Brock turns 6!

My little boy turns 6 today! I tried really hard to make it a very special day. We started out with some Dinosaur shaped pancakes and off to school. While he was at school I frantically tried to finish all the prep work for his Dinosaur themed birthday party! I had to get the dino shaped pizza crusts ready, get balloons, hide the goody bag items all around the living room... So I picked him up after school and quickly got the pizzas finished and started baking them so the quests wouldn't be waiting for an hour. It worked out perfect. The kids decorated the dino shaped goody bags while I finished taking out the last pizza's and then we had all dinosaur themed games. We dug for dino fossils (I put small dinosaurs in cups of plaster of Paris) Let me recommend this activity be an out door one if you ever try it! It took quite a while for me to clean this one up, but the kids LOVED IT! Then we hatched dino eggs (balloons with small dino inside), dug for dino's in the sand, had a duck duck goose changed to dino names, and then of course there was the dinosaur shaped cookies, and ice cream (cake is for tonight with daddy, grandma and grandpa). Then there were some presents and then find all the hidden goody bag treats. The kids had a lot of fun and I was only exhausted after the whole experience. But it is well worth it to have Brock be so happy and to hear one of Brock's friends say "this is the best party I have ever been to!" Granted he is only 6 but it sure makes a mom feel good and lets me know I did a good job. Tonight it is his favorite dinner of cheese stuffed shells, dinosaur shaped cake and more presents! I might post more on this part tomorrow so I can post his reaction to his gifts that I know he will love!!!!! But I wanted to post his little video I started working on yesterday since I had about 30 minutes before I had to crack down on making dinner (don't worry I have the noodles already boiling!) So I hope you like watching the little show of my little boy growing from birth to 6!

Great video! One of these days you'll have to show me how to do that. I'm sure glad we have a Brock, cause he's pretty special. He's my little twin!

I am glad we have Brock too! He brings so much joy to our home. He is so creative, kind, and sweet! I just love to watch how his mind works and how he creates things, I love to just sit and talk to him and listen to all the things he is thinking about, doing.... I just love that kid!
