Sunshine Sunday - the 4th and my birthday boy

This week it was nice to have a little break with the 4th.  They do a parade and a little carnival in our neck of the woods.  Rex got to ride on the train and get his face painted.  I am grateful for the great privilege it is to live in a free country (and also thankful for a day off to celebrate it). 


My little Rex turned four this week.  It's hard to believe he's already four.  We didn't have a party, but we had dinner with my family the other night and my sister's kids all made decorations in Rex's honor.  It was adorable.





They even made him a party hat, but it was a little bit big so my husband wore it instead.  It was snug, but very stylish :)


Want to see my crafty birthday cake?  I bought a cake from Costco and stuck some figurines on top of it.  He was ecstatic.


My little baby is growing up.


He's no longer napping.  He's picking up on way too much from conversations.  He's teaching his brother a lot (some good and some bad).  He's learned how to smooth talk.  He's got amazing climbing skills.  He has hilarious dance moves.  Best of all....he's all ours.  I'm so thankful for all he's brought into our lives.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Wow!! Happy birthday Rex for the big Four!

    I think I have mentioned previously, my four year old may be a long-lost twin of Rex's as they share that part of their DNA that dictates a passion for all things Super Hero.

    Happy days!!!

  2. Happy Birthday Rex!

    That is the cutest birthday party I have ever seen. What sweet and thoughtful cousins Rex has.

    I'm still amazed at how fast they grow up.

  8. Happy birthday Rex, from what your mother "tells" me, your one cool and nice kid, I'm sure your friends love to play with you. Tone, from Norway (mommy will tell you where Norway is - kind of far from you)

  10. Happy birthday! Looks like lots of fun. That's actually how we've done my sons's last two cakes! He is a lego head, so we order a cake shaped like, e.g., a castle, and then he and his dad create lego scenes all over it. The kids all love it -- we plan to do it every year!

  12. Thank you for being such a down to earth momma. So many moms worry about having all sorts of things for a little ones birthday party but they forget how simple children are. My daughter is thrilled to play with boxes and I encourage it because the use of their imagination is so important.

    Thanks.

  13. The Costco cake is the most delicious chocolate cake ever. Makes me sad we have a Sam's Club membership instead of a Costco one

  15. Love the decorations! :)
    Happy birthday to Rex!!!!

    I totally thought of him this morning when I saw an ad for goggles. The kid in the ad was cute the way that kids are cute, but I couldn't help but think that Rex is way cuter!

  17. Today I think you are my best friend b/c my oldest daughter just turned 4 on the 6th. That means that we became mommies at the same time. :)

  18. Was the party at your house? I ask because in the 2nd photo of the party decorations there is a piece of a super cute curtain showing. I would love to see more!

  19. Benjamin's Mama - No, the party wasn't at my house, but my sister just bought that fabric at JoAnn's. It's back by the designer home fabrics. It's a bit pricey, to print off a coupon if you want to buy it. Good luck!
