Happy Seventh Birthday, Jorge!

(found this in unpublished drafts.  Oops!  Will backdate it later.)

Jorge had his 7th birthday this week!  As always seems to happen for him, this meant 3 separate birthday events.

His actual birthday was on a Monday, so the weekend before, we had family over for a house party.  As also always seems to happen for him, no one could come except Grandma and Aunt Judy.  Everyone else was sick.

No matter.  We had a great  spread with snacks and a Death Star cake that was enough to serve everyone a few times around.  The theme of the day (year, life) continues to be Legos and Star Wars, or the combination of both (thanks Grandma and Aunt Judy for celebrating with us and for all you do!).

You are never quite so happy as when you are building something.  Legos, food, a fort, a wooden craft, a rubber band bracelet...you love to DO.  You are an action verb.


 The actual day of birth was, of course, a Monday school day.  But you woke to find your traditional papered doorway.  Since dad would be working that night, we did gifts and leftover birthday cake at breakfast to celebrate together.  Lego Star Wars Watch?  Triple WIN.

And a star-fighting themed mini-pinball machine?  Extra win.  (Thanks Grandma)

Finally, there was the "friend" party.  We rented a playroom at the gym with climbing and jumping and all the other verbs you could ask for.   Another Star Wars themed cake was very well received.


 Happy Birthday, Jorge!
