Lincoln's 6th birthday was Sunday, but we kind of started out the celebrating on Friday. Layton and I took him lunch--McDonald's, which was his choice. However, when I got there, he had gotten a lunch tray! They were having pizza and his buddy, Jack, only gets a tray on pizza day. I think Lincoln just wanted to eat the pizza with his friend. Little stinker! Anyway, we enjoyed eating lunch with him. I forgot to take a picture though!
Friday night Mimi and Pappaw came up for the long weekend. We had chicken tacos and Mom's apple pie to celebrate Jeff's birthday that night. His birthday was on the 14th.
Saturday morning Lincoln had a basketball game. Mimi, Pappaw, and Uncle Jeff got to come watch him. He didn't play till the second quarter, so this is how he decided to spend his time on the bench. He is a MESS!!!
When he got in the game, he ended up playing most of the rest of the game (mostly because there were a couple of kids on the team that refused to go in). He scored 3 goals this time! He was really tired at the end, but I know he had fun! I think he enjoyed that Mimi, Pappaw, and Uncle Jeff got to see him score!
Dribbling in to shoot!
After Linc's game, we went home and ate lunch. Then, Mom and I took Jeff shopping to help him decorate his guest bathroom. He bought towels, mats, and pictures. I can't wait to see it! That afternoon, we all went to watch Hannah cheer. She was really nervous because she didn't think she remembered her cheer that they were going to do at half-time. Once she got out there, she did fine though!
After that we went home and let Lincoln open his presents! He could hardly wait!
Another Lego game!
Angry Birds Jenga! He played this at Life Group and loved it!
Hot Wheels race track. It is really cool. Layton loves it too!
Mimi and Pappaw and Uncle Jeff pitched in to help us get a basketball goal for him. He was really surprised!! I loved his reaction!
Giving thank-you hugs!
I had originally planned on getting a much smaller one, but Kris worked his magic at Target and got 30% off this big one because the box was beat up! It was kind of hilarious!
Lincoln helped his daddy put the goal together. They started it Saturday night and finished it Sunday afternoon.
Saturday night we had smoked pork shoulder for supper. I made Lincoln a basketball cake. I thought it turned out pretty cute.
He was so funny blowing out his candles. He blew...
Sunday afternoon after they finished putting up the goal, the kids had a blast playing on it. They enjoyed it on Monday too (even in the cold!).
Monday afternoon he got one last present from Jack. He has really enjoyed the sticker book and I know he will love building the Nuts & Bolts Crocodile! Thanks Carrie and Jack!
Lincoln, I hope you had a great 6th birthday. More importantly, I hope you know how much we love you and how proud of you we are! While you can be quite a handful at times, your creativity, imagination, humor, silliness, enthusiasm, energy, and sweetness are what make you YOU--and I wouldn't have you any other way!!! Happy Birthday, Buddy!!!
