The next morning I woke up to Noah staring at me with a big smile on his face at 6:26 a.m.! I said "Happy Birthday!" He then had to ask me if his hands looked bigger, feet looked bigger, if he was taller, etc. He said he sure felt bigger :) Once Ryan got up she gave him her gifts - she got him 2 books - one of which he had checked out at school and loved and asked to get it for his birthday. Once he opened them he read them to her - this made my heart very happy! Then we headed to Fort Smith for a fun day of toy shopping and Chuck E. Cheese. Papa Bobby gave Noah cash and he wanted to shop for his own toys from us. We went to Toys R Us first. Noah is part of the Toys R Us birthday club so when we got there they gave him a crown and balloon and announced his birthday on the intercom and told all the shoppers to wish him a happy birthday if they saw him shopping - and a few did, it was so cute :) After that he wanted to go to Walmart to shop a little. Then it was to Chuck E. Cheeses for lunch!

The next day was party day! I forgot to take Noah's picture with the hotel sign that puts his birthday on it each year, so we had to make a quick run over that morning to take a picture before they changed it to the next birthday! Then we went to church and it was party time! Noah chose a bowling birthday party this year. The kids had a great time and the parents were exhausted from helping them bowl! I was so busy helping 14 kids bowl I barely got any pictures - which, if you know me, is very disappointing to me - but it is what it is. Noah said he had the best party ever and lots of family and friends were able to make it to celebrate him. It was a great day!
Some words about Noah on his birthday. Noah is literally the sweetest boy. He has such a kind heart and cares so much about peoples feelings. He never wants anyone left out or to feel bad. He loves God so much already and says the best prayers. He is a very picky eater but a lot of what he does like is healthy food (sort of) :) . He loves super heroes and wants to be one when he grows up. He loves to go on walks and four wheeler rides and collecting sticks and rocks. He is very witty and makes us laugh every day. He loves to be on stage and entertain people. I know God has big plans for him and I am so glad I get to be with him to help him grow each day. Here is to hoping the next 6 years do not go by so fast!
