Malachi's Birthday

Whew, turning 5 was tiring...for all of us!
Malachi woke up on his big day to some decorations and a few gifts from Mom and Dad. The theme was an obvious choice for our little Mario-lover!

I wonder if Elliott will like this bike as much when it's his hand-me-down?

After a quick breakfast we anxiously awaited all his friends who came to celebrate with him that morning.They had fun painting magnets, playing a couple of Mario-inspired games, eating pizza and cake and playing together.
After a few hours of down time, we geared up for party #2 - family dinner. Malachi's chosen menu was scrambled eggs, sausage, fried potatoes, cinnamon rolls and fruit. And then more presents...

Even Adeline got into the Mario spirit!

Thank you to all our family and friends who came out to celebrate with Malachi and make his birthday special. We love you all!
