Griffin Turns Five

A certain little boy I know turned five recently. Griffin Peter has been counting the days until his birthday for about the past two months. Every morning upon waking he'd say, "Mom, how many sleeps until my birthday?"

We were really lucky that Steve made it home in time to celebrate with him. (As you can see, Steve is taking full advantage of the fact that he doesn't have to report back to work until mid-November, and therefore opting out of shaving).

Griffin wanted to put his Transformer "from Nana and Papa" on top of his birthday cake, so that is what we did. It was so big that I didn't have room to write his name. He proclaimed it his "best birthday cake EVER!"

Our dear Margaret spoiled him rotten, and he loved every minute of it.

Riley hasn't been feeling great lately, but he perked right up when he smelled birthday cake, and saw presents being opened. That dog loves a good party.

Griffin had a great time with his friends. I just can't believe my little Griff is five!

Looks like a great party! Must've been a hot day - no shirts needed : ) So glad Steve came home in time for it - he looks pretty relaxed in his lawn chair - I like the beard!

Hey, did you get a new dining set? I don't remember white chairs... Or did you pain?

Paint... not pain.

Happy birthday Griffin!! How wonderful that he had dad home to help him celebrate - I bet that was his favorite birthday present :)
