Happy 4th Birthday Nico!

This past Thursday Nicholas turned 4 years old! I can't believe he is getting so big. He was so excited all week for his pirate party. At pre-school he got to bring the cookies he decorated for snack time. Then he went to lunch with his Grandpa and Nana.

Everyone had pirate bandannas and eye patches so we could all play pirates. We had musical chairs to the "Pirate's Life for Me" song, then had a sword fight with long pretzels and fished for pretzels with a pirate hook.
Then we played pin the parrot on the pirate. Carlos drew this pirate free hand- great job Amor!
Finally we had a treasure hunt and filled our candy bags even more with the pinata.

We love you Nicholas and are so glad for all the joy and excitement you bring to our family!

Thanks for putting a picture of the cake on your blog. My boys told me all about it and I was sad that I didn't see it. Sorry Joey won too many games. They loved the party. Thanks! Who knew Carlos was such an artist.
