Happpy 6th Birthday Marcel!


Happy 6th birthday to my sweet baby boy, Marcel!  We celebrated yesterday with our family and a few of Marcel's friends.  He woke up early and all day said, "How many minutes until my party mommy?"  The theme was Star Wars, but our local grocery store didn't have any Star Wars cakes so he choose Sponge Bob.  Before we could get the candles in the cake and lit, he had pulled out the Sponge Bob and was licking off the icing.  That big smile is a bit deceiving as he actually got just a tad bit shy as we were singing to him.
If you're a regular reader, you know that I "bribed" him with painting pumpkins instead of a Chuck E Cheese party.  Here are a few of the artists painting their pumpkins! (Marcel, Chloe, Will and Olivia)
Of course, we had to have a pinata too!  Only four children got to hit it before all the candy came falling out.  No one was bothered though as they each left with a bag full of candy. 
Oh how I love this little man.  He is so out going, a master negotiator (hard to tell this sweet little man no), easy going and oh so loveable.  I love that he still wants to hold my hand, still wants lots of kisses and is my sweet little cuddler.  Happy birthday my sweet Marcel!
As I was typing this post, I was looking through his prior birthday pictures.  I'm missing his one year on digital and the scanner isn't working...but here are years 5, 4, 3 and 2.  So sweet.  On his third birthday, he cried when we sang him happy birthday.  Startled him and he went through a brief shy time.
Oh...how I miss those sweet curls from when he was three.
Here is his Star Wars themed birthday card!  This week's Just Us Girls sketch (designed by my dear friend Maureen!) was perfect.  He said, "oh...that's a pretty cool card!"

  2. That is a pretty cool card and it rocks that sketch!

    Looks like the lack of Chuck E. Cheese was not a problem judging by all the happy faces! :)

  4. Happy Birthday, Marcel! Looks like the party was a blast. Definitely waaaaaaaay cooler than Chuck E. Cheese's! ;) That card turned out perfect, Lynn. One of my 5 year olds is looking over my shoulder and ooohing and aaaahhing over it!

    And yes...I have exactly 2 hours and 45 minutes this afternoon while boys are ALL at school and I am racing to Archivers!!!! I hope everything isn't too picked over by then. One of these days, we must meet for shopping and lunch! :)

  10. What a handsome little man he is! And those curls, where did those curls go?? Do you think that when little boys hit the age of three that they disappear? I think it must happen, it happened to mine too. He's got such a handsome little grin, you must be so proud of him! Oh, and fantastic card too, for a boy!
