Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Tristen is Six..................

Tristen is six. He just had his birthday party. His birthday was on the 23rd but we waited till Saturday. It was sort of fun. It was as usual mainly adults but Tristen does not yet mind. He knows he is the center of attention and so it's probably a good thing that its not a bunch of kids. We invited anyone who knows Tristen but it was the usual ones who came. His aunt Carole was missing this year, she sadly died just a short time ago. I invited Lauren this year with her baby. She is one of Debbies girls (Dans 2nd wife) the youngest. She has a baby now his name is Desmonde.

I can't believe he is 6.
Here are a few highlights. Cooper had a grand old time, he took over the birthday hat.

Tristen gave each of the Guests a gift of a stuffy and a book. I think that it's important to give as well as receive and he was very happy to do that. Then Reina got to present Tristen with his gifts. Grandma Tammy Nelson sent him some lovely things and he was very pleased and got to call to thank her. He also called Uncle Jason to thank him and today he got a gift from Justin and Carrie. SO the next few days he will be sending out Thank you cards. I also think that is important. He is going to learn that now he is 6

Aunt Vicki stopped by the night before with some cleats for Tristen for when he begins Soccar next year (we hope) She also gave him a tent for his bedroom.

He is really enjoying playing in that, he is faking sleep for the picture.Anyway the kids all had a good time and I think it all went very well. It's a lot of work but certainly worth it. Laura helped me by coming early and helping to set up. That was great, I would have been whooped for sure without some help. I made easy things but it all takes time to put together.
