Happy 4th Birthday

Happy 4th Birthday Tank!!!

Another birthday today and Tank is excited. He has been counting down the days along with Pete and Re-Pete and was not too happy when their day came along on Monday and he had to wait two more. The "official" celebration will be next week but we are doing little things to make him feel special today. Each birthday child wakes up to ribbons hanging in their doorway and a special breakfast of their choosing. Tank wanted "sgetti" (spaghetti) but I reminded him that we only eat that for supper. So he chose apple cinnamon muffins (while George tried to convince him to choose chocolate chip). Unfortunately he couldn't see the apples so he wasn't happy about that. (I shredded the apples rather than diced them).We sang to him and had a candle on the muffin as well. Missy Blue seems to think she needs a candle also. I am thinking we will each make our own mini pizzas for supper. Tank also does not have any chores to do today but for some reason he really wanted to make his bed.

Tank has been dubbed "Captain Chaos" by his Grandpa and that fit him quite well but I have noticed that lately he isn't getting into trouble as often. He still has a stubborn streak but not to the extent that he was. Tank is still my very loveable little boy. If you would like to read more about my sweet boy click HERE.

Here are Tank's answers to my "interview":

What do you like to do for fun?

Tank: Play with Tinker Toys. Wrestle with Daddy

What do you like to eat?

Tank: bread and red peppers (they all like to eat the entire pepper, something they did on the farm)

Where is your favorite place to go?

Tank: To Wal-Mart where the movie cars are. (They all collect diecast cars from the Disney movie – Cars)

Happy Birthday to Tank!!!

He and my son (oldest son) would be such great friends. My son LOVES spaghetti- is his favorite meal (And almost always his birthday choice as well.) He also loves the Cars movie and collects the Cars.

Have a great week!

Do you have any pictures of his dad at that age? Tank especially reminds me of him at that age and I kept meaning to ask you if you've compared them. Happy Birthday to all three of the boys and I'm glad to hear Baby Boy is doing better!

Happy Birthday to Tank!

My youngest boy has started to mellow out, too.

I hope everyone is feeling better there now.

I was so sorry to read that your sweet baby was so sick, but very thankful God carried you all through that and on to happier times!

When I spent three nights in the hospital with Mary when she was 7 days old because of jaundice it was very lonely and difficult. I was thankful though that there was so much that they can do! Without those doctors I might not have any of my girls! They all nearly had to have transfusions! God is gracious!

Your family picture is wonderful! Can't wait to see it up on the header, but I will miss the one of the kids younger too!

You sure have your share of birthdays just after Christmas! I am so glad you were able to be home on their special days!

Talk to you soon! In Christ, Eva
