Super Hero Capes, made from t-shirts, were a big hit at the party!






Today my little boy turns 5. Where has the time gone...

We had his first "friends" party this year and he wanted a super hero theme. The kids decorated super hero capes, then ran a super hero race. Then we had hot dogs and cake. Trace said "It was so much fun, it was AWESOME!!"
It seems like not to long ago the nurses put that pudgy baby boy, with his wild hair and beautiful eyes, in my arms and I was instantly in love. Trace is a great kid so without further ado, here are the 5 things we love about Trace.

1. Trace has an amazing spirit. He gets along with everyone around him and is in tune with the feelings of others. He's the first to notice when someone is sad, and the first to try to cheer them up. He genuinly loves everyone around him.

2. Trace has a great imagination. He's always coming up with silly games to play and funny things to say. I love his sense of humor.

3.Kenadee loves Trace because "he is so so special to us!" It's true. I can't imagine our family without him.

4. Jaxson loves how patient Trace is with him. They play together and have a good time almost all the time.

5. And finally, we love that Trace loves us. He wants to help around the house, and watch his brothers and sisters, and take care of all of us. He loves us and we love him. Happy Birthday Monkey!

What a fun party!! I love the obstacle course idea Annie! You are an amazing Mommy!

Happy birthday to Big boy Trace!

Time flies so fast. You are one who seems to enjoy every minute of your babies lives and that is a good thing!! Do you know that Richard had his 5th birthday on the road when we moved from Washington to Utah? That doesn't feel like very long ago :(
He is 14 now!
