Gideon is FIVE

While I have a minute, I want to quickly share some of the photos from Gid the Kid’s FIFTH birthday. That’s right…fifth. I can’t believe it, either.

As time allows, I’ll share more of what’s going on in this sentimental brain of mine – although I’m sure you have an idea of what that will be about…time goes by too fast, where did his baby legs go, I have a lump in my throat, yada yada yada, blah blah blah – but for now I’ll just leave it at this before I add the photos: I had a great time putting together this celebration.

The theme this year was simple: Gideon. Which translated into a random assortment of 5-year old awesomeness with lots of chocolate, lots of his favorite toys and lots of classic birthday gaiety, much of it inspired by pictures I found on Pinterest.

But one of my favorite things that happened this day was the impromptu photo shoot that took place at the party site. I was hauling the last items to the shed in our backyard when I looked over at Gideon, already dressed for the party, looking handsome as a devil, and decided to plop him on the table and snap away. The reason this makes me so happy is because his 5-year old pictures? DONE. Buh-bye Picture People…

More birthday fun to come…
