Last week, I proclaimed it officially the week of Drew, as we celebrated his birthday all week. I celebrated his birthday for an entire week 5 years ago as well. So, I told him we would have a week-long celebration of his birth every 5 years, as he hits those key age milestones. I am SO glad he was born! Each day last week, I gave him a special gift to show him just how thankful I am for him.
|Here, Drew is walking through the door after arriving home from work and sees one of the surprises we made for him.|
|He mentioned recently he would like to have some dominoes to play with Luke. This was a Day 2 gift.|

Happy Birthday Drew (Daddy)! We love you so much!
Audrey and Lauren turned 5 today. I still cannot believe they are already 5! Erica, Drew's sister, created such a cute "Under the Sea" Little Mermaid party for them.
|Luke liked the decorations hanging from the ceiling.|
|The decorations made us feel we were under the sea! There were balloon fish, water made out of streamers, and even jellyfish made from streamers.|
|Abbey enjoyed sitting with her new friends at the party. (On Abbey's left are some of Audrey and Lauren's birthday gifts--two American Girl dolls).|
|The cake--entirely made by Erica!|
|Audrey's turn to blow out her #5 candle.|
|And Lauren's turn.|
