our brother-in-law, jacob, has a family tradition of making homemade donuts and apple cider during the fall
and by golly, we wanted to join in the fun!
jacob made donuts and i glazed them with regular glaze, chocolate, and maple icing. they were oh so soft and tasty.
we combined this party with a celebration for jack's 6th birthday.
this awesome 6 year old was out of his mind excited about receiving pogs from alli and jacob. i couldnt be more proud. i was obsessed with pogs in 4th grade and would take them to school and have competitions with the boys after lunch. i have found jack organizing his pogs each morning before school and it makes me smile.
he was given so many incredible gifts, including a skim board, a bass fishing trip (his dream!), binoculars from dad, books, a ninja turtle shirt, a star wars shirt, moolah, a hawkeye toy and a leonardo ninja turtle.
i love this boy.
he invited me to have lunch with him at school and i thought i better take advantage of this stage where he still thinks im somewhat cool. before school, he splashed himself with some brute aftershave and asked me to wear something "kinda fancy" when i met him for lunch. he is hilarious. and he's growing his hair out to be like the middle school boys that "shake their head to get their bangs outta their eyes".
happy birthday to the greatest 6 year old i have ever known!
and just a few random pics of some other cute faces i get to see often.
