Davis turned 5 this week…a milestone birthday. Earlier this year we went to Disney to celebrate. Because of the trip, we planned to have a small party on his actual birthday. We ended up with around 30 people at our house. This was the first year I decided not to plan activities for the kids. So, they all just ran around and played and enjoyed being kids. Since Davis’s birthday is on Halloween, he always gets to dress up for the occasion. Earlier, he told me he was going to wear the brown paper bag from the Chinese restaurant over his head. That was going to be his costume. I was mortified, but Tracy forced me to just let him wear it if he wanted to. That lasted for about a couple of weeks. He then decided to be a mummy, which didn’t last long either. He finally settled on being a spy. I think he may have been heavily influenced by Phineas and Ferb’s pet platypus – Agent P, as well as a secret agent book that he checked out from the library. So, we all were spies. We had a whole array of guests, the pirate Jack Sparrow, Rapunzel, Mulan, a robot, a cat, a cheerleader, Obi wan Kenobi, Minnie Mouse, Sponge Bob Squarepants, a witch, and even an iPad. After playing and eating spider cupcakes and chicken nuggets, the whole gang went trick or treating followed by present opening. After everyone left, Davis was exhausted, but he had just enough energy left to pour out all his candy and count it. Fun times.
