Today was Jacob and Samuel's 4th Birthday. We started off the day with some pancakes that spelled out their names per their request.
I spent a good portion of yesterday making them this lightning McQueen Birthday Cake that they asked for months ago, so I went with the theme and got a tablecloth, plates and wrapping paper all in the lightning McQueen theme.
I have been really hesitant about getting the boys little legos because of all the small pieces and because I don't know if they are really old enough to build with them without me having to do most of the building. However we relented and gave Sam a small set of legos that he can build two cars and a gas station with, we will see how this goes. Alan was really excited because he loves legos and so he had no problem helping Sam figure out how to build them.
The boys got a ton of presents.
And this fun talking card from our friends Hallie and Jason, Sam was leary of it at first but by the end of the night we had to put a ban on opening the card because he kept opening it to listen to the message.

We got a knock at the door right before bedtime and there was a package from their Moma and Papa, Alan started in on building the castle they got from them and they were so excited about it that it took a lot longer to get them to bed than usual. Alan is now at work putting it together so that they can play with it tomorrow. He is such a great dad!
We love our little boys and are happy they had such a great day!
