Four Years Old Today

Today Finn is four years old.  As he was coming down the stairs I said, "Happy Birthday Finn!"  He responds, "Happy Birthday Mom."  He told me Happy Birthday because my birthday was coming soon.

As a special treat Michael took Finn to school today.  First they stopped at the donut place to get a "birthday donut."  He also got donuts for his class.  When I asked Finn if he wanted to bring cupcakes for his birthday he said "YES!"  Then he said that he would rather bring "birthday donuts."  So he and Michael picked out chocolate and vanilla sprinkled donuts and glazed donuts (plain donuts).

Midday I got a notice on Facebook from Finn's teacher.  She posts pictures throughout the day and posted the following pictures.

Happy Birthday Finn!

Finn told that he ate a plain donut because he gave all the sprinkle donuts to his friends (Finn passed out all of the donuts).  He then said, "that was very kind of me, wasn't it?

After school Finn asked me if he could watch Godzilla.  I turned it on and we watched until Daddy and Sam got home.  When Sam walked in he started yelling "zooki."  He was so excited that Godzilla was on - he seems to love it as much as Finn does. 

For his birthday supper we had hotdogs, Cheetos, cake and ice cream.  Finn was very polite all throughout dinner.  While serving the cake and ice cream Finn asked us to sing "Happy Birthday" to him.  We did.  Sam also sang to Finn - but he sang "Happy Day to you."





Then it was time to open the rest of his presents from us.  He got a hero sword, a Captain America shield, a Ninja Turtle Leonardo sword and chap stick.  Finn loves Chap Stick.  After opening his presents Finn thanked us profusely and tried out all of his weapons.









Finn's love of weapons has worn off on Sam.  Sam will pretend any item in a sword.  He also asks for "weapons" on a daily basis.

Before bed the boys watched an episode of Godzilla. Happy Birthday Finn.  We love you!

Manhandled

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.


Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 


Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.






We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.


They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.


One of my favorites!



Another favorite.




And . . . another favorite.









They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.



It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
