Story told by: Brody
I turned five today!! I was a bit nervous last night about turning five because I really liked being four, but when I woke up, I knew I was going to love it!
Lainey told me I could go in her room whenever I wanted on my birthday, so by 6:30 a.m. I was reading in her room while listening to music.
Daddy went out to get me a chocolate sprinkle doughnut, and then made bacon for me when he got home. My perfect birthday breakfast!
Mommy had a fun birthday shirt for me to wear! (I didn’t know that I was actually supposed to be in Disneyland today. Thank goodness Mommy and Daddy had been keeping that a surprise, so they’ll save that trip for another time!)
Then I was opening presents by 8 a.m. I couldn’t wait!
Gma and Gpa got me lots of awesome t-ball supplies! My t-ball season was just canceled, so this will help to fill that void.
My very own Tooth Fairy pillow for my first tooth that I just might lose this year!
I have been wishing so much for an American Girl Wellie Wisher doll. And today my dream came true!
I held her most of the day!
Grandma and Grandpa sent some good new books. And my very own OSMO with new games!
Turning five in my house is a very big deal because that’s when you get gum!
I had at least “fifty hundred” pieces of gum today.
Na Na and Ba Ba sent me some great art projects!
After presents, we had to get ready to meet my birthday buddy, Chloe, for her birthday scavenger hunt. We made a sign for her and had her favorite treats as a gift. We also had a clue to send her to her next scavenger hunt location.
She arrived, and social distancing went out the window for a moment because we forgot ourselves and were overcome with excitement.
She’s a teenager now!
Lainey finished her school by 7 a.m. today (my request was no school for myself). She read to me while Henry finished up his assignments.
Mac and Ivy came to sing to me and give me a gift card to the candy store. Do they know me or what?!
Then I requested to go over to the middle school parking lot to play basketball and ride my bike.
The Knights found us there, and had some great cards and a present for me!
Then we brought home Happy Meals for lunch!
The Campbells had warm cookies delivered from Insomnia Cookies. SO good! Seriously. So, so good.
I really love going to the movie theater, but since it is closed right now, Mommy and Lainey decided to bring the movie theater to me. Lainey helped to make the tickets (and kept a good secret).
Then we went downstairs to the movie theater!
Once downstairs, I found an amazing concession stand.
I wanted some of each candy in my popcorn as a yummy topping!
We rented “Trolls World Tour” to watch. I was very excited!
After the movie, while we were playing outside, I was VERY surprised to find my very own birthday parade coming down the street! Mommy and Daddy have friends in the police department and fire department who helped with this. And then my good buddies joined as well!
This parade was EASILY the highlight of my day. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate. I was so surprised!!
After the parade, we played with water guns for awhile. Then for dinner I requested hot dogs and Cheetos. My favorite!
Then my chocolate cake with chocolate frosting! Yum!
I kept saying, “This was a good day. Such a good, amazing day.” As Mommy was tucking me in, she asked if I liked being a five-year-old. I said, “I do. It’s going to be good.” Such a perfect day!!
