John’s birthday

Thursday was John’s 4th birthday. Sadly, the old cliché that they grow up too fast is all too true.

These are some of his birthday portraits:

John’s main present from us was an astronaut costume because he loves dressing up more than anything else. He also got a construction-worker vest, a pair of PJs I sewed for him from fabric that he had picked out, and a small game. In addition, he got tons of presents from relatives and people at our church, all of which he loved. For his special breakfast, John requested “palacsinta”, a Hungarian specialty similar to crepes.

We did not have a party for John because we were going to take him on a trip to Legoland for his birthday instead. We ended up having to put that off until January, but by then it was too late to plan a party for him. As always when one of the kids has a birthday, I gave them the day off from school work. We went to a little play town in the morning, and in the evening we went to Family Fun Night at Chick-fil-A.



  1. What great pictures. Looks like everyone had a wonderful time. I love all there costumes. It shows they have a great imagination.

  2. Now that is just too cute…I think the annual bday photos is a great idea…

    I’m sure I’ll do something similar when I have children.

    I am also a huge fan of Chik-Fil-A and their Cow mascot..haha…”Eat Mor Chikin!” LOL!

  3. I know whenever I write I must seem like a big critic, but I have to say that all of you’re sons are very handsome young men, they look just like their dad. You’re daughter’s are beutiful too.

    You are going to have a family of heartbrakers when they grow up!

  4. yes zsuzsanna is a Hungarian name al right:) I’m Hungarian as well and my kids LOVE palacsinta!!

  5. Thank you for all the compliments.

    Tereza, I had no idea you were Hungarian! Do you speak the language? Have you ever been to Hungary? Do you follow a recipe when you make palacsinta? My mother taught me how to make them “by feeling”, so I don’t have a recipe to pass on to people who ask me for one.

  6. All the kids costumes are really cool and I think its great they enjoy them so much.

    Thank you for sharing the link to that costume site. We love “cowboy” themed infant clothing and we’ve bought a ton of it for our son. We’ll have to get one of those Jr. Cowboy costumes for him to wear one day!
