6 years old!

My big boy is six!

On September 26, Reese turned six years old. We had a weekend full of birthday including shark cupcakes with his class, Johns Incredible Pizza, and Reese's favorite-Seafood Linguine- for dinner! It was fun for all of us! Reese has grown to be such a sweet little guy. He is always very thoughtful, especially of me. He loves to give away hugs and kisses and loves to learn! I am so proud of him!
Here's a shot of his birthday loot. We got him a fun halloween shirt at Target with a skull on the front. When I picked him up from school on Monday I asked him how his day went.

Mom: How was your day?

Reese: Good, except the kids thought I was a bully.

Mom: Why?

Reese: Because I have a (th)skull on my shirt! HELLO!

Mom: Shall we not have you wear it anymore?

Reese: No, I will still wear it, I'll just tell the kids that I am a nice boy.

...And he is! Happy Birthday Reese, We love you!!!

In addition to being another year older, Reese has grown taller and has eight permanent teeth. But that is not all. Reese is also growing into quite the creative little boy. He loves scissors and tape, and can work miracles with them. He is also getting to be quite a good little artist. This is his latest masterpiece. It is called "Me, Tooting Underwater." What a funny little boy.

We enjoyed visiting with Ben the other night. I felt bad I didn't have anything wonderful to feed him for dinner.(crockpot Swiss steak because I had to work that day) But I was very glad he took the time to come and visit. I loved hearing about how your family is doing. Have fun in Utah on the 16th!!!!

I am so excited for you to come visit me in 15 more days! :) Reese is very sweet. Alayna still thinks he can be more than just her cousin... I wish we were closer and I could watch your kids grow up and occassionally try to corrupt them (hehe) but until we all live on the same street, I will take your visits and posts!

Okay, "me tooting underwater" is hilarious and exactly like what goes on at our house. Last night Ryan and I were at the grocery store and he was teasing me and said, "just for that" and turned and let the loudest-ever-fart go. He totally forgot we were in public. I was embarassed to say the least but it's funny today.

I love that kid! I miss teaching him in Primary. There were several times he would say the funniest things in class (but perhaps not the most appropriate for being at church), and I would fight to keep a straight face as I reminded him to say good things at church. :)

(By the way, that was not meant to make you worry about what he does at church, because he is always such a good kid. Just letting you know that we all enjoy his humor.) :)

Sounds like the birthday boy had a wonderful day! I love the picture. You must frame it and gush over it when he bring a girl home on a date. LOL.

Meghan said...

Aren't you the crazy sister who went bungee jumping?? That is by far much scarier then jumping off a tall pole!

Are you coming up for Phantom?? Say YES!

Your little conversation with Reese about his shirt with a skull on it is so precious! He sounds like such a sweet boy. Way to raise him right.

I LOVE the tooting underwater picture. I was at work when I opened it the first time and had to show all my buddies. It's so funny! Happy Late Birthday to Reese! He made off with quite a lot of birthday loot!
