We have had a few small "parties" already, but his BIG KID party with friends is yet to happen. Due to my weekend classes and a few other things we have had to make the boy wait until the 20th for the official party.
Owen was a gracious gift receiver, it is so wonderful to see in action the values and manners we work so hard to instill in him. His grandparents have spoiled him rotten and he was genuinely excited and thankful for each and every gift.
The night before his birthday, Adrian and I decorated the family room and the look on his face when he saw it in the morning was worth the effort. There was an obscene pile of prezzies from mommy and daddy and even with all the excess, Owen took his time opening each one...thanking us...playing with it or trying it on (clothing) before moving on to the next one.
Love you buddy!
