five is right out!

(only my old roommates will understand the title. :) Sorry, couldn't help it as I was trying to figure out what to title this post.)

Peyton turned 5! He is so full of energy. Seth mentioned the other day about how we don't really experience the "terrible twos" with any of our kids, but Peyton is currently going through the Ferocious Fives. :) I had to agree. He is such a sweet, loving, giving, helpful boy. And then suddenly he can be quite the opposite. 

He is already an amazing reader. Doing math. Quite the athlete. Memorizing scriptures. Loves pleasing and helping any family member. So quick to forgive. Loves trying to figure out (or making his best guesses on) how and why things work.

We are so lucky to have him in our family. Oh how we love our middle child! :)

And yes, that chocolate cake is as delicious as it looks. And probably the easiest birthday cake I've ever made. The best news, it's even better and more moist the next day so you could even make it early.

:) Love the title, Dez. And I'm so impressed with all the things Peyton can do at 5!
