Alaska boy, I can’t believe you’re six.

Your first day on Earth, I was terrified. I was in charge of something ALIVE that couldn’t take care of itself at all.

You got bigger, a little at a time.

And one day, all of a sudden, you were a little person – not a lump.

And from the start, you danced.
Dancing!

And danced

And danced

and danced some more

Birthday!

I don’t know what’s next – maybe you’ll fly a plane, or build a rocket, or simply watch all the episodes in existence of Phineas and Ferb, but know that we’ll be here to cheer you on.

You big doofus.

    EEEEEE! Happy birthday to the Dark Lord! I can’t believe he’s six already. And that six years ago, I sent something from New Zealand to Alaska for him. ;) Six years old is such a grown up age. I hope the Dark Lord has a fantastic day!
