FC: Henry's Birthday Album 2006-2010
1: Once a year, we attempt to duplicate the amount of joy we felt the day you were born . . .
2: You LOVED playing golf with Dad, hitting balls at the range. To celebrate Henry-style we turned our house into a putt-putt golf course for you and your friends by using astro turf, cardboard boxes, and even firewood for edging. Our favorite hole had to be the last. Down the staircase, through a long cardboard tube and onto a bullseye in the foyer. There was lots of laughter by kids and parents, alike. You had a great time! | Henry turns 4! | 110 West 66th Street Kansas City, MO "Henry's Fore-th Birthday"

6: Henry turns 6! | Reading Reptile Bookstore Kansas City , MO "Arty Party" | Henry turns 5! | Our favorite family hangout, "The Reading Reptile Children's Bookstore," helped us celebrate your 6th birthday. The owner, our neighbor Deb Petid, put together fun art projects for you and your friends.

9: 2235 Shakespeare Houston, TX "Family Fun" | This year we decided to celebrate your birthday "family style" and continue doing so every other year. I bought a special book, "Henry's First Day of Kindergarten," which your teacher Ms. Huyhn read to the class. Jude and I joined you for treats at school, and afterwards you had a special outing with Dad to Build-A-Bear Workshop! | Henry turns 6!
10: Henry turns 007! | 2235 Shakespeare Street Houston, TX "Secret Agent Lego Party"
11: You invented the theme for this party yourself! We picked up the boys in your first grade class dressed as secret agents. After watching our homemade "CIA training video," you had a blast completing special tasks to become agents. You used a black light to reveal a secret phone number in the attic (to agent Aunt Joanna), discovered hidden keys for locks, and worked together to unscramble words. The grand finale was cutting the cake. It was a fake. After capturing double-agent "Sweet Cakes" (a.k.a. mom) in the front yard with silly string, everyone celebrated LOUDLY with chocolate cake!
12: I hope that for every candle on your cake you get a wonderful surprise. | AGENTS: Chase Richert, Sinan Makdisi, Max Feldman, Owen Silberg, Jack Goza, Isias Workenah, Jude Johnson, Max Goodman, Nathan Cooner, Ben Casal
13: Looking for Clues! | You loved LEGOS more than ever after this party. They could entertain you for hours at a time as you built spaceships, tall towers, fast cars, and even an elaborate swimming pool scene once. They really brought out your creativity.
14: This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 God gave us a very special gift when He gave us you, Henry!
15: Birthday mornings always yielded a smile. Construction paper greetins were Mom's specialty, with some year's spelled better than others. | Henry turns 8!
16: Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you.. Happy Birthday to Henry Happy Birthday Tooooo YOOOOOU! | Henry with his 2nd grade teacher, Martha Servos (right). Milk and cookies for the class (below).
17: Edwards Greenway Plaza Theater Houston, TX 3-D Movie "Guys Night" | "Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Trwader"
