It is true - our big guy turned 5 today! James Thomas Wilsey - the big 5. I can't believe it - seems like we just brought him home from the hospital. Well it was a fun day - he got to go to preschool. Then stop at sonic for a drink on the way home. Soccer practice - where he had a few visitors - Grandma, MawMaw, Aunt Steph, Zach and Macy showed up to see the little guy in action. Then it was home for our birthday supper. James chose the menu - Chicken Alfredo (suprised me since he has only had it one time). Then it was present time - the favorite time for a 5 year old on his birthday (ok - for anyone on their birthday). Then it was cake and ice cream time - which all seemed to enjoy since the room got quiet for the first time during the evening.
What did James get for the big event - Wal-E transformer, and Eve robot from Grandma, Fireman suit from Ms Dixie, Corvette Car from Ms Frances, Wal-E book and Coloring Set from Aunt Steph, Zach and Macy, Wal-E blanket and sheets from MawMaw. Telescope, Star Books, and Binoculars from Mom, Dad and Jorja. He was so excited about all his gifts.
Here are a few pictures of the great day. Of course the birthday celebration can't end there. James is having his friends over for a movie under the stars party on Friday night - we will be watching Robots...James can hardly wait!
