Max is 5 today!!!!!

Today is Max's 5th birthday - here is a photo I snapped this morning at breakfast:

I'm tellin' ya people, this kid has spunk! I love this little man so very much and can't believe it's been 5 years since I was in the hospital having him. He really makes my life worth living...such a sweet and gentle heart, with a HUGE imagination and so very playful! He loves to tease others (in a funny way) and listens to everything around him (and later repeats everything he hears). He's funny and sassy, with a smile that melts me everytime. Happy Birthday, sweet boy!

This past weekend we had a Lego themed birthday party for Max - which was a huge success! There were so many people packed in my house, lots of yummy food, and happiness all around:) We collected books that Max is going to donate to a local hospital for the children's floor (we will be doing that next Monday). Max also received some gifts and I think everyone had a great time! Here are some pictures from that night:

We feel so very blessed to be surrounded by family and friends who love Max so deeply! I was telling him how blessed he is because all of the people at his party love him so much and he said "I know, Mom, and we even got Cody to come:)" I thought this was so adorable - because Cody is my cousin and a very busy guy with working all the time and having his own band that travels. Max thought it was awesome that Cody even came!

As I was cleaning up on Sunday night, Max took all his money out of the cards and all his presents out of the bags - so I have no idea who got him what. If you were at the party - you probably won't be receiving a thank you card for the gift you brought because I'm totoally lost - but know that we truly appreciate each and every one of you and love you all so much!

Today Max is at preschool at the Odon Christian Church. This morning I told him we could go to the store and pick out a treat to take to school with him. His choices? Capri-Suns and Star Wars fruit snacks. I'm sure all the kids will enjoy that:) Happy 5th Birthday, Maxwell Carter Toy!
