Happy 4th Birthday Kaleb!!

OK... so Kaleb's birthday was yesterday... and this post was supposed to happen yesterday too... but the day just got away from me!

We had a great day! We woke up and headed to Kaleb's GG's house. That is his great grandma if you were wondering what GG was! She made us waffles and we hung out there for a few hours. Then we headed to the oh so fun Chuck E. Cheese for some play time. It was actually pretty enjoyable! Matt and I were pleasantly surprised! Usually I want to pull my hair out from the minute I walk in that door... but this time was fun. The boys played skee ball, and every other game in that place, and then we found the hit of the day... the simulator ride thing. Haha!! I don't remember what it was called... but it was a reclined seat that you sat in, and then there was a movie screen in front of you. There were three different simulations: A roller coaster ride, a jet pack ride, and a trip through a cave. We sat all three boys in this seat and they fit perfectly. The seat moves up and down and shakes and makes you feel like you are in the movie. It was so cute and the boys all loved it. They did each one 3 times!!

Next we headed next door to K-mart to return a few gifts Matt's mom had gotten for Kaleb that he already had. We bought him his present while we were there. He picked out the alien creation chamber. It is a Ben 10 toy... his current obsession. We came home and played with that for about an hour and then headed to Lindsey and Bobby's house for a birthday party!

Kaleb LOVES Jakob and Aiden so we had to celebrate with them! We had hot dogs and Mac n' cheese... the perfect birthday dinner for any 4 year old! (Thanks for cooking Lindsey!) The boys played outside in their Star Wars masks and had a great time! Then we had cake and Kaleb opened a gift from the Kimery's... a solar system floor puzzle. Kaleb absolutely loves all things space and puzzles... so needless to say he loves it! Here are some pictures from our night.

The best of friends!! Kaleb & Jakob.

Kaleb's funny smile!

The clone troopers! SO cute!

Karson wanted to pose!! I will show you what the background was for in a different post!!

Kaleb is getting so big. I can't believe that he is already 4 years old. Time has flown by. He has grown to be such a sweet boy. He is the biggest mamma's boy out of all of my boys. He is emotional but also so tough! He love space and everything that goes along with it... astronauts, aliens, rockets, the solar system. He can name all of his planets, point them out on a picture of the solar system, and tell you facts about them! It is his passion. He also loves playing with his brothers and friends, going to the zoo, watching movies (with popcorn of course), and just hanging out around the house. He LOVES his mommy and daddy and is constantly talking our ears off!! He has the biggest imagination and is always coming up with new ideas. He HATES red sauce... spaghetti, ketchup, pizza... will NOT eat it! He loves noddles with butter, sweets, veggies, and cereal. He could live off of those things alone. He is the best son I could ever ask for. There is no doubt in my mind that he loves me and that is an amazing feeling. I can't wait to see what this next year holds for him. It will be an exciting one because he will be starting preschool. I will also get to see him with his new baby sister (who he can't wait to meet).

I love you Kaleb with all of my heart. Thanks for being you... and my little buddy!

I thought it would be fun to share pictures of him and his cakes on each of his birthdays so far.

Here he is on his 1st birthday with his baseball cake. He had a sports themed party. Look at that chub!!

Here is his 2nd birthday. We celebrated at Chuck E. Cheese. He had a dinosaur themed party.

This is his 3rd birthday. It was Cars themed. He used to watch that movie about 20 times a day!!

And here is his 4th!! There will be more pictures from his "big" party on Sunday... but here is his real birthday.

Have a great day!
