Happy Birthday to My Sweet Boy, Nicholas!

It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Nicholas' first birthday and now he is FOUR!  I could easily let myself get emotional about how quickly time has gone and what a remarkable little boy he has become. Nicholas at 4 wants to be a fireman when he grows up and would like for his brother to be a trash man, his favorite color is red, his favorite animal is a cheetah (because they are the fastest runners), his favorite activity is probably swimming and his favorite book is called, "The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark." In pure Nicholas fashion we celebrated and we celebrated big!  We sung happy birthday to him on three different occasions over the last few days (Not including when we were in Portland two weeks ago where Ruby and Tessa also had a mini party for him.)  Geeze, this kid is loved!

We had a very small pool party for Nicholas on Friday where he takes swim class and invited 5 families followed by pizza and cup cakes in the aerobics room.  I'm so disappointed in myself that I forgot to take pictures of the kids in the pool, I guess we were having too much fun!

Happy Birthday

Several unsuccessful attempts at getting all of the kids together for a picture.

Round two was an impromptu snow day birthday party this morning at his friend Izzie's.  It has been snowing on and off since Saturday here which is very unusual and we are suppose to get another 10 inches tomorrow.  So nice that we live close by our friends, it was such a nice way to beat cabin fever!

 Christian thinks so too!

Round Three was tonight, just the four of us.  His favorite, pasta and cake!
