Why the Tree of Life?


Happy 6th Birthday, Kirven!

Kirven turned six last Friday. How is that possible?

Anyway, we opened presents Friday morning before Dad headed off to work. All the kids had colds, so we pretty much stayed inside convalescing. I had hoped that we could go do some-something activity of Kirven's choice, but he wasn't in the mood to do anything but lie on the couch. He didn't even want to go to Chick Fil-A for lunch.

We gave Kirven his first watch. He was very shy about it all day. He didn't want to put it on when he opened it, but I saw him looking at it and holding it this way and that throughout the day. By dinnertime, he had experimentally put it on his wrist. He's hardly been without it ever since, and he has enjoyed declaring the time to me at random intervals (sometimes right, sometimes wrong).

'Creature' about to be wished upon. Dunagan was the primary candle placer. They almost look like flaming teeth. Though on second thought, I think that was the tail end.

We had planned to have a party with Kirven's friends Saturday afternoon, but between scheduling it so close to Thanksgiving, other friends having other obligations, and the birthday boy and siblings getting colds, we ended up canceling the friend part of the party and just going out to dinner with extended family and back home for cake and presents.

I think he had a good time, even though he wasn't feeling the best and we had to cancel his birthday party with friends. He got to spend a lot of the evening putting together an erector set with his Uncle Taylor.
