Happy 6th Birthday, Tyrone!

Today my baby turns six years old! It's hard to believe that this once cranky, difficult, intense infant has become such a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. He's still intense (i.e. when he loves he really loves, and when he's angry he's really angry), but his teacher always comments that he's always got a smile on his face. I guess that's not the norm. But really, Ty is such a lovable kid and I'm SO blessed to have him!

The pictures are from his kid's birthday party which we held at our acreage yesterday. There were 9 kids in total, ranging in age from 5 - 9 years old. I was thankful for a beautiful day weather-wise, and for the massive amount of space we have now for kids to play. The kids had lots of free play time, as well as some structured games and a treasure hunt all over the yard which led them to the cake and presents. I think everyone had a good time. But I will say this: 9 kids together at this age results in a lot of tattling! My ears were tattled off by the time the party was over. But it was well worth it. Ty was so thrilled with his party!

Today we're having Grandma and Grandpa over for supper and on the menu tonight is Ty's favorite food--lasagna. We'll also be having baked corn, Caesar salad and garlic toast. For dessert we'll be having chocolate fudge self-saucing pudding cake with ice cream. We LOVE that stuff!

I adore my son. I love making him happy. And I feel so blessed and honored to call him my own. God is good!

What a adorable little guy!
Love his eyes, and what a smile!!

Thanks, Kristy. The smile--well, that's his "forced smile" look. His natural smile is better, but for some reason he was having trouble forming a natural smile for his pics this year!

Tyrone~A Very Happy Birthday To You!

Kimmy~how precious is he? I would have a hard time resisting that adorable face! Glad you survived the party. I've been there on the tattling end! Thankfully they usually grow out of it.

Haven't had a chance to read your other blog today, but I will play catch up in the next few days.

Hope you are doing well. Let me know if you want me to pray for anything specific, okay? Take care friend. In His Love, Amy
