Somebody is Six

It's him, not her :)
 Andrew's big birthday present was a bunk bed!
 Andrew gets the bottom bunk and J-P gets the top.
 It even has a desk for homework legos.
 And some nice drawers and shelves on the other side.
Thanks to craigslist, we got a great deal on this gently used set.

Tonight we will be celebrating Andrew's 6th birthday with the dinner of his choice: Taco Bell and Make-Your-Own-Sundaes (he prefers ice cream to cake!)

Oh, and Andrew would like everyone to know that today is also St. Francis' Feast Day.  He's a good doobie like that :)

Andrew, we love you so much, and you make us proud with your handsome charm, your intelligent ponderings on life, your sensitive side, your helpfulness and awesome behavior, and your love of being part of our family.  We have been blessed to know you and even more blessed that you know us. 


  1. Awww, such a handsome little man! Happy Birthday to Andrew :) Love that new bunk bed!!

  2. Happy birthday to your handsome boy!!!
    Love that bunk bed and I prefer ice cream as well!

  3. Oh Happy Birthday! What a great gift...lots of room! What a sweet child you have!

    Love the dinner choice....sounds awesome to me!

  4. Happy birthday to Andrew! Hope your day is wonderful!

  5. Happy Birthday Andrew!! That bed is GREAT!

  6. Happy Birthday Andrew!! Have fun celebrating. I love his choices for his birthday dinner and desert! Yum!
    Per your comment on my blog: Yes I am lucky to be getting shower! I felt kind of "guilty" having one actually because I know so many don't get more then one. So many people told me it's perfectly ok to have another baby shower because every baby should be celebrated! Plus, since we had Darby and everything was PINK, we are in desperate need of boy-ish .. everything!! We went pink CRAZY with her. After loosing 2 and finding out we were have a GIRL, we had to make everything girly! I think I have like 4 gender neutral bibs to use for Finn! Poor guy. Anyway, if I had lived closer, I would have totally thrown you a shower for all your kids!!! Pregnancy is hard, we deserve to eat cake and party! :-)

    Speaking of, have fun tonight! Happy Birthday Andrew!

  7. Happy Birthday, Andrew! AWESOME time you have a b-day, can I come? Your dinner choices sound ideal! :-)

  8. I don't know if my comment will go through twice, but Blogger told me it didn't go through, so I'll say it again:

    Happy Birthday, big guy!! That's an awesome bunk bed, and I'd take make your own sundaes over cake any day! :)

  9. Happy Birthday Andrew!!! I bet he is IN LOVE with his new bunk bed :) William still draws pictures of his, almost a year later!

    I hope dinner and dessert was delicious and everything he ever hoped it could be :)

  10. Happy birthday!!! That bed looks awesome!

    Those bunks are awesome! Amazing what you can find on Craigslist when you look at just the right time.
