Happy Birthday Jacob!

Jacob is 5 years old today. I can not believe how fast the last five years have gone. Jacob is a great boy who is usually obedient, thoughtful, and imaginative. Here are a few pictures of him over the years.

We had Jacob's birthday party on Saturday. Last year he went to a Star Wars birthday party in Michigan and ever since then has loved Star Wars. He had to have a Star Wars party this year so I pretty much copied the party he went to last year, thanks Amy:) I made this cake of a fighting scene from Star Wars. I couldn't quite capture the volcano on camera very well, we had dry ice so it would smoke.

After the young Jedi's had been trained the door bell rang and Darth Vader was there to fight the Jedi's. Some of the kids didn't realize Ben was just dressed up, they kept talking about how cool it was that Darth Vader really came.

Here are some of the Jedi's receiving some training.

We ate cake and ice cream outside, I had the cake on a little kids table that was the perfect height for Madeline. She liked to eat all the crumbs and little pieces.

We had a great party and love Jacob!
Also, Jacob shares his birthday with my mom, Happy birthday mom!
