Birthday time!!

Caleb turned 4 on the July 3rd.!!! Where has time gone. Heis such a character all ready it is hard to believe that in the next year he will develop so much more into a little person. Caleb knows what he wants and is constantly testing the boundaries of life and the patientance of those around him!!!

WE celebrated his birthday in alien fashion. Caleb is known as the Alien drawer. HE has been creating aliens (very cute aliens I might add for almost two months now. They have changed little over time. They now have a body , in the beginning they just had arms legs eyes an occasionally nose always a mouth. Well Zach and I taped up all the good aliens all over the kitchen. They are every where.My favorites are the alien jumping in a mud puddle, the alien where Caleb discovered he could write his name and the alien that Caleb asked “what else does he need?” I thought he could use some ears or hair at which point Caleb looked up and said “No HE needs buffalo horns” and that is just what he got!

When everone got up from nap, it was time to party! All six of us sat around the table making Alien puppets. We used the old brown paper bags and various other scraps of yarn,felt ,paper and markers. I think the older people may have had more fun at this game.

When the puppets were all finished we had the requested pizza from the birthday boy! Who I might add actually ate the pizza! Then we moved on to presents! We gave Caleb his present from Gramma and Grampa first. We placed it in front of him . The box was very large compared to Caleb! he just grinned at it. Then he sat looking around. and he sat some more, and everyone is saying open it its yours. Finally Kyle reached over and started to rip the paper for him and then he got the idea and pulled the paper off piece by piece. He gets the box open and starts to smile and instead of reaching for the cool school computer he pulls out the packing peanuts ! OH well! (He now loves the computer and would like to be using it all the time!)
