Hunter turned 6 today!



Six years ago today Hunter was born. Hunter has been so excited about his birthday and has been talking about it for weeks. It finally came, and he had lots of fun. We started the day off by going to IHOP. (For some reason Hunter loves this place..."IHOP and go" he told me.) Will took cupcakes to his class and after school he opened his presents and then had a few friends over for more cake and ice cream. He has had a really good day and his teacher, friends, and family have all made it such a special day for him.


Some of Hunter's favorite things at 6-

- Lego's
- Nintendo DS
- reading
- school
- his friends
- helping mom cook
- riding his bike

Hunter is the sweetest boy I know. He is always thinking of others. He daily says things like, "ladies first" and "Mom, you're beautiful!" He loves his brother and tries so hard to teach him things. He is such a good example to Austin. Hunter tries his best at everything he does and he makes us so proud. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
