Nafan's birthday

Nathan turned six on the third and had a fun birthday. Jacob and I brought peanut butter cookies to share with his class at school. (Brandon was home sick with Daddy)

For dinner we went to a pizza buffet place that we like and that also has a couple of the
chuck-e-cheese type games. After dinner we came home for the present opening. He got almost all star wars things which he totally loved. The deal at our house is whatever Steven loves and is "into" at our house is what Nathan and Jacob are into too. Since Steven is on a star wars kick, that is what Nathan asked for for his birthday. He loved his presents and they have had a great time with the them. Mom and Dad gave him the mask and he got the cool nerf dart gun from Grandma and Grandpa Allred. It is a lot of fun. He loves it.

Dad is helping him fit the mask on. It has a microphone inside to make his voice sound cool.

Her are the star wars troopers (or whatever)

He also got a card in the mail from Grandma Great which we got today. Thank You. :-)

Nathan is really a joy to have in our family, and is growing up wonderfully. He is almost done with his Kindergarten year and still struggles a little with behavior. In fact he had to go to the principles office a couple of weeks ago for holding his fork up to a kids neck during lunch. I guess the boy was not listening to Nathan's story, so Nathan got mad and held a fork up to his neck. Now don't worry, I don't think he would have stabbed him or anything, he is just not the best at handling his temper. I ignore it a lot at home, but maybe I shouldn't. hmm
He is also starting to loose teeth. He lost his first tooth the middle of February and a second one came out a week later.

With the tooth of course came a note for the tooth fairy.

It is written a little sloppy, this is what it says,
Dear Tooth Fairy, How big are you? PS write a circle of how big you are. Can you try and wake me up? Love, Nathan written by Steven
And here is her response:

Nathan also loves to jump on the trampoline, which I am not sure I ever blogged about that new toy, but he loves it and we are happy to have a place for him to get his energy out.
He also loves his Primary teacher and his Kindergarten teacher, and tells them both that he loves them all the time. He is always hugging both of them.
He is becoming such a good reader and gets a lot of practice during scripture study with some new words.
He is a great brother and tries to make things very fair when playing with the boys.

We are grateful that he is a part of our family!

In response to the pose of all of them in their star wars outfits, a quote comes to mind:

Look at that boy's heed

I'm not kidding, it's like an orange on a toothpick

That's a huge noggin. That's a virtual planetoid.

Has it's own weather system.

I'm not kidding, that boy's head is like Sputnik; spherical but quite pointy at parts! Now that was offside, wasn't it? He'll be crying himself to sleep tonight, on his huge pillow.

I love that pick of the three of them, precious! They have all grown so much!!
Isn't it great to have so much fun with the characters, tooth fairy, Santa, Easter Bunny. I think I enjoy it more than they do. It is so sad to see them grow out of it.

I can't believe he is 6! Crazy. It looks like a very fun birthday with some PERFECT presents. I love the note to the tooth fairy and the one back is even better.

Happy Birfday Nafers. You've got a card coming from us. Sorry it's late. I sent it out on Wednesday, so hopefully it'll get there soon! We miss you guys!!!

Happy B-day Nathan. We thought of him on 03-03-09 but never got called. Sorry. It looks like he had a wonderful day. What is up with Star Wars??? These kids are obsessed. And I love the picture of him unwrapping his presents. His face is changing- he looks much older, and actually more like Teresa.

With Nathan's fork handling and cool equipment, you could hire him out as a security guard.

He's already threatening people with cutlery. I knew I liked that kid. It looks like he was thrilled with his birthday presents this year- nice job Teresa!

I love Nathan's birthday. I am happy that it was so fully celebrated! I am really happy to see the red box arrived on his birthday! Yea, USPS!
