Dylan turns 6 today! He will be officially 6 at 2:47pm, but we won’t be with him then! Weird that he’s not with us all day on his bday! Poor kid and his “during the school year” bday! ; ) Oh well. He assures me that Mrs Vagts will celebrate his birthday at school. He will get a birthday sign put up in the morning and then they will have a little celebration for him at the end of the school day – which falls around 2:47, so I guess that works! We had his party here this past weekend and as usual, it was a FULL HOUSE!! We wouldn’t have it any other way though. Dylan LOVES when everyone is in the same house so there is no better way to celebrate.
He chose a Power Ranger cake this year. This was probably the most labor intensive one I have done so far. The frosting was being naughty as usual and gave me a hard time. But I muddled through.
It was seasonal this weekend! Meaning, it wasn’t 80 degrees and sunny like it normally is for his party. What the what?! We had to wear coats and got to play in the leaves! Probably a more “normal” October bday celebration, but strange nonetheless. On Dylan’s 1st birthday it was over 90 degrees and our AC had trouble keeping up with 20some people in our house.
The kids didn’t seem to mind the temps though.
Our leaves are all on the ground now b/c of some gusty winds last week. So Eric made a giant leaf pile that was enjoyed A LOT by the kids.

It was nice of cousin Easton to dress up for the occasion. Costumes were optional, but he wore one anyway. ; )
Dylan requested a pinata for his party this year. Just what we need – a ton of candy before Halloween.
The kids did pretty well on it, but we gave cousin Chandler the final whack.
Back to the leaf pile – this time with adults.
Uncle Ryan was the leaf pile maintenance man – making sure the pile stayed maintained.
Kelli acts as though she is having fun (she was) but she was not impressed by all the leaves that stuck to her coat, hair and the leaves that got in her mouth. You’re welcome Kelli for me not posting the picture of you spitting the leaves out.
Time for cake!
He requested and received the entire head of the Power Ranger. Must be his birthday!
Uncle Tommy poured some milt!
We also celebrated Gma Kim and Gpa Danny’s 40th wedding anniversary this weekend. They were treated to a vacation to South Padre Island in February by their 5 kids. They are pretty darn excited to get away this winter!
Gma and Gpa with all the kiddies.
And here is Dylan’s last day as a 5 year old. He’s been really into his legos and put together this Star Wars thing that he got at his party from Gma and Gpa W all by himself. He was pretty proud.
Here he is this morning – freshly 6!
Off to school instead of spending the day with us! Sigh. But we’re picking him up later to go out to eat and to his sissy’s dance class – he’s been wanting to go watch her dance so he is pretty excited that he finally gets to go today.
Happy 6th Birthday Dylan!!!! We love you!!!
