Early in the morning on November 9th, Gavin woke up to a wall of balloons that fell in on him when he opened his door. He had chocolate chip muffins and milk for breakfast, and opened his gifts with his family. He got a new Green Lantern game for the wii which was his favorite gift and he couldn't wait to play. I brought him McDonalds for lunch at school and he gave out mint Oreo Pops to his classmates with sprinkles. He was so excited for his name to be on the morning announcements and to go to the office and pick out a special pencil. He wanted his party the same day as his birthday this year. Gavin had everything planned and he started talking about it the day after his birthday last year. He likes to have butcher paper on the table for his party so everyone can draw, like we have done almost every year. He wants the small cans of soda so everyone can have their own. And he likes to watch a movie with his friends, either at the theater or at home like he has done for four of his birthdays. This year he invited four friends from school to come over and have pizza and cookies and creme cake and to go see Wreck it Ralph. He was in his glory when his friends arrived and just loved being the center of attention. Jeremy took the kids to the show and he says they were wired the whole time. When Gavin got home he said he had the best time of his life. That's a win in my book! Happy Birthday to my little super hero!
