After taking Finn to Urgent Care Wednesday night (to make sure he didn't have pneumonia, which he didn't!) and having ECFE class Thursday night, I took Friday off and was finally able to help getting ready for Finn's 4th birthday party, which was on Saturday. There was a LOT to do on Friday and Saturday AM. After a little misunderstanding about WHEN she was coming, my mom was able to come Friday night and helped a TON on Saturday. I don't think we would have been ready for company if she hadn't come. Thank you so much, mom!
Alas, by 4pm Saturday afternoon, we were all set for Finn's party! Since the plague seems to be going around, several people weren't able to come, which was sad, but Finn had plenty of people here to help him celebrate. He had a blast! We had a lot of kids, but thanks to the basement, they were able to play and wear off some energy.
I finished Finn's cake at 12:11am Saturday morning. Honestly, it wasn't THAT hard! I usually obsess about it and agonize over the details, but I had a very clear idea of what I wanted on the cake and it came together really well. I will admit, that it is a bit overboard in regards to the party theme (construction), but Finn absolutely LOVED it and kept wanting to look at it in the frig before the party!
Overall, a super fun party was had (I think by all). Finn had (almost) everybody he loves the most in the world under one roof and felt super special. Thank you to everybody who came and we are sad for those who weren't able. Hopefully the pics help you feel like you were there!
At 6:30, Finn's party officially ended by me putting my Vikings jersey on and attempting to watch some pre-game. The Vikings game was lack luster at best, but didn't put a damper on Finn's excitement about his birthday.
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
