I woke up this morning to a sweet little 5 year old voice. His face about an inch away from mine, saying "I was just going to ask you if I can open my presents now?" Seriously how could I say no?!?! Chad has been wanting to give him his gift since we bought it!! Chad was so excited he even wrapped it himself and he is not a gift wrapper!! I usually wrap every Christmas and Birthday gift, so I was very surprised to see his gift wrapped and ready to go!

All of us, still in our jammies, made our way into the family room, and Austin got to open his present from Me, Chad and Alyssa.

Austin has been wanting a Nintendo DS since, as long as he has been able to know what one is. All of his cousins have one and he usually props himself up behind them so he can peek over their shoulder and watch them play. So as much as I am against video games, we decided we would get him one, and just have rules on time limits and such!!! He made my day when I got to see his face and how thrilled he was to have his very own DS!! Afterward he said "mom and dad I love you, and I love my new DS, thank you!!!" all of that said in his new baby voice that he has been talking in lately :)

Austin got a couple cards in the mail yesterday from his Grandma and Grandpa who are in Holland until September, and His Great Grandma Roundy in Escalante, and his Great Aunt Marilyn, so he pooled the money together and deposited most of it into his savings account, and then Chad took him to target and he picked out The Ghostbusters Game, which he bought with his own money, he was so happy!!
I can't believe our little baby boy is 5 years old!! We are getting excited for his birthday party on Saturday!! He just can't decide if he wants me to make him a ghostbusters cake or a batman cake...I am thinking to myself, that it doesn't matter which one he chooses, I am by no means a cake decorator and people are going to need to use their imagination when looking at my decorated cake!!
