Preston knew exactly which cake he wanted... A spider-man one... chocolate!
When we bought a few things for his birthday he saw these spiderman picks, and added cupcakes to the list of birthday cake wants. It's hard to say no to such a sweet request!
I love my sweet Preston!
Can you believe he's four?!?!
I'm going to cry... time is passing too quickly...
Opening presents. It's fun to buy him boys... because he actually plays with them
He's opening some accessories to his batman cave.
A few party games.
We had a very, very low key friend birthday party. It was perfect, we were both happy. Three friends (two were brothers), cake, a few games, an hour and a half.

His nose looks a little different because he fell at pre-school and scratched up his nose and upper lip. So sad! He doesn't usually get upset, but he carried on for so long, the mom finally called me. It scabbed over, it was pretty shallow, so it shouldn't scar. But every where we went people asked him what happened.
We rode bikes for doughnuts in the morning and came back for a little party. Preston's birthday fell on Memorial Day, so Doug was home, that was nice. After the party we asked him if he wanted to go see a movie, or get his build-a-bear... No, all he wanted to do, all he really really wanted to do was play the wii for a while. Such simple pleasures. It was his birthday, so we let him decide... and he was so happy!
We love our little Preston SO MUCH!
He really is such a delight to have in our home.
I don't know what we'd do with out his sweet, good natured, pure spirit.
He has such a good sense of humor.
He loves to play with his toys. Bad guys are his favorite subjects in the games he makes up. I always get to be the princess who needs saving. He loves scooby-doo (to watch) and batman (to play). He likes his characters to fight, but can be convinced to have them make up and be friends and play ring-around-the rosie and london bridges and swing on the pretend swings.
He loves books, he loves to be read to and he loves to look at his favorite books and tell the story to himself. He usually wants daddy to read to him at night, but once in a while mom gets to do the honors.
He likes to work in his pre-school book and identify the letters and trace different shapes and lines.
He loves to play with his siblings. He's so proud of himself that he's growing bigger like them.
He loves to play with friends too.
He has an unhealthy love of video games.
He's a good helper. He loves to help me clean bathrooms, and he'll put his toys and books away.
He has the most amazing, melt your heart smile, that just makes you happy and want to smile yourself.
He says such funny things in Primary. I wish I could be in there just to hear what he has to say. Apparently, he's not shy at all. He frequently raises his hand or just blurts out his answers. He was recently spotlighted- u can imagine his delight when they said 'This person loves to ride his Diego bike.' And he realized he was the one being honored. Every week when they called up birthdays, he wanted to go up, because he has a birthday too. It's just not here yet. Imagine the Primary President's delight when she could say, yes, Preston, you can come up, it is your birthday this week! Preston has started saying the most beautiful and detailed prayers. Asking to please give Jesus a high five and a hug, among lots of other beautiful and sweet and some funny requests.
What a sweetheart! I love Preston sooooooo much it hurts my heart!
