The Boy is Four Years Old

It's almost mind-boggling to me that my youngest grandchild is four years old today. To commemorate the event, I put together a collage of JJ at various ages with the two current ones being in the centre. They were taken on "Wild Hair Day" for storytime at the library. The one on the centre-right is after his accessories were removed.


In fact I used that same picture for the front of his homemade birthday card. We usually do homemade cards around here. It's a practice that I somtimes regret starting.

We had his main celebration yesterday, beginning with a party at our tiny town bowling lanes.


We then adjourned home where present were opened and cake was eaten and where funny hats were sometimes worn, even by the cat.


Since today is really his birthday, we'll have another wee celebration at suppertime.

Oh, my.
There is no more convincing evidence that TIME FLIES than seeing these pics, and knowing that this boy who I have "seen" from birth is now four!
Happy birthday to him.
He is a gift to you and Cuppa!
And you are the best sort of grandparents.

Let he add my Happy Birthday to the four year old young man. The bowling looks fun. I wonder if your American readers wondered about the small five pin ball.

Best birthday wishes to Jonathan from a fellow Aquarian who celebrated on Feb 3. And, I like your tradition of homemade cards, John.

Happy birthday to your little sweetie. For the first time, I see a striking resemblance to his sister in the crazy hair day photo. I don't think it's only the glitzy stuff in his hair. ;)

Happy Birthday to him! What a cutie!

Time flies, John. I can't believe Brandon will be turning 18 in May and graduating in September. Enjoy them while they're young.

Blessings,
Mary

I agree, time flies. I have another blog friend who's grandson was a toddler when we met and just turned eight. It's hard to believe at times.
All of your photos and homemade card rally capture the fun! Happy Birthday to J.J.!! Love Di ♥
