So, luckily my mother-in-law was getting rid of her grandmother's china. And, Mom let me have some of her grandmother's. Done.
Come to find out, what he really wanted to do was eat a turkey (in this case chicken) leg. I think it was the entire reason he asked for a Thanksgiving feast.
Then we quickly had cake and moved on to better things...
It was the sweetest thing this year...he just kept repeating, "Thank you to everyone for my beautiful birthday!!"
He went to bed last night saying he couldn't wait to have a Thanksgiving birthday next year, and every year after that!
We saved one last present for his actual birthday this morning - a retractable fishing pole and tackle box!
Fishermen are tough.
And, we went to Gracie's for a smoothie and breakfast!
Who knows what the rest of the day holds...most of the kiddos have colds. But, we're so thankful for this little 5-year-old.
loves to fish,
prefers to wear only polo shirts and jeans,
is so very kind (even though he does his fair share of teasing and fighting, he always is willing to give in, even letting his brothers open his birthday presents),
loves to be outside,
enjoys riding his horse,
is a huge fan of Allsups' burritos (me too),
wants to do everything on his own (including no help when hurting),
prefers not to be cuddled much,
loves to draw and write,
is a bit quieter than the rest,
and is one tough little guy.
We are so very blessed to have had another wonderful year with our sweet Peter!
