Before there was Christmas and 2009...


Charlie had a birthday and turned 4!
Can I just start by saying "Thank Heaven for 4!"
The Terrible Twos and the Horrible Threes are gone. And for that I am deeply grateful.
I love my Charlie.
We threw him a birthday party with cake, ice cream, balloons, streamers, pin the tail on the donkey, presents, 6 friends (no girls), a green dinosaur pinata, Batman, Transformers, Darth Vader and Spiderman. It was a wild good time!
Here's the documentation:

Happy Birthday Second born Castagnetto. Love the blurry Mandy in one of those shots (Hi Mandy!). Benny looks ridiculously old and artsy.
