Happy Birthday Jordan!

Tuesday was Jordan's 4th birthday. He had been eagerly anticipating it for weeks. He was so excited he couldn't even wait until after breakfast to open his presents. He also got to move out of his toddler bed into a big kid bed.

Yesterday we had a party for him with some of his friends from Sunbeams and preschool. His favorite show right now is Sid the Science Kid on PBS (he loves it so much Santa brought him a magnifying glass so he could be just like Sid). So we had a science party - we used magnifying glasses to observe things, played What's That Smell, went on a texture hunt, made applesauce (and then ate it!), and estimated the number of plastic bugs in an estimation jar.

When I asked him last week what kind of cake he wanted he told me strawberry - strawberry cake, strawberry filling and strawberry frosting. Then I asked him what color he wanted his frosting to be. He looked at me funny and then said, "Mom, strawberrys are pink." Of course - what was I thinking? So that's what he got (under the pretty blue fondant of course).

On a side note: The other night (about 3:30 AM) Jordan wakes up and comes into our room. He tells Justin, "Dad I peed my jammies a little bit, but not my bed." Justin asks him how he managed to not pee his bed. Jordan immediately says, "Magic." He totally cracks me up sometimes!

Christmas 2008

I know it's a tad late, but Merry Christmas everyone! Here are some of the pics from our Christmas activities: Visiting Santa at the Cactus Garden - Josh was not happy about being put on Santa's lap.

Christmas Eve in new matching pajamas from Mamah and Popi.

Madison's favorite princess - Ariel. Thanks Granny!

Lots of new Kid K'nex - hours of fun for the kids (and parents)!

Isn't this the best way to open a present?

Bowling with Mamah and Popi and most of the aunts and uncles on New Years Eve! We had so much fun! Jordan insisted that stomping (see the picture in the top right-hand corner) makes your ball go faster, further and hit more pins... it was quite entertaining to watch.

Madison lost 2 teeth over Christmas break!
