Preston's Birthday (with pics)

Monday, September 10, 2012

It's official, Preston is 4 now! He had a wonderful day! Despite the super rainy day, there was nothing gloomy about it! Only one little "hiccup". Daddy and I got Preston the grill he's been dreaming of (much better than the shoebox one I built a few months back!). We knew he'd be anxious to play with it, so daddy put it together ahead of time. For the element of surprise, we wrapped the box it came in, and hid the grill in our room.
Well, about 15 minutes before his party, he went in our room (not even sure why he went in there) and found it! He came out, very calm, and said "Hey, I found my grill in your room." It was almost like he was asking a, "why is that in there?". Oh well, right?!

Here's some pictures of the day!
OK, first, the cake. Let me explain. Preston loves everything that has wheels. The grounds people in our complex drive around a "buggie" (it's a mule) and Preston is quite fond of it. They have let him sit in the drivers seat and pretend drive before.
So when we were looking through the cake "book" at the bakery, Preston found this cake and fell in love, because he wanted the golf cart.

Here is daddy reading a card to him...

Opening some presents...

Cooking on the grill...

All and all, it was a great day. Thanks to everyone who sent Preston birthday goodies, I showed him them all!
Next up, Emily's sweet 16, YIKES!

    He's soooo cute! Adorable! I bet he loved his new grill, even though mommy's creativity burst had worked just fine from what I can remember!
So Emily's sweet 16 is coming up... See? One day, they're 4 and they want a golf cart on their cake and then you blink and they're teenagers!!! Where does the time go?
My best wishes for Preston. May he always be as happy as on this day!

    What a cutie! Turn around and he will be 16...don't blink!

We leave on Friday to travel to Kansas for our DGD's 16th BD.
Hard to believe she is 16. Times just flies.

Take care and wish Preston a Happy BD.

    Preston is so cute! He is enamored with the oddest of things, which is just so adorable! But then again, I always had a fondness for little boys (especially over girls who were school aged).

I am glad he had a great birthday, and that you're little hiccup was very very small!

Eeek, on the Sweet Sixteen thing. I don't really remember any of my birthday's, except for my 21st, when I was really sick, but my friends still forced me to go out! It was good, but gosh I wish I could have stayed home!

Hope this week is a good one, and sorry to hear about your Steelers! Good luck next weekend!
