October 26th was Aspen's 6th Birthday. We started the day off with birthday donuts, Ellie and I met her for lunch at school, and that evening we went to Pei Wei for her birthday dinner. Granny and Poppa, Aunt Norma, and the Valarezo family joined us.
On Friday night we had a haunted, backyard, bash with all of her friends.
I think she had a good birthday week.
Thanks to all our family and friends who helped us make her party a success. Maw Maw and Paw Paw (Herb and Donna) made cupcakes, Granny and Poppa (Mom and Dad) took care of Ellie and ran many errands for us while we got things ready. Jaime and Phillip Norton ran errands, let us borrow things, delivered hay, and did whatever last minute things that needed to be done (oh, Phillip was great at monitoring the trampoline activity) Kelley Carpenter and family let us borrow decorations, and our neighbor John decorated the backyard.
I don't know if we are blessed or just plain lucky, but I am so thankful for all the wonderful people who are a part of our life.
