My Baby Is 4!

It seems like yesterday, that we brought little Wyatt home from the hospital, and now he is 4 years old. I can't believe that my baby is 4. Wyatt is such a blessing to have in our home. He is a very kind and sweet boy. Just to show how sweet he is, last night we went to the mall playground, where they have all sorts of things to climb and play on. We noticed Wyatt pulling on this little boys arms, and thought that they were arguing over the toy. When Jimmy went over, he realized that the little boy couldn't get up on the block, and Wyatt was trying to help him up. I was very proud.
I asked him a few months ago, what he wanted to do for his birthday party. Last year we had it at Mcdonalds, and I thought he would say that or Chucky Cheese, but he said "I want to have it at our house, and I want a dinosaur party". I had so much fun putting it together. We played Pin The Tail On the Dinosaur, Musical Dinosaurs, had a dinosaur pinata, and the hit of the party were these fossils that we made. I found a recipie online for fossils, and I got these dinosaur skeletons. I put the dough on the outside and let them dry. We gave each kid a tool and paintbrush, and told them that they were paleontologists, and they got to break the fossil away and take home the little skeletons. Then Wyatt helped me make paper mache ballons that we painted like eggs, and put little dinosaur toys in for their goodie bags. I even attempted to make a dinosaur cake. It turned out better than I thought it would. Overall the day was a success. Happy birthday little buddy!!!

Halloween was so much fun. Wyatt told me that this year he wanted to be a shark or a whale. I looked and looked and finally found this shark costume. He was so excited and told everybody he was a great white shark. I was a little worried that McKartnee would not wear the princess costume. My friend gave me this cute little dress, so I just got the fairy wings, and the tiarra, but every time that I tried the dress on her, she would say "NO, off off, no pretty princess" I had Wyatt's old tiger costume for back up, but when she saw Wyatt and Walker dressed up, she was ok with wearing it. I thought Walker's little lion costume was too cute. The kids had alot of fun, and got TONS of candy. I will probably end up throwing half of it away. With a church party, Wyatt's school party, and then trick or treating we got more than our share.
