Nicholas is 6!

Nicholas had a fabulous birthday! He really wanted a pinata, so we made one at home by covering a balloon with newspaper dipped in a water-flour mixture. We filled it with slap bracelets, sticky hands, and finger-puppet snakes.

We started the party by playing with hot-wheels cars at the skate park. I was a bit worried about broken arms and cracked skulls with all the steep slopes around. We made a few places off-limits and luckily there were no injuries.

Then we walked over to to the playground and played red-rover. Then we had a treasure hunt to find the pinata. We only got around to doing one layer of newspaper, so it wasn't very strong. It broke quickly :)

Nicholas's friends were so generous with their gifts! He was on top of the world and kept saying things like, "I am so spoiled!" and "I am the luckiest boy in the world!" and "My friends are so nice!" I agreed with him. He was spoiled. It was so very fun to spoil such a thankful boy.

I can just imagine him saying these things:) He is so sweet. I tell my roommates all about him and they thought this was the cutest story. They never knew a 6 year old to be thankful.
