Simeon has been patiently waiting for his birthday. That's what you get when your birthday is 4 days after your mom's. When it finally arrived he really milked it. We opened presents early in the morning with some blueberry pancakes and eggs. He carefully peeled each piece of tape off, so as to not rip the paper. The breakfast was getting so cold that I finally had to ask him to just rip the paper, even then it was precise.
Then it was off to school and work with Reuben and Daddy... and Simeon and I. We went to the children's museum to teach our music class. I had the class sing happy birthday, Simeon ate it up. He told everyone who looked at him that he was four, and it was his birthday today.
We then went to a special birthday lunch date. I asked him where he wanted to go, he was addemently requested Wendy's. I tried to sway him, but Wendy's kids meals get a frosty, and a toy. And none of the other places do that, not even chick-fil-a.
Then it was off for a hair cut. He loved being treated royally, in an airplane barber chair, watching a tv, and having someone other than mom spraying water on his hair.
This child is amazing. He is caring, funny, sweet, aware, smart, and entertaining. He is my angel baby, and I can't believe he is four! He is resilient. He is wise. He still calms down as soon as I start singing "Angel's watching over me."

Growing up (after we moved to Minnesota) I saw my grandparents once a year, except for a few years where I saw them one or two extra times. But I loved them, even if I was mildly afraid of Grandma Camie. My kids have somehow managed to see their grandparent more often because of the many trips both sets make to Utah. We made our annual trip to Minnesota, had a wonderful time there, and when it came time to leave--the boys, especially Simeon, were obviously sad that we were leaving. The consolation from grandma was that they would come to Utah to help send Courtlin off on her mission. The whole drive home Simeon would ask what day it was, and how many days until Grandma and Grandpa would be at our house.

Reuben and Alena didn't miss a beat and were fast friends. Reasor was busy running. And Simeon found a little admirer in Elsie, who followed him around and took the toy he was holding. Simeon would just look at her for a while and then find a different toy. He ended up wanting to hug her and give her things to play with.
