Ristow's 5th Birthday

My little boy is 5yrs old!
He makes birthdays fun! He is so enthusiastic and appreciative for everything, it just makes you smile. I overheard him as he saw the kitchen all decorated for his birthday "wow, this is the best birthday ever! God, thank you for how beautiful this all is!" I love that his first reaction to it was to thank God for it. It was an awesome prayer from a sincere heart.

Ristow got to take transformer cupcakes to school for his birthday and he wore a crown from burger king. His excitement poured out to everyone around him. Then after school Ristow got to choose where he wanted to go for his birthday dinner, the obvious choice for him was Snappy Tomato, a pizza buffet!
After dinner we opened presents and had ice cream! (the cake is for his kid party on saturday)
He played with his toys and built legos and had a great time.

And the best part for me was that no baby was born on Ristow's birthday! Ristow gets to keep his special day all to himself! Though, she can come anytime now, however, I would like to go to his bowling party on saturday. I know, beggars can't be choosers, but I like to at least pretend I have some control in this matter ;)
Happy Birthday to my sweet, creative, compassionate, loving boy!
I love you Ristow!

happy birthday, ristow! wow, he looks old with that big boy haircut in that first shot.

bold move scheduling a party two days before your due date!

ristow's christmas gift is coming via amazon, but it's addressed to christopher (cuz his name was on the memory file.) it's not wrapped or anything...sorry 'bout that!
