Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

The Laugh-Out-Loud Funny Birthday Gifts

"From there to here, from here to there,
funny things are everywhere!"

Nathan has yet to finish opening up all his birthday gifts but of those he has 'ripped' into we have some funny video footage to share.

The Bicycle horn! Lord help us!

The Drum set! Nathan must have a little of his mommy's love for drums in him. I played the drums all through high school.

Another family tradition ~ the minute Danny saw this gift he smiled. Nathan's Big Nonni (great grandfather was known for his harmonica).

Nathan loves his remote controlled car! Chopper, as you'll see isn't a fan.

We hope you've enjoyed this addition of the Terry Family Fun House! hahahaha

Happy Birthday to Nathan! Today is Your Day!!!

This weekend the Terry Family celebrated Nathan's birthday ~ Dr. Seuss style!! The party was a HUGE success and we had a great time putting it together! (For our beloved friends, we only invited family because of spacing issues.)

Each of the tables was a different Dr. Seuss book and everything from the tablecloth to the napkins and balloons matched. Nathan's birthday cake was the Cat in the Hat theme (made by Cakes by Jane) and his gift table was themed after the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Nathan also had the coolest birthday plates ever!! The stuff you can make these days!

We hung our favorite quotes around the food areas and even created our own games! Nathan's cousin did all the coloring of ~ The Fish Bowl game. We colored Green Eggs and placemats. The children were treated to story time and a puppet show!

Oh and we can't forget about the hats! What would a Dr. Seuss party be without crazy fun hats?

Nathan was so tired he fell alseep after we had cake! We began opening gifts last night and will finish tonight. I'll post those pictures and videos this week. Nathan is having a grand time opening his gifts! It's hysterical really! He's making a mess!

Thank you to those who contributed to the menu ~ the food was wonderful and certainly a group effort!
