Happy Birthday Carter

I can't believe my little guy is already 4 years old. The years have flown by!

Carter had a great day! We invited a few friends from church and a bunch of neighborhood kids over and had what we called a “play party”. No games, no gifts- just good old fashion play time! After an hour or so we had sang Happy Birthday, ate birthday cake and soon after everyone went home. It was great! Carter’s cake was a green frosted #4, with some of his favorite candy making it into a race track (Carter loves green and the movie Cars). Our good friend Perry was in town and joined us for dinner. After which I put Tay to bed and Carter opened his gifts. He had been patient all day but could no longer contain his excitement!

Carter is such a good little guy. We had such a tough time with him over the summer and first part of the fall. I guess he was trying to spread his wings a little. I think preschool has helped him simmer down quite a bit. At times he can be pretty naughty (he is a little boy after all) but overall, he is very very sweet. I love Carter’s laugh and that he laughs a lot. I love his smile and beautiful brown eyes. I love to listen to the funny things he says and to watch him be excited about the simple joys of life. The thought of Carter getting bigger makes me cry and smile at the same time. I am so grateful for him.

Carter’s favorite color is green, he loves to ride his bike, watch PBS kids, to “cook”, play with friends, go to the park, throw balls, and act silly. He is also a good big brother. He recently gave his little sister her first hair cut! Although Tay didn’t seem to mind, mommy wasn’t very happy about it! Here is a picture of Carter right before it was time to open presents. Can you feel his excitement? For more birthday pictures and a few others from November, go to http://picasaweb.google.com/birthworks.
