Final installment of Jacob's b-day 2010

As the celebration of Jacob's b-day continues..... (yes, Momma is behind blogging once again!)
Jacob got to celebrate with his preschool class & cupcakes!

The birthday boy gets to be "top dog" all week. While I was there for lunch & cupcakes, I had a chance to see Jacob lead his friends in the pledge, weather, calendar & circle time. It was precious!

We also had our family come over to celebrate Jacob's b-day. It was just going to be too crowded & chaotic with all of his little friends!
We took this picture since we had done the exact same shot a couple of years ago (didn't find the picture to have as a comparison but Logan wasn't on the scene yet)
All of the cousins are growing too fast!

Isn't that the cutest cake?!
Our little batman loved it too!

Jacob, you are growing up too fast! We love watching you grow & learn new things every day. We love your sensitive heart & the way you are already a very compassionate person. You have quite the imagination & are dreaming up new things all the time. God is molding you into a very special young man. As I tell you everyday, God has a special plan for your life! We can't wait to see all that He has in store for you. We are thankful to be your Momma & Daddy!
Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Jacob!

Jacob turned 5 on March 1st! It seems impossible that he should be 5 already! In many ways, it seems like we were just walking down St Anthony in the early phases of labor. In many other ways, it seems like so much has happened in 5 years.
We celebrated with both a friend party & family party. Between his preschool and church friends, there were a lot of kids so we went with Jacob's request & had a party in the church gym. It was a pretty day (a little cool with the wind, March 1st will always be a wild card weather wise!) & we got to play on the new church playground.

The kids enjoyed decorating their own cupcakes

Lots of fun characters & super heroes

Logan loved playing with the big kids. He took a plunge off the playground equipment but thankfully Daddy caught him by his cape:)

Next I will update with the rest of the birthday festivities. Inman teases that our family motto includes celebrating birthdays for at least a week!
