I can't believe it!!! Eli is 7!!! WHAT?!?! How did that happen?!?! I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday and now he's 7. Crazy how that happens!
Eli is an amazing kid!! He is so full of energy. He loves life and all it has to offer. He loves to learn new things and he love to spend time with friends and family one on one. I am just so proud of him and cannot wait to see how God is going to use this sweet boy. He has a amazing desire to help and serve others and I just know God is going to use those gifts in a very unique way. Eli begs me to go on mission trips and to help kids that "don't have much".
Eli decided that he just wanted to celebrate with family this year. As we were discussing party options (and aren't kid parties crazy out of control these days?!?!), he just said "Mom, can we just have a family party and go out to eat? BUT, I still want a cake and presents!" : )
So, he made my job really easy. He chose Joe's Crab Shac.k for dinner and a fire truck themed "party". He is VERY into fighting fires right now!!! He loves all the equipment that firefighters use and likes to learn how it works and keeps them safe. It was a very fun birthday party!!
Eli not so patiently waiting to open presents : )
So happy about his firefighter gear
And what birthday would be complete without a Lego set (or two) and a Nerf gun?!
The fire truck cake.....that looks a lot like a big red bus! : )
All the toys and the sacks and boxes always provide the most entertainment!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET ELI!!! WE LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK!!!!!!!
