Here's our cute little group of goobers:
Anna, Tessa, Ben, Cole, Charlie (who may be the nicest four year old I've ever met), Isaac, and Julie.
My children naturally, and thankfully, have low expectations for their birthday cakes. Cole mentioned that he'd like an Ironman cake at one point, so I thought I'd find an Ironman toy and stick that sucker right on the cake. I didn't find one at the grocery store and was not going to make time to hunt all over for one, so I did my best to come up with something...
When it came time to sing "Happy Birthday", Tessa, Anna, and Julie had come up with a song to sing first. It's a shame I can't get the video of it to upload here, but know that the clapping medley they came up with as they took turns to sing to Cole was quite entertaining --and sweet.
Here are the two party babies:
Way to pick 'em grandmas and grandpas! A bowling set, Avengers outfit, Ironman, and a nice recorder:
Cole can be crazy, but he sure is a riot because of it. He has a great sense of humor, a curious mind, some hilarious facial expressions, and can be really sweet. I'm always surprised at how a kid this skinny and full of boney angles can be such an amazing snuggle buddy. He loves music, superheroes, playing with his big sister, cartoons, bows and arrows, bowling, the Wii, playing with friends, climbing, throwing things, and messing with stuff he isn't supposed to mess with. He has also taken up wearing his bike helmet whenever possible --we just go with it, and have gone with it to Costco. :)
Love you my big boy!
