Instead of cake we had donuts, because Trenton LOVES donuts. Then all the kids sang Happy Birthday (while Trenton danced for us - oh brother!). Then it was time to go home. Whew! We survived - thank goodness for Ibuprofen. :) It really was a fun birthday party. I was so grateful we were able to use the church. (17 kids in my house - could you imagine!)

This year was a big Birthday for Trenton. He turned 5 years old! The day of his birthday was jammed packed. There was so much going on. He was so excited he was up bright and early to open presents before Jimmy left for work.

The 2009 Holiday Season has come and gone. I can't believe how fast it went. Unfortunately for me 3 of the 4 weeks in December I was sick as a dog (sinus issues, cough, and ear infection - yuck)! But, I was blessed to be feeling well during the week of Christmas.
