Friends, I’m not sure how it happened but on Sunday our little Jackie turned 3. A big party like he’s had the last two years was out of the question due to COVID but Dale and I, along with Hannah and Mikey, went over to his house for the afternoon and we had a grand time.
Hannah had gotten Jackie a bouncy house as his present and, as luck would have it, the thing was delivered on Thursday and they got to keep it until Monday. To say that Jackie was living his best life while jumping up in down in there with all of his favorite people would be a gigantic understatement. Even this Nana managed to haul herself in there and jump around with him for a bit!
I brought over some cheese and crackers and pepperoni (Jackie’s favorite) and Hannah made a beautiful platter of candy. Dale was all over those sweets and I think he’d probably prefer something like that for Friday Night Snacks instead of our usual savory treats!
Jess made cupcakes and we sang and my little bug (who isn’t so little anymore) blew out the candles. I love his dirty face and impish grin in this photo, it just sums up his personality so perfectly.
So it couldn’t be the birthday we would have preferred but it sure was a special day anyway.
Happy Birthday, Jackie! We all love you to the moon and back!
