Garrett's 4! {the final post}

Okay, so it's only taken me 2 weeks to get his birthday post{s} done and last night I finally managed to get the pictures off my camera.  Yay! 

So, last but not least, his actual birthday!  This is the first year he's really "gotten it" as far as birthdays go, but it was still a little confusing as to why we'd already had his party, but then were celebrating again.

But, he certainly felt like it was his special day!  Mostly because he, alone, got to choose the dinner menu.  Exciting stuff, people.  And what might a 4 year old choose for dinner?  Why fish sticks, mac & cheese, and green beans {okay, so that was my addition} of course!  The best part, however, was {naturally} dessert.

A little back story on this one . . .

We watch a lot of Sprout around here.  Even when we're not watching, the tv is usually on Sprout for a good portion of the day.  Leading up to Valentine's Day there was a commercial {that we saw 832 times a day} advertising chocolate covered strawberries.  Now, I don't know that my child has ever had a chocolate covered strawberry.  But he knew he wanted to have some.  Every freaking single time the commercial would come on, he would stop what he was doing, come find me, and inform me that "Maybe sometime we can get some of those!"  Every. Single. Time.  And I'm not exaggerating.

So, around rolls February 13th and the birthday boy gets to choose dinner.  Including dessert.  So . . . what does he choose?

Strawberries and chocolate, of course. 

And man, did he {and little brother} ever enjoy them!!

He had on the perfect shirt for the meal.

I don't even want to know how he ended up with chocolate on his elbow!

Not sure about this face!  Ha!

I hope he never grows a moustache.

It was much more fun to rub the chocolate on his lips than it was to actually bite the strawberry!

Sufficed to say, he was thrilled with his special birthday meal on his special birthday plate, but the highlight was definitely dessert.  He was quite excited to open his Peter Pan DVD from us and I'm sure he'll be thrilled when we go see The Fresh Beat Band at the end of March, but I honestly don't know if even that will compare to the thrill of the chocolate and strawberries.  I really hope he's always this easy to please!
