Scotty's 4th birthday

It's a little late but here are pictures from Scotty's birthday party.  We had a fun birthday with him this year.  He really understood what was going on and was so excited for his birthday.  The day of his birthday we gave him his presents- a scooter, helmet and a tent.  We had his favorite for dinner- pasta with parmesan cheese and peas and then had brownies.  We were surprised to find out that we would be bringing Collin home the day of his party.  He thought that was a great birthday gift!  We rented a bounce house and the kids had a lot of fun.  It collapsed on one side once and there were some tears from kids and giggles from adults!
Scotty is a really great kid.  He is fun and funny- we have good times with him.  He is a really good big brother and is enjoying that role more everyday.  He's growing up so fast and we're amazed at how fast he is learning new things.  We are so blessed to be his parents.

He was so excited to open his presents as soon as he woke up!

You can't tell from this, but he was having a great time riding his scooter around the house.

Playing in the tent that Daddy gave him.

A star brownie for our little star.  He wore his helmet all day!

Here's the bounce house.  It was fun to see how excited Scotty was as they were inflating it.

Daddy made him a car hauler truck cake.  Miles is so talented!

Here's the bounce house falling over.  Hee hee!

He got lots of fun presents from his great family and friends.

We are still surviving!  Collin has been home for a couple of weeks and he is doing really well.  We are all adjusting well to having him home with us- except for the sleep deprivation, but that will pass!  Scotty and Grant have been cute with him.  Scotty loves to hold him and helps Mommy.  Grant likes to get up close to his face and look at him!  He also pats him and has held him and given him kisses.  This morning he brought his pacifier over and tried to put it in his mouth- it was very sweet.  We have been having some family members and friends come over to help me while Miles works since I can't lift Grant.  We are grateful for all those that have been helping us out.  I am also very grateful for Miles.  He has taken on everything and does so much.  He wants me to be able to rest as much as I can.  He's the best husband and father!  Collin is a cute, sweet baby.  He eats well and is becoming more alert.  He is a spitter too!  We have to carry around the burp cloth with us at all times or we'll be sorry!  We're so thankful that he is healthy and doing well.
We have updated our photo website- there is an album with pictures from Collin's birth and lots of other new pictures too.  Click here or on the link over on the side to see our cute, cute kids!
