Happy Birthday!

It's my Little A.'s birthday! Four years ago, last night, we sped through a torrential downpour to the hospital. A fast and easy delivery, he was! Little A. is our "lolly-gagger", marches to the beat of his own drum, enjoys talking baby talk (much to my chagrin), loves chocolate (that's my boy!), runs/walks/jumps like he has springs in his feet, has an "old soul", is named after two great presidents, is a daddy's boy through and through. He hates nap time and black olives, spoke like a Philadelphia lawyer well before he was 2, adores his biggest brother, tolerates his bigger brother, his sisters adore him, and we think he's the cat's meow!! He's awesome, he is!

One of his gifts was a baseball set, thought he'd love it 'cuz Big A.'s a baseball player, and all...turns out, not so much!

We were playing a rousing game of baseball outside, complete with ghost runners and dodge ball like outs, while the birthday boy sat on the steps watching. We coaxed him out to play, he hit one ball and stated, "I hate this game."

Then promptly went inside and got his toy shotgun.

Huh, guess we should've gone with the "scooter, like in 'Bolt'" you think he knows that scooters don't come with a dog you can say "Zoom-Zoom" to, and then take off flying through the streets with the dog leading?

Um, yeah...pretty much sure that's why he wanted it!

Happy Birthday, dear boy!! We love you!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!
