We had a wonderful day today and Spencer got to pick what we did ALL day. That was the best present we could have given him. ha
We went to Pump It Up for open play in the morning. We played hard for the whole hour and a half. I can hardly move now though. I guess I am too old to be climbing through obstacle courses and behaving like a six year old. I feel like one though.......well actually I feel like someone ran over me with a truck right now. Maybe I should act my age, but that would be NO fun.
Then we went to feed the ducks and play in the playground at the park. Spencer got to pick where his birthday lunch would be and picked Olive Garden, totally surprised me. I figured we would be eating at Incredible Pizza for sure. We called and invited James, Queta and Rebecca to come with us and had a great lunch. The waiters sang to him for his birthday and embarrassed him, but I think he kind of enjoyed being the center of attention a little too. Then we came home for his birthday cookie and presents. Our good friends Sharyon and John and their daughter Kayla came over to give the kids all their birthday and Christmas presents. They thoroughly enjoyed that too.
Afterwards we rushed out the door to lazer tag. The little ones stayed out in the waiting area with me and played air hockey while we waited for Spencer and Dad to play. Spencer has been wanting to play for a while now and thought it was the coolest thing.
By this time lunch had worn off so we went to Wendys for "hangaburs" as Spencer calls them. Then home to bed. He told me it was the "best birthday ever!" I am so glad he enjoyed it so much.
Spencer, I can't believe how much you have grown up. You inspire me everday and I am in awe of how smart you are. You are reading very well already and learning so much everyday.
You are the sweetest little boy I know and are always trying to please everyone. You don't want anyone to be sad and try to fix it if they are. You have such a zest for life and enjoy every moment.
You are so cuddly, even at six and are always giving hugs and kisses. I truly enjoy spending time with you , we have so much fun!!!!
I hope this year brings you nothing but smiles and laughs!! I love you little man!!!!

The kids wrote their letter to Santa tonight. Actually the little ones drew him pictures. I wanted to share Spencer's letter, he did it all by himself and even addressed the envelope. I will translate below. You can click it to make it larger.
I want a transformer and a tractor and a poster and a car and a action figure."
Then he drew himself and santa. Not bad for sounding it all out by himself. He even argued with me about the "ch" in transformer" and tractor being a "ch" not "t" sound. lol

She is such a ham too and wanted me to tape her. The others all conveniently
"forgot" the words once I started recording.
We have most of our decorations up now despite the kids best efforts to "help". They were putting ornaments on the tree and everytime I would put one on, 4 would fall off as they just hung them by one little needle on the tree. It took a little longer than expected to decorate.
Their little faces just LIT up with all the stuff. They had every musical and talking critter going at the same time, my head still hurts.
Before they went to bed they wanted to make sure I wasn't going to put it all away before they got up. The little ones must have asked a dozen times if it was still Christmas.

We went to High Star Christmas Tree Farm today with my local multiples group. We always love getting together with them and have fun.
The kids got to see Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas. Caden didn't want to talk to him until he bribed him with a peppermint candy - then he ran over and gave him a hug.
We took a wagon ride through the Christmas trees and played in a maze and some hay.
I just have a ball seeing everything through the kids eyes. There is nothing better than being a Mom!!!!
