Austin's Birthday


Our little boy is growing up so quickly! Austin turned 3 on November 29th. It was so much fun to see him get excited about planning his birthday and he definitely had an opinion on what he wanted. When asked what kind of cake he wanted, "A dinosaur cake!" What should we have for your birthday dinner? "Spaghetti!" What would you like to do on your birthday? "Watch Mimi play basketball and see the dinosaurs!" Easy enough, I thought! After having family to Thanksgiving dinner at our home on Thursday I thought this would be simple. We would take Austin and his cousin Stockton to the Dinosaur Museum, then meet family at Spaghetti Factory for dinner with a dinosaur cake in tow baked by our local Harmons and then off to watch Mindy (aka Mimi) and the BYU girls basketball team play SUU at the Marriott Center.
Austin brings a lot of fun and energy to our family. He thinks that a game of chase should prelude any change of clothing or getting dressed period! He loves to make us laugh and that was evident even as a baby! He loves sports and is content to play basketball in the backyard alone for hours. He is very sweet to his little sister and tells me daily, "Baby Camryn is so cute!" He enjoys playing with Sydney and will even dress up as a prince when asked. Austin is definitely a mama's boy which was very evident when we went around the table at Thanksgiving, he stood up and said, "I am thankful for my mommy!" And yes, he melted his mom's heart right then and there! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUSTIN, WE LOVE YOU!!

Good thing he is so dang cute and sweet - that probably saved his life a few times with some of the crazy things he has done during his short life!

I learned in my last visit to your house what a great sense of humor Austin has, he made us laugh so often! Well, I should say, except for when he is in a Tigger costume, I don't think he found any humor in Halloween this year but seemed to anjoy his birthday so much more. Glad we got to share in a some of the celebrations, we love you Austin.

On another note have you noticed in your family picture at the top of your blog home page - you and Sydney are standing the exact same - the same little bend in your left legs ... cute!!
