September 19th was Gavin's 6th Birthday. It fell on a Sunday, so we decided to have a friend party on the Friday before. He invited friends from church and his cousins who live in town to his "skeleton" party. We had pizza and root beer, had a treasure hunt and ate Icecream cake. Then Gavin opened his presents. He was so excited and each friend was so thoughtful with their gifts. Gavin was ecstatic. On Sunday evening we had cake and icecream with family. Gavin was so excited that he got to have two birthday parties. He got so many presents and pretty much got everything on his wish list. He has been really gracious, sharing his presents with Tyrone, who insists that they are now his toys as well. These past 6 years have dragged on at times, but I also find myself wondering when did Gavin grow up so fast. He is turning into such a sweet, mature young man. He is a great helper to me and he loves learning and doing grown up things, like using a can opener. He is a blessing to have in our family and we love him dearly.
