Hudson is our food kid, so of course he had lots of birthday plans in mind that involved food. You may recall my crazy town anxiousness about a blue Crager cake for his birthday, well I’m happy to report I totally delivered when I happened upon a clearanced Crager key chain. I might have done a little happy dance upon finding this little guy in the store. Hudson thought it was the greatest cake ever. We all enjoyed his cake together on Sunday since he would be at school all day on his actual birthday.
We have an ongoing birthday tradition where we decorate the birthday kid’s door after they go to sleep the night before their birthday. Every year it’s something different. Hudson plays with Legos 99.9% of the time…he talks about Legos…he is this crazy good builder of just whatever he imagines…he should be Emmett for Halloween, so we knocked his door out with just some pieces of construction paper. Our easiest door to date.
He asked for rainbow waffles for breakfast. And at his school, you can bring a special treat at lunchtime. He wanted Oakland A’s cupcakes. I think they totally screamed Oakland A’s…or maybe just “Green”. Either way, he didn’t care and was really just excited to have me and Amon at lunch with him.
Shortly after school we had to head to the ballpark for their double header. It also was our night to provide snacks for the team. In true Hudson fashion he requested snickerdoodles and Sprite. I would like to toss a shout out to the shop on Etsy who oddly enough had Crager baggie cover things for just $4 and now have mysteriously disappeared. Not sure what happened to their shop, but maybe search on Etsy for “obscure mythological crocodile baggie topper things”. #nailedit
I would also like to issue an apology to the parents on Hudson and Solomon’s baseball team for giving your children Sprites and snickerdoodles at 9pm last night. I hope that worked out okay for you
After their game everyone was super hungry so we enjoyed Hudson’s choice of Chickfila and were practically the only people there. It was 9 o’clock on a Monday…I can’t imagine why.
Needless to say, everyone this morning had a birthday hangover. Too much sugar and not enough sleep, but when I asked Hudson if he enjoyed his birthday he said, “It was the best birthday ever.” That’s what a lot of sugar and a lot of love with do.
Hudson Kelley, goodness it’s such an honor to be your mom! You make life sweet and fun and you teach me so much about the character of God. You’re heart is so kind and big. You are truly a master builder when it comes to Lego creating and you can get dirty and play hard on the baseball field. We love watching your life unfold and watching as God pursues your heart. You are a world changer and I cannot wait to see what all God has in store for your life. Happy 6th birthday! We love you so very very much.
