Before I begin the posts on the kids' birthdays and their party I figured I get Nate in here. He may or may not feel left out at times since his birthday is only 4 days before Layla's. The Sunday before Nate's birthday we had a little celebration. The kids helped me buy an ice cream cake for Nate (his favorite!). I told the kids to keep it a secret so we could surprise Nate and I think we succeeded. He wasn't expecting anything before his birthday. On his actual birthday, Malakai had a tantrum because he thought the gifts for Nate were really for him. He was not about to give up the gift and hand it to Nate.
