This post is exactly one month and 20 days late, but here we are. :) On December 8th Talmage turned 5 years old! Because Kendall was on second shift at the time we didn't have a chance to celebrate his birthday on the 8th. The following night we had our little family birthday party for him. He started by opening presents,and playing with them a little bit.
After presents we went to Kendall's work party that they put on for the kids of the company. The kids all got to see Santa and they each got really nice gifts from him.
They had all sorts of activities for the kids to do. I think the kids' favorite was the balloon artist. They each got to pick their own creation (except Rigdon who was too young).
They did a cupcake walk and each of them got to win a bunch of goodies there.
After all of the partying we went home and opened a few more presents. He doesn't look very excited about this lantern, but I think it's one of his favorites. I frequently find him looking at books in bed by lantern light, long after we put him to bed.
He even got some Spiderman Walkie-Talkies.
Trying hard to wait until the end of the song before he blows out those candles...
We also had a very late dinner of hamburgers. Talmage wanted orange cupcakes for his birthday dessert, and the kids each decorated their own with candies.
Talmage is such a great source of smiles in our home, with his cute dimple. He is a mini engineer, always trying to figure out how something works, or just how hard you have to push it before it will break. He is in preschool at the local museum and absolutely loves all of the science that he is learning there. He is a very intelligent and sweet boy, always good for big hugs. We love you so much Talmage!
