's. So easy to please!

we had Bible Study last night so I made a cookie cake for the birthday boy

Liam is so special to us. I love him more and more every day and I look forward to seeing how God will use him in the years to come.
