Jacob is 9 years old!

The festivities started with a party at school on Friday – Sierra, Jamie, Andrew and I came to Charlie’s (aka Jacob, his new preferred name is a story on its own) classroom for the first of his birthday celebrations. He stood in his stander for the entire party and loved blowing out his candles with a fan that was rigged to his jellybean switch.

The next party was the school party, at home on Sunday. We had 2 of Charlie’s classmates, 1 of his teachers, his PT, nurse (and her grandson), Bubbie O (again, another story) and the vice principal. And he had a blast! We had some games set up and the prize for the winners was that they got to have their pictures taken with the birthday boy.

Less than an hour after this party ended, the family party with his cousins began. By the time it was over, all three kids were zonked. But it was so worth it! Charlie had so much fun, he had a great big grin the whole day.

The only thing missing from the parties were his princesses, most of whom were out of town. But the special phone calls were a treat!
