TJ Turns 4!

I got to help at Thomas' preschool on the day we celebrated his birthday. He got to wear a crown and got  birthday stamp on his hand (which is what he's showing in the photo). We brought in the treat that day--Rice Krispie treats--and the kids sang Happy Birthday to him.

We were thrilled that Mom, Dad, Jenn, Pat and James came to visit to celebrate Thomas' birthday. About 2 hours before we had cake, TJ asked where the party hats were. I was able to dig out these dinosaur hats from his first birthday--whew!

I made Thomas a lego cake which I'd found on Pinterest. He loved it and I was pretty happy with how it turned out--better than many of my Pinterest attempts!

Blue eyes and blue tongues!

Nancy put up birthday signs in our yard. Then, the next morning, she switched the third sign to say "Patrick" since it was his birthday!

One of Thomas' gifts was my childhood baseball glove. Can't wait til we can try it outside--it's a little cramped in the basement.

The birthday boys!

Jojo gave James a few spinning rides in the exersaucer.

Sweet Baby James!
