Parker, while we were home the Eltons celebrated your 6th birthday since many of them will not see you before March 3. We had a cake and presents at Auntiee Shar Shar's house. Mimi supplied all of the Star Wars decorations, and Auntie Shar Shar put them up. You were so excited and exclaimed, "THIS IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!!" Aunite J and Uncle J, Mimi and Pop Pop, Grandma Bea, Uncle Jason, Auntie Shar Shar, Uncle Richie, and Blakers where there to sing to you and celebrate.
When we were little our Nana (Pop Pop's mom) would give us $20 for our birthday. But, she would tape twenty one dollar bills together and have us pull them out of a box. Auntie Shar Shar carried on this tradition for you. I can't even begin to explain your reaction. You giggled, squealed, screamed, and just about lost it when you saw you had all of that money. One twenty dollar bill is cool..but twenty single dollar bills are AWESOME!!!
We are blessed to have such an amazing family who loves you so.
