Not to be outdone by his slightly-younger sister, Shepherd decided to go ahead and turn a year older, too.
Soooo, he’s five now.
He was anticipating his big day for weeks.
And at last, after having to endure his younger sister’s birthday, it was his turn.
He, like Vivienne, asked for some Leap Frog products.
And no, much to my chagrin, we do not own any stock in Leap Frog.
Nor do we get anything for posting about how much our kids love it.
But still… they love the stuff.
Then it was time for the much anticipated cookie cake. Thankfully not decorated by me, but by a very nice lady at the bakery.
Who can actually use frosting to write something intelligible.
Cake and ice cream were devoured.
And Shepherd was happy.
And so, we were too.
Happy Number Five, little man.
His little face just explodes with all that 5 year old happiness!!
Happy 5th birthday!!!

Happy, happy birthday Shep! Your smile just lights up the blog!
And I had forgotten how close in age he is to my big boy. I think they’d create lots of mischief together I’m ever lucky enough to actually meet you and your crew. 🙂
Oh, and curiosity is killing me, what gift card brought such a huge smile?
