It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... Olaf?!? A very happy fourth birthday party. #kids #motherhood #family #birthdays

Nolan doesn't turn four until June 2nd BUT with Gram in-town (for Pixar's InsideOut wrap party), we just had to have his party early as having a family party is tradition in our family until the kids are in school and have friends to invite over.

Nolan is obsessed with Frozen (who's kid isn't?!?) so, we ordered him some Frozen-themed party supplies and Emily spent the day before decorating for him. Sweet, right?

To keep things as low-key and simple as possible, because our weekend was jam-packed, Gram and I made cupcakes and frosting. Emily decorated them with the blue sprinkles and Frozen-themed edible toppers I purchased. 

While Nolan was napping this afternoon, Gram and I wrapped up the decorating. Once he was awake, he started asking for "his Frozen birthday party". He couldn't get down the stairs fast enough! :)

The four foot Olaf balloon was instantly his favorite! He hugged him, slapped him, tossed him around and dragged him all over the backyard.

Then, it was cake time!

We lit the four candles on his cupcake but he refused to blow them out. So, Emily did it for him and he dug in.

Then, it was present time! The stuffed, talking Olaf was a big hit. He carried it around most of the afternoon, even while opening other gifts, laughing at it and repeating "silly, Olaf!".

 He eventually got around to his other gifts which included a soccer ball and goal,

 A Melissa & Doug set of build-able construction vehicles,

It apparently takes strong muscles to open all this gifts ;)

A talking Ironman action figure (purchased because he played with one that belonged to another little boy last summer on a lunch outing in Texas and spent days after talking about it),

And two new games: a Frozen matching game and a PawPatrol board game.

Having Gram here always makes birthdays extra special, we are so lucky she flies out as often as she does, never missing important milestones.

For me, it was Emily offering to help so much, from cupcake decorating to present-opening, that made this birthday so special for everyone.

Even though I had already changed into my pajamas (I can't be the only person who likes to put on their pajamas at 5:00pm... right?), I didn't let the day end before taking a few pictures with my "main man" on the day of his big fourth birthday party. Is that Olaf photo-bombing our family picture?!?

 What a great afternoon celebrating my "main man" turning another year older!
