Another Year, Another Party!

We survived another birthday with these two! Although they were convinced that they didn't turn 4 until the party actually happened. We would talk about the party and the Frozen theme (that they decided on back in January) for the past month and Drew would throw in side comments about how he wanted a monster truck cake. Sigh. Really buddy, just get on board with the combo party and next year we will discuss separate themes OR a simple "happy birthday" theme and get them an individualized cake:)

I DO wish the weather would have cooperated a little better but that didn't stop a couple people from going outside and playing some lacrosse and driving the new big wheels! I mean 30 degrees and wind after the nice run of sun and 50's-60's we had a couple weeks ago. We really enjoyed our time celebrating with family and friends and thank everyone for coming!

At this point in their 4 years of life:

Kelsey likes to shop! (Yay!) When I ask who wants to come along shopping, she is the first one to be excited and enjoys it. She likes PINK - and if you ask her she'll say "light and dark" ;) Loves talking about her long hair and how it looks like Rapunzel. She is a big fan of chocolate (my girl) and she is our singer. We get to hear all the songs she learns in school!

Drew is a homebody! I have to coerce him to go shopping (if leaving him home is not an option). His favorite color is blue. He will talk our ears off, especially in the car on the way from the sitter (so much so that Kelsey will tell me that he is hurting her ears!). His conversations are mostly about hunting with his uncles and plans for "when he gets bigger..." Drew is the bigger dancer out of the two and sometimes hears a beat that just makes his hips wiggle:)

Oh Baby Benson

He was so excited for a play room full of new toys!

Even Kelsey's princess castle (that Dad promptly returned to the play room:))

All the boys and Kelsey playing games

New wheels

Sometimes you gotta tell them how to do it

Gotta invite the family so that they can put together the gifts they give them!

And to end the night, friendly cousin wrestling
