Zander Turns 4!!! Oh, and it's Father's Day

My kids decided that today would be a great day to adjust our sleep schedule. I had set my alarm for 9 am so we could get up and make Jack breakfast in bed, as is the tradition for Father's Day (I get the same on Mothers Day and it is great!). Zander had me up at 6:50 am. He is lucky it was his birthday or I might have been really unhappy with him!

Jack had a special request this year. He wanted pancakes with extra sugar and whipped cream so they tasted like sugar cookies. Oh, and he wanted hash browns with them. Heathly huh? Well, I had never made these particular pancakes before. They are Jack's thing. I don't tend to add sugar to anything. It took me over an hour to get 4 pancakes to actually turn out right. He loved them so I guess it was worth it.

We also celebrated Zander's Big #4. Here are some pictures:

And here is a pic of the sad little pirate ship cake I attempted. I am really not a talented cake person. =0) But Zand was happy so that is what matters.

It is sad to have your kids grow up. But at the same time, it is great to see the little people they are becoming. Zand is a little light in our lives with a smile that lights up his entire face. I am so glad that he is part of our family.

And, I am grateful for Jack too. I felt a little bad he had to share Father's Day with a birthday because Father's Day sort of took a back seat but he did get into the festivities:

He would totally kill me if he knew that I was putting that picture on here! Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!

Oh he is so cute (and I mean Jack with the bows on his head!). How sweet Zander is and how excited about that tool set from Home Depot. Happy Birthday little man!
