The countdown is on.

Today marks six days until Tucker turns six. We started birthday celebrations today with Mike’s side of the family and when I realized it was six days out I figured we could turn this into a week long event.

I made a paper chain & hung it in his room and put something special on each day (like dinner out, his choice and fro-yo night). Just a little something each day to celebrate our boy.

After we celebrated with Mike’s family, Mike and I decided to take the kids to Ikea. Tucker has been asking to play in their play place again since doing it for the first time this summer. He & Lexie went again, and again Lilah backed out at the last minute. So we took her with us to have lunch and walk around. After we picked Tucker and Lexie back up from the play place we took them to get hot dogs before we left. Then we headed to Target for Tucker to exchange one of the gifts he got that was a duplicate.

It was a nice day. A good day.

    I’m glad you’re having such a fun week. I finally used the Boston Market coupons I won! Our meal was delicious. Thanks again, Karen.
