The Only Option

Gavin's new obsession is Lego Star Wars on the Wii. If we would allow it, he'd play it all day long. Yesterday he asked me if I'd play with him. I asked, "Do you really want to play with me or is it because I'm your only option?" He quite frankly said, "It's because your my only option." Wow! I guess at least the boy's honest.

A Very Happy Day!! :-)

Gavin was very disappointing to have to change the date of his party, but when the day finally came he was so excited he forgot all about that sick day. I think the waiting made it even more exciting for him. We had a great time! Gavin ran wild with his friends while the parents were able to just hang out and visit. It was great not having to worry about messes, entertaining the kids, clean up or anything like that.

Gavin chose the space room and said we had to have a Wall-e cake to go with it. Isn't that a great cake? I wish I could take credit for it, but unfortunately I'm just not that talented. My friends sister in law Jacci made it. Gavin loved it!

A BIG thanks to Gavin's friends for coming and all the great presents!

A Very Sad Day!! :-(

Gavin hasn't been sick in over 2 1/2 year and for that we feel very blessed. But today was the worst possible day for that long run to end. We had planned to have his birthday party today at Kangaroo Zoo and invited 16 of his friends to join us. Last night Gavin went to bed at 9:00pm and didn't wake up till 10:30am. I was hoping he had just hit a growth spurt or something, but that was definitely NOT the case. He woke up with a fever, tummy ache, and a soar throat. So after a call to Kangaroo Zoo to reschedule, a call to my cake lady to order another cake, and a call to all the parents, we are now waiting patiently for next Wednesday. Poor little guy!!
