They say it's your birthday....





Happy Birthday Camren!!! Cam turned 4 years old yesterday! I can't believe how the time flies by! The day started out by us all going out to his cousin Paul's baptism. I love that my boys have these older cousins that are such good examples to them. I know that Jaden in particular looks up to Paul & so for both him & Cam to be there to see him be baptized was awesome! From there we went to Toys R' Us & let Camren pick out any toy in the store for his birthday (well within' reason, & by reason I mean budget, you'll know why I say this in un momento). He kept picking out things & so we'd put it in the cart & then he'd find something else & if in his mind it triumphant ed over the other toy already in the cart, we'd swap out. Well do you think in any of the swaps that there was ever a boy toy even in question? No, there was not, not even a gender neutral toy. Just Fairy Wings, Crowns, Tea Sets etc... You get the point. He finally decided on a Disney Princess Guitar that plays "Be our Guest" from Beauty & the Beast. It was a good purchase though, it has already gotten a lot of use out of it already, namely from Cam & Kyra dancing around like ballerina's to the music- they love it!!! Then from the good old T.R.U. we headed on up to Chuck-E-Cheeses, you know, where a kid can be a kid! Anytime we asked Camren what he wanted to do for his b-day, he'd always say that Chuck-E-Cheese would be the place that he would be celebrating & no where else. He had a BLAST! Between pizza, rides, games, cake & actually getting to meet "the cheese" himself, he was in 4 year old heaven!Oh & after all of those games that give you tickets, he takes up his little receipt that says he has 60 points on it & looks up at the girl & says "I want those pretty sparkly earrings" Mind you, they were worth 80 points & he was 20 points short, but she must have thought that it was so cute that this little boy wanted "sparkly earrings", that she says "What color would you like?" In Cam's most excited voice he squeals "PINK!" So, in the bottom picture you can see him wearing his prize, what a perfect way for him to end off his day!

Yea! Blog pals! Glad you found me. :) Now that I know you're a Twilighter- I'll have to add you to my Twilight Tuesday emailer. HA! I know- I'm dumb. Oh well- like you said: sometimes it's worth getting wrapped up in something else to forget about our own lives for a bit. :)
