elijah turns six!

Elijah turned six on Halloween. His mom threw him a really spooky party. Look at that cute (I mean scary!) bat piñata she made above! I'm realizing that birthday parties get even more fun as kids get older. Each year they get more into the spirit of the event and more enthusiastic about participating in the activities.

They especially loved the doughnut on a string. All the kids giggled through the whole game and it was really fun to watch.

Elijah wanted to be an alien for Halloween, so we divied up the crafting among the parents. My job was to make the hat. I thought I followed directions, but apparently not, because Elijah refused to wear it! He said it went "too high up!" His mom had more luck with the cool alien tail she made him as you can see!

Happy Birthday, Elijah! We love you!
