We had a wonderful day celebrating little Richie. He opened gifts, had a nice day at church, ate his special birthday dinner of spaghetti and Sprite, and had cake and ice cream.
After taking this picture I said, "Your eyes were closed." And he said, "I know, it's because I'm so happy!"
He was so happy with everything he got. Thanks Grandma Gail for the colossal art set and the easel. The art set is truly colossal and he has already had hours of enjoyment from it. As you can see, Sophia is enjoying Richie's birthday presents, too. Richie also got a camouflage shirt and pants and was super excited about that, because he believes camouflage makes you invisible. He also got a Disney Cars racing toy, which he has been asking for for over a month, and he reminded me that he wanted it almost every day, including the night before his birthday. Luckily he wasn't disappointed.
He requested a blue cake (inside) with a blue T-Rex on it. As he watched me decorate it on Saturday night, he started requesting a couple more dinos, but I wasn't up to that task, and at one point he said, "Awe, I wish I could decorate my own cake." I can only imagine the visions he had in his head, my little artist.
As his birthday ended I gave him one last, big birthday hug and said, "I am SO glad you came to join our family six years ago." He looked at me with his sweet little smile and said, "And I'm so glad . . . I got that present!" pointing at the Cars toy. I sure love this kid!
