Jory's 5th Birthday

Jory had a fun birthday this year (i still can't get used to the fact that I have a 5 year old...) He had school that day so we brought worms and dirt (gummy worms and pudding and chocolate) in for his birthday snack. The boys loved it but some of the girls complained. hehe. Then we had a chill party for just family on his birthday. He had both sets of grandparents there because Keiths family came to visit for a few days. Uncle Brent, and Uncle Adam were there, and Dustin (my cousin) and his fiancée Melissa came to. Jory requested a viking/dragon party after his favorite movie "How to Train your Dragon". We had decorations up for the party and a yummy gandolfo's cake with a dragon on top :)

We had a pizza party first and then served the cake:

Jory scored big on his presents. He got pjs, shoes, a couple movies, 3 new dragons, 3 nerf guns (!), some coloring stuff, and lots of T-ball gear for this spring. He was so cute opening them up, if you blinked you would have missed it. He sped through the whole thing, but kept saying how awesome everything was and that this was the best birthday and the coolest party ever.

The next night he had another party when his cousins Carson and Reese came up. I'm so mad that I didn't take pictures. :( They dressed up like vikings, which only lasted about 30 seconds, and played some viking games. They decorated shields and had a nerf war, hit a pinata, and took turns throwing swedish fish into each others mouths (its from the movie) and then we had cake again. It was really fun and chill and the kids had a blast.
I sure love this boy. He is sweet and tough all at the same time. He is a great big brother and a loving son. He draws me beautiful pictures and teaches me how to play baseball. He loves his family. He is a wonderful example to his brother and I am grateful for him every day. :)
