Happy Happy 4th Birthday Colin and a Wonderful Easter


HAPPY HAPPY 4th Birthday to our dear, sweet, brave, spirited son Colin! We love you so much and are so proud of all you have endured in your short time. Your love of life and energy amazes me everyday. You are smart, loving, stubborn, energetic, high spirited, and a little bit of a stinker. It has been a rough start to life and the journey has had it's ups and downs, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. You have taught us so much about the REAL meaning of family and what happiness is really about.

Colin had a Batman party this year. We had 19 kids running around the house, a moonwalk, and we boiled 55 pounds of crawfish and 7 pounds of shrimp. The first guest to arrive was at 1:00pm and the last to leave at 8:30pm, yep it was that good of a party. Colin had a blast playing with all his friends and of course the presents and cake. He must have bounced and went down that slide for 5 hours, we went down it so much, he got a blister on his toe! : ) It was beautiful weather, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the birthday of this amazing boy!! 
Excited about blowing out the candle!!!
I could do this all day!!
and down he goes!

Colin finally got his hockey game he has been waiting for!!

So trying to play catch up, I am throwing in Easter into this post as well. We had a great Easter. Good Friday we took the kids to the Natural Science museum with my brother and his family. Afterwards we went to Matt's parents house for a little Easter egg hunt and so the kids could get their Easter baskets. Sunday the Easter bunny visited us and we hunted eggs and got goodies in our baskets. Then we went to my brothers for Easter day lunch.
