Last Day of Being Five/Turning Six

This picture speaks for itself - true happiness!

Annika was really good about Josiah getting all of the gifts and attention.

Oh, to be six again!
Will enjoyed the little party.

Josiah is very sweet.

On Tuesday night we were staying at the Edelweiss Resort and Lodge. It was Josiah's last day of being five, and he asked to sleep in my bed with me. Okay, that's fine. Little did I remember the excitement a five year old would have knowing he was turning six the next day and could open his gifts in the morning.
At 5:30 am he began sitting up in bed and looking at the clock. Up, down, up, down. Scratch the sheets. Deep sighs. Up, down, up, down. Eventually I told him he couldn't get up until 7. Soon he lay his head toward the foot of the bed where he could watch the clock. Sit up, lie down. Sit up, lie down. Sigh. Sigh again. He was about to burst. At 6:59 he sat up and watched the clock. 7:00. "Yay! It's my birthday!" He, Annika and I got up and went out into the living room of our suite. Soon Hans, Rachel and Will came downstairs and the gifts were given to Josiah. Needless to say, Josiah was pumped! He opened one gift after another. He was pretty happy with his new treasures.
