So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAZEDO!!!!
Our sweet little guy turned four on Sunday. He wanted nothing but "Super Mario" stuff for his birthday. We tried to oblige. He woke up on Sunday morning so excited because the house looked like this for him:
He, of course, had to wear his hat on backwards as he opened presents. He wears that hat all day every day. Silly kid.
Look how happy he is about having his new pajamas.
He was so excited to open his Mario lunchbox. He even took it to church that day and used it as his scripture bag. Inappropriate? Maybe. But, hey, a kid only turns four once. At least we didn't let him take his pajamas in his bag. He did try to sneak them, but we took them out.
And he got a Super Mario costume. Now he has Mario and Luigi, and is thrilled about it.
Of course, there are always a lot of extra helpers when it is time to open presents.
And now he has a backpack to match the lunchbox. He had to name all of the different characters on the backpack.
What a cutie with his costume, slippers, and lunch box. He was not too happy when we told him he had to take that stuff off to get on his church clothes.
That afternoon we had lots of family over for cake and ice cream. This gathering was playing "What color are my eyes" with Kate. I think all of them had their eyes poked at least once.:)
This is the kind of circus we run around here. Kids all over the place, and plenty of adults that love them to pieces.
Time for cake!!!!!
Hayden loved having everyone sing to him. He was grinning from ear to ear the whole entire time. It was so cute. It made me want to sing the song all over again just to see more of that sweet face.
He did a great job blowing out the candles. No slobber or spit flying.
I also made a chocolate pie just in case Hayden decided he wanted that over cake. He has been on a major chocolate pie kick lately. He wanted cake. But baby Danika sure loved the pie!
Lana loves babies. She was having fun playing with her other sweet cousin, Bailey Jo.
Later that evening, Grandma and Grandpa Jennings stopped by to see Hayden and give him a gift. He loves the Buzz and Woody that he got. He has played with them constantly.
The day ended with Kate sleeping on my dad. She took a nasty spill off of the bar stool earlier in the evening and bonked her head pretty hard. She needed to be snuggled.
It was a great day, and Hayden is still talking about how much fun he had on his birthday. He is such a sweet little guy, and is my little buddy. We love to play Super Mario Bros. together and will have fun figuring out his new Mario Galaxy game, I'm sure. It's all worth it when he sits next to me and snuggles with me while we play.
We love you, Buddy! Happy Birthday!!!
