If you can’t guess, J’s favorite animal is a monkey.
His favorite color is orange.
When it’s not yellow and green, that is.
He wanted a monkey cake, but he does not like chocolate so we decided an orange monkey would be perfect.
I think he was okay with it. In his reserved sort of way.
Blowing out five candles in only two takes.
I didn’t get any good pictures of the present opening because the light is generally bad in this house.
I was teasing J about forgetting to buy him any presents and he said something like, “Oh Mom. Next time, don’t forget!” As if, I blew it for his 5th birthday but by his 6th he wanted at least one present.
How did I get such laid-back kids?
This is his new Curious George lunchbox.
Not that he needed a lunchbox. But it was such a requested item that I gave in.
We were also graced with the presence of one of their cousins, coming through with his fiance, on their way to North Carolina to get married.
And here is Felicity, proving that she is nothing but steadfast in her rule of not sitting on anyone’s lap unless she sees them every.single.day.
“I don’t care if he is my cousin, I’m not sitting on his lap.
And you can put that on the blog!”
