Happy Birthday A-Team!

Happy happy happy birthday my four year olds!!! I know I say this every year but where in the world has the time gone?!?

To start off the day right, you had birthday muffins! I think you are both very, very excited to be four because that brings you one step closer to five (the age that I said no longer napping is acceptable). 

This picture is pretty typical. It captured the essence of "you" perfectly! Addie is decked in her girlie gear and Austin is being all boy.

Austin, your mind amazes me. You ask so many questions about what and why and seem to soak up the world around you. You have a huge, contagious smile and like making people laugh. I love that heart! You are extremely rough and tumble and like to wrestle but if there is a baby around, you are sweetly tickling their feet. You can be the kindest, most thoughtful little man but on the flip side, you have a defiant streak that may be the death of me! But I love you anyway!

Addison, you have assumed your role as family princess 110%. You are in a phase of always wearing a headband, dress and jewelry that may or may not match. You have an incredible imagination that amazes me. You like to play restaurant and will pretend to make me one of your three specialties (chicken nuggets, milkshake or pizza). You are so sweet to those around you. But you have started displaying a stubborn side more and more often. Word of advice - I'll always out stubborn you - I've been at it for over 30 years!

We went to Blue Goose for dinner to celebrate - their fave restaurant. Then we followed it up with cake at home.

We love you Austin and Addie and so excited to see what the 4s bring us!
