Calling All Superheroes!!

So Saturday was Eli's 5th Birthday party.
Please excuse the crappy photos, I am not sure what setting my camera was on.
The pictures are crazy colors, or too dark, or just wonky looking.

But I HAD to document the party and Eli's 5th birthday.

Also, can anyone tell me how my son is 5 years old?
How did this happen?
This spiderman websprayer was {the hit} gift! He loved it as you can tell by his face.

As we were getting ready to sing "Happy Birthday" he looked at my sister
 & says, "Hey Nannie! I'm watching you!"
This kid is a TRIP!

Looking {quite) embarrassed being sung to.
 I mean he {IS} five years old now, maybe we should stop!
Not gonna happen kiddo!

He said he didn't want cake, just the fondant- he ate the bat signal!

Excited to open gifts!
He was so lucky to get such great gifts from our friends & family!
