Our first born turned 4 years old 2 days after Christmas this year. It's crazy to think 4 years have gone by so quickly. I almost have a meltdown anticipating what his 8th birthday might feel like. As nuts as my kids make me, I love them little and absolutely do NOT wish for them to grow up. But....they are, and quite rapidly too. Jack's 4 year stats were 35 pounds and 41.5 inches tall. He's the sweetest, most sensitive little boy I've ever encountered and I love him more than life itself.
We had his birthday party a week before Christmas because who really wants to compete with Jesus for attention and my Mom was in town to help me with everything. Jackson requested a fishing party and it was a LOT of fun! Special thanks to my friend, Danielle for snapping photos while I relaxed and drank my wine ;)
the kids "fished" with sticks and magnets!
we roasted marshmallows and made s'mores on *homemade* fish shaped graham crackers!
and...ate cake, of course!
saw this on pinterest and LOVED the idea--interview your child on their birthday, so CUTE! my favorite response from Jack: Q:If you could have one thing, what would it be? A: A Spiderman phone so I could call Lightning McQueen.
We even tried fishing in our little lake behind our house...no bites, but the kids had a blast!
On his actual birthday we went BOWLING with some great friends!! My kids first time bowling--they're naturals!
Jack and his favorite girls ;)
it's not always like this, they fight, scratch and scream at one another--but for the most part-they are best friends.
