Henry is 4 years old!

First of all, this is Henry 4 years ago today. Isn't he so cute?

Today Henry has had a birthday extravaganza. We started off with lots of messy presents this morning (everything he got has a lot of little pieces - plus there were balloons all over the ground and so our house is now a disaster!).

Then he had school and then we had a few hours at home. Henry and Ella helped get cupcakes ready for Henry's party.

We had a little friend birthday party at the park in the late afternoon. They ate cupcakes and opened presents and played with a balloon launcher that the kids LOVED (although I took no pictures of that...).

Then we went to Chuck E Cheese's for dinner and Henry and Ella had so much fun playing with all the games (I took no pictures of that, either...).

THEN we had a yummy peanut butter and chocolate cake (from Target) here with Grandpa Jim, Gillian and Kevin and our friend, Cristina (and Grandma Carole - she's been staying with us as we wait for this stubborn baby that won't come out of me).

Wow - long day. I'm exhausted! But I think Henry enjoyed the day and the many festivities.
Happy Birthday to Henry!

Congratratulations on making it through the birthday! I know a thing or two about being REALLY pregnant on your other children's birthdays :) Not too fun for you I know. But it looks like you did a great job and Henry had a blast!
Happy Birthday Henry!
I hope that stubborn baby comes out of you soon, or that your doctor decides to help her out soon...we're thinking of you!
PS - Maggie is hoping for your baby to come too...she said, "I can't wait for Grandma to come back to see Kit Kat (our new cat). I told her she couldn't come back until you had your baby, so selfishly, she's wishing it will be soon!

Happy Birthday Henry! We are glad you had a great day. You must know that Matthew and Ryan miss you a lot. Just a few days ago they asked if they would be able to visit Henry's house when we finally bought our new home. We wish you guys could live down the street from us again!

I was so very sad that I missed his birthday. I had to stop by last night to give him a hug and have him show me his presents. What a haul! He seemed very happy with everything. Your mom sent me home with a nice piece of cake and Kaitlin and I split it - yum.!
I couldn't believe all the work you went to being so pregnant.
By the way, your house was really (!) clean and organized last night - the nesting instinct is there. That means this baby is about to pop! Hope you get plenty of rest today.
Glad Henry had a marvelous birthday!

Again I want to say, "Happy Birthday Henry"... I am so glad that I was able to spend your 4th birthday with you. How fun it was. And what a special, exciting 4 year old you are. I'm so glad you're my grandson!
I love you...Grandma Carole
