Aaron turned four years old on Saturday. The first thing in the morning, he came into our room and said, “Daddy, Mommy, I’m four today but my pajamas still fit!” We think he was under the impression that as soon as he turned four he would suddenly shoot up. That was a great way to start the day.
After breakfast, we brought out the presents from Poppa and Gigi (Betsy’s parents). Aaron’s favorite was Annie and Clarabelle from the Thomas and Friends train set. He ran over and attached them to one of his Thomas trains as soon as we got them opened. “Thank you, Poppa and Gigi!!”
Things settled down a bit after this. Aaron went down for a rest while Mommy and Daddy began to set up for Aaron’s big party. We had invited many friends, Mommy had baked a cake, and Aaron had picked out party favors with Mommy at the store. Lots of good friends came and celebrated with us!
To the right is a picture of Aaron with the crown he picked out for himself.
All of our friends brought gifts. Aaron could hardly wait until we said it was time to open all those wonderful packages. The boy in the background of the picture below is one of Aaron’s good friends, the son of some staff members at ICS.
Daddy enjoyed the gifts too. Aaron ran to him each time he needed to get into a new box. This one is a new remote controlled race car that blinks and makes great racing sounds!
In short, we all had a wonderful day. Aaron is so happy to tell people that he is four now. What a blessing!
