Happy bday, Happy Gus!

Gus is 4 today. Hudson remembered the big day. 
We had the annual fun Demko Christmas at Aunt Theresa's. Rosie and her fave guy. (Besides Dad!) 
Gus enjoys his cake. His gift was the Corey Crawford jersey which he is now sleeping in. He wouldn't take it off. 
We took Blaiser to Star Wars yesterday. It was such a well done movie. It was nice to get out with our big boy.

Was cute that Blaise kept his antlers on the whole time. Wondering if he will still wear them next year.

Rosie and "HoHo"

We attend a Thursday morning playgroup at a church in our neighborhood. This week they had their Christmas party, complete with Santa. Rosie wasn't buying it. 
But made a very swift recovery when it was cookie time.

Choo choo

Danny and Meghan gave Gus an amazing train set for his bday. Blaise set it up under the tree with a gift tunnel. :)
Rosie added a passenger to the train... Baby Jesus!


Gus had his fourth birthday party. It was a pizza/truck party. His favorite people were there. 
Jameson and Gus did not talk beforehand, but magically showed up in matching outfits. Ha!
He was so appreciative of this truck cake. 
Blaise made a play-doh pizza
Getting ready for guests to arrive

Happy bday Happy Gus!

Fri and Sat

Friday we partied hard, celebrating Rosie, Kate and Finley's birthdays with our block. Our babies are two! The party was lady bug themed. 
Saturday we went to a neighborhood Christmas celebration and saw Santa!
Rosie saw him and decided to move back. Blaise wanted a football mouth guard. Gus wanted a truck. Rosie wanted a toy piano. Tommy and I want a good night's sleep. :) 
Cookie decorating 
Rosie got Mrs Potato Head :)
Blaise put all of our shoes out for St Nick.  Next year there will be another pair. But pink or blue? Tommy and I think pink.  Hmmmm
