Happy Birthday Nathan!

Today we celebrated Nathan's 6th birthday. He got to celebrate the big day at Grandma Sandy's house with his cousins, which made the day pretty special. When he woke up this morning, Grandma Sandy made Nathan snowmen pancakes. He had asked for a snowman cake, so we also made that today. Tonight, Uncle Steve, Aunt Rachel and all the cousins came over for supper, cake and ice cream, and to watch Nathan open his presents.

The whole day would have gone off without a hitch, except Nathan happened to fall headfirst down the stairs that go to the basement. He ended up with a bump on his forehead, a rug burn above his upper lip, a bloody lip and what will probably be a black eye in the next few days. That put a small damper on the day, but he recovered quickly and the birthday ended well.

Here are some pictures from his big day:

his picture taken because of his injuries.

This picture really doesn't show his injuries very well. They are much more
pitiful to see in person, but you can get the gist of the swollen lip,
the rug burn and a little bit of the swelling under his eye.

Bless his precious little heart!
Hope the injuries heal quickly, and hope to see you all again soon.
Merry Christmas!

Poor baby. That just breaks your heart when they get hurt. He looks really sweet-rug burn and all. I love the snowman pancake and cake. Hope you're enjoying the New Year!!

I just love you!
