Trace's Birthday


Today our kiddo had his big 4th birthday. We had a big party yesterday complete with balloons and Jellyfish cake. He had so much fun playing and my favorite part was that as he opened each present he's say "Oh my gosh, I love that." or "Oh my gosh I wanted that!" It was so much fun now that he gets the idea of a birthday. I saw this on another blog and thought it was a good idea so here I go:

For Trace's 4th Birthday here are the 4 things we love about Trace!

1. He is so funny. I seriously crack up everyday talking to him. He's says the funniest things like last week when I told him that it was good that he got back on his bike and kept riding after an accident he was like "Yup, thats my motto".

2. He loves his brothers and sisters and is so patient with them. Yesterday at his party Kena was upset because she didn't have any presents and he was like "It's ok sister, I will share with you!"

3. He gives the best hugs. There's nothing I love more then having his little arms around my neck!

4. He sings Goodnight Sweetheart to us everynight before bed. I taught it to him after Mom died because I remembered her singing it to us and thought it would be a fun tradition to carry on. He's learned all the words and makes sure we hear it everynight.

Hey Annie! It's your long lost cousin, Gail! I just created my blog and I saw your's off of Tenille's page. I added you to my friends list. Hope that's okay! How are you anyway?! Your kids look so much like you.

love the jellyfish cake! I think Anna is going to have an Under the Sea birthday (b/c she loves Ariel but she wants boys to be able to come too). I think I'll steal the cake idea. Can you send me the recipe?
Happy Birthday Trace! Hooray for good big brothers.

Annie, I absolutely love that cake, you are such a cool Mom! It's been so long since I've seen Trace it makes me blue. He sounds like such a character. I didn't know Cory at that age but I know you were quite precocious! Love you guys!
