Happy Birthday, Mr. Funny!

My oldest boy turned five yesterday. It was a good day. Simple yet special. And full of love.
We started the day off with a special breakfast. Blue pancakes with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry. Then the kids got the day off of school (mainly because Mom needed to finish making the cake) and played all morning.

Uncle Ju was off work this week so he got to spend the day with us!What a special treat!

He and Ang took Mr. Funny to Wal-Mart to pick out a toy for his birthday. But first, Mom took him to McDonald's for lunch to get a happy meal!

After our fun afternoon, we met Dad at Chuck-E-Cheese fordinner. Dad was able to get off from over time to spend the evening with the birthday boy.

The pizza was very yummy!

Since Ang wasn't there to eat our crust (we missed you, Ang!), we gave it to Little Miss Sunshine. She loved it!

They even had a Star Wars game there. Cool!
Mr. Funny was very good at Skee Ball.
He got lots of tickets and even won a toy.
The kids had a great time playing. Even Sunshine joined in the fun!

Then we went home for cake and presents. Funny got a lot of nice things! A St. John Vianney statue from Dad and Mom (patron of parish priests), a handmade tool belt and a toolbox full of tools from Aunt Jan and Uncle Adam, a light saber from Ang (he hasn't put that thing down since. He even slept with it!), hot wheel set and cars from Uncle Ju, a St. Vincent de Paul book from the Osbourns and THREE cards came in the mail, each containing $5 from Grammy & Grandpa, Nana and the Kyles. This boy sure is loved!

The cake was Star Wars, of course. One of my sloppier ones, but that's what you get when you have four kids to take care of. ;) But the good thing is, kids don't notice the mistakes and Funny loved his cake.

And that was the end to our lovely day.

My dear boy,
God gave you a heart full of love. You've been smiling since before you were even born. ( I even have a sonogram pic. to prove it.) You look after all of us, making sure we're happy. And if we're not, you'll make us laugh. You're the first one to offer a helping hand and have been a great role model for your little brother. You put up with a lot from your big sis but you never hold a grudge. And boy does it drive her crazy when she's angry and starts yelling at you and you just smile at her and tell her you love her. :) I can't imagine life without that great big smile. You talk of being a priest some day. I wouldn't be surprised. You have the perfect heart for the job. Thank you for gifting us with your love. You are a blessing. I love you. (oh, and do me a favor. Have mercy on your mother and stop doing dangerous things like flips off of Dad's dresser. I could do without the daily scares.)
Happy birthday to my smart, handsome, athletic, compassionate, tender hearted boy!
