Happy 6th Birthday Monkey Man!

Today is the Mighty Monkey Man's birthday. And instead of talking ad nauseum about the party, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves:

Lava Lindsey shows the boys how she can make water disappear. Little do they know that she uses stuff that they put in DIAPERS to do that. They were sufficiently grossed out.

The cake. And yes, his name is Joey too. Needless to say, that's why we call him Monkey Man on this blog...well, that and the part about him being a Monkey Man.

The usual gang of suspects. Combine electricity, strobe lights, fire, Kool Aid, and cake and you have, um, some pretty wild boys. But all sweet boys too.

Tonight, as I put him to bed, he said "Mommy, thank you and thank Daddy for all the cool stuff you got for me. This has been the best birthday I've ever had."

You know what, buddy?
You're the best gift we ever got.
Love you lots.
Today, I'm thankful for my Monkey Man. Happy birthday to you, my sweetest boy. You make your mommy so proud!

Great picture! Glad he had a great birthday, what a sweetie. Did he complain that none of the football players on the cake were wearing yellow uniforms???
