Over the weekend Snug turned five. FIVE!!!! We had a pancake breakfast and presents when he woke up.
Snug has a good sense of humor. He put this on his head and said "Look! I'm "Rosebud"!
He was very excited to get "big boy" Legos.
He had a friend birthday for the first time.
He wanted a Toy Story birthday, and this is the cake I made. I love making my kids' cakes!
We had the party mostly outside-we did crafts inside, but other than that the weather was hot and beautiful.
He had five friends over, plus he and Little Monkey Man. We played several games and I tried to make them Toy Story related. Here the kids were Slinky Dog's head and tail and they had to toss a water balloon between them without it popping. Yeah...so...that lasted not so long!
This is pin the parts on Mr. Potato Head. There may or may not have been some cheating...
Snug thought it was a really funny game.
I think it was my favorite game!
The end result!
After roasting hot dogs on the fire (one child at a time with #1 closely monitoring) we had cake and ice cream.
Rosebud took a nap through most of the party as she has a terrible cold and I didn't want to share her germs with the kids.
After naps and time at the pool, we met up with #1's parents for ice cream at a local dairy.
The kids were thrilled to get ice cream and to see their grandparents. Did you know there are gluten free ice cream cones?
After ice cream we went out to feed the goats (ok, that is my favorite part!).
Rosebud still wasn't feeling great, but she does love the goats. That's my girl!
So Snug had a full, fun fifth birthday. Can't believe he's five!
Snug loves life. At eight years old, he is a big brother four times over, a role he takes very seriously. He loves to read, swim, run, play Legos, and hear stories. He is sensitive to the needs of others and has a very kind heart.
Little Monkey Man
Watch out world! This middle child is not about to be left out of anything! Formally known on this blog as "Baby J" he is a baby no longer. His sense of adventure is downright dangerous and he will push your buttons all day long. This six year old is very generous and has a sweet smile that will light up a room. Don't let him use his "eyes" on you or you may fall under his spell!
Four years old and quite the little lady. Not sure what we'll do with all of her emotions, but loving watching her grow. She loves ballet, preschool, and church and all of her friends-both real and stuffed variety.
She's three! Hard to believe how fast time goes by. She's my girl and she's demands lots of my love. Growing, changing, and making us all laugh (and scream...not gonna lie), this little one is so precious.
Oh this baby. Easiest one, cheeriest one. Laid back, happy, sweet.
