jimmy's birthday

my sister mary and jack had been very seriously planning jimmy's birthday for the few weeks leading up to it. on the morning of the party, we were sitting on the couch and jack turned to me and said, "we have so much to do to get ready for jimmy's party tonight." his eyes just about bugged out of his head when i told him the party was actually in the morning... "mom, we have so much to do. seriously, mom. we have to cut more leaves, make the vines, hang the vines, hang all the monkeys, finish the palm tree, move all the furniture on the porch to make it look like a jungle..." (the party had a monkey/jungle theme). i have never seen jack so serious about something or so on a mission to get it done. he worked all morning helping set up, even to the point that when a neighbor kid stopped by to ask if he wanted to play he immediately said, "no, i have to work," without even giving it a second thought. needless to say, it all looked great and jack was very proud of his work. our porch is still currently a jungle as a matter of fact. how much longer it will be has yet to be determined...

oh, and jimmy obviously enjoyed his cake.
