Yesterday we celebrated my son's 6th birthday. It's hard to believe that he's six already. When people tell you not to blink while your children are growing, it's so true. They grow up so quick. I'm one of those detail oriented people. I watch every little detail in a persons appearance and actions. I love to sit back and watch my children play and interact with people. It says so much about the character they're developing. I was watching my son opening his gifts with his cousins and friends. I loved the way they worked as a team to read the cards and open the gifts. I loved watching their little faces light up with every rip of the paper.
