My Boy is 5... Wait! What?!

How is it possible?

Five is a big deal. I can clearly remember my fifth birthday party at Peter Piper Pizza. I remember my little aqua shirt, my pig tails, getting my first Barbie and all my friends who came. I even remember my mom giving me an IOU birthday present. Ha! She was a busy lady (and a great mama). It was a picture of a plastic swimming pool that I would be arriving in time for warmer weather. That still makes me chuckle.

I just wrote My Boy is Four, like, last week. He was so cute and little then. He's still cute, but seems so much bigger.

Jeremy's been promising the big boy that when he turned five, they would play golf together. So we went with a golf theme and I love how it turned out.

Here are a few pictures from the big night.

Table Talkers Spring Sale (Only $2.99)

Purchase at bottom of page.

Here are what other moms are saying about Table Talkers...

We have three girls. Our oldest is four, the next is 18 months, and the youngest is 3 months. I'm so mentally drained from the chatter of my four year old all day long :) that by dinner time, I just can't think any more! What a great way to still have fun conversations, even if I can't come up with it myself! --Ardelle

I bought your book several weeks ago and tonight was the first time I put it to use.  We are a military family and my husband is gone right now.  After a day of tending to my four children (ages 3 months to 7 years), the day seems to unravel at the dinner table.  Tonight we actually laughed and smiled and I didn't need to threaten anyone:).  You book is beautiful and a blessing.  Thank you. --Sarah 

I must tell you that we tried the one about giving clues for movies as a trial before I bought them. I have three girls 2, 5, 8 and they are always in a hurry to eat and leave the table. After introducing the game, I had to kick everyone out of the dining room after 40 minutes!!! It was so much fun. The next night we ate dinner at McDonalds because they do a fun Valentine's Day dinner and our high school show choir sings; the place was packed, standing room only, and the girls wanted to play a Table Talker game!!!! Tonight as we headed to the table, they wanted to know what game we were going to play. Thanks so much!! --Kelli
