CAUTION! Colson's Construction Birthday Party!

So I am a little late in posting about Colson's 4th birthday party but better late than never, right!? And these photos are all from my phone because I have yet to upload the photos from my camera. :o/


Colson wanted a construction themed birthday party so we ran with that idea. 

I made some construction signs.

And we brought out Colson's fleet of construction trucks to decorate the party.

For food we did a 'construct' your own nacho bar and boy was it a hit!! Everyone loved it!!

And Colson was absolutely in love with his cake! :o)

He got more toys than we currently have room for but they were all pretty awesome toys! He was very excited! :oP 

He had a great time and we are so blessed to have such awesome family and friends!!


At 4:16 today our little man turned 4 years old!

4 years ago we headed to the hospital one day before my scheduled induction, to avoid an impending snow storm. We ended up getting 2 feet of snow. Anyone remember 'snowmagedon'?

4 years later, we celebrate Colson's birthday with another snow storm. A storm so bad we had to cancel our plans of taking the kids to see Frozen On Ice. A snow storm so bad that they issued a blizzard warning. 

We were bummed about not being able to go see frozen, but we still had fun. We bundled up and headed outside before the winds got too bad. 

We made a snowman.

We also had cake and opened a few presents.

I think he had a pretty good birthday and wasn't too disappointed!

It's still hard to believe he is just sounds so old. 

It seems just like yesterday that I headed to the hospital to meet our little man and now, here he is... A 4 year old who loves teenage mutant Ninja turtles, anything car related, and the color blue! He can spell and write his name, is super excited to start school in the fall, and is just now rocking 3t clothes. 

Time flies way too fast and I realize I say that with all of my kid's birthday...but it really does. And it's not fair!

Happy 4th birthday, sweet boy! You are our little man and we love you more than you will ever know! We can't wait to celebrate again next weekend at your big construction birthday party! :o)
