Jayden turns seven today!
On Saturday we had a family party for him with the usual crowd in attendance:
(Erika holding Baby Ray)
(Eóghan giving Uncle Brian some loving kisses!)
(Melissa stopped by, we haven't seen her since Flora's shower so it was nice to visit with her!)
(Rudy was having fun with the babies ~ here with Eóghan...
...and here with Sophie...
...I guess they wore him out because...
...we caught him napping!)
(Doug with a not-so-happy-looking Baby Ray)
(Sophie all smiles in her Daddy's arms!)
The Birthday Boy with lots of gifts and lots of smiles:
Another thing that made him very happy was a "Star Wars Battle" outside:
And on Sunday there was a Family Mass at Church to open Catholic School Week ~
Jayden was chosen to be one of the students that walked up the aisle in the opening procession at Mass:
(They all look so serious.)
Eóghan amused himself by chomping on Grandma's scarf:
After Mass there was an Open House at school, then we drove to 'Dave & Busters' for another Birthday lunch celebration, and Erik, Lori, Mia, & Sophie joined us. Most of the group spent a lot of time having fun at the arcade, but Ray, myself, Erik, Sophie, and Eóghan were happy to stay at the table where it was much quieter:
And Miss Sophie kept us entertained making silly faces for us (she actually does it on request, no matter how many times you ask her to do it she complies)!
I think Jayden had a great weekend, I know I had fun!
Today Jayden gets to celebrate in school with his classmates, he's bringing in cupcakes and goody bags for each student, and because it's Catholic School Week there are lots of fun events planned each day this week. Yesterday the students had to wear their team color (Jayden is on the Gold Team), today is 'Crazy Hat Day' so Jayden decorated a hat with lots of Birthday stickers, tomorrow is both 'Student Recognition Day' and 'Backwards Day' so the students will be treated to pizza for lunch and they will be wearing their clothes backwards! Thursday is 'Open House' so Eóghan and I get to visit Jayden's classroom, and Friday is 'Teacher Recognition Day' (I'm not sure what goes on for that other than a collection was taken up for his teacher). So there is lots of fun celebrating going on all week long! And this weekend is the Super Bowl and I'm sure there will be some celebrating going on in our house if the Giants win!
Happy Birthday, Jayden! Enjoy your special day!
