Karsten's 5th Birthday!

A little late getting this posted, but here is some pictures from Karsten's birthday!  We hope our cousin Carter had a great birthday too!  (He was born the day after Karsten.)

Making yummy pizzas for his birthday dinner.

Pretty cool number five with the candles, although it took more than five candles to make it.  This is John Woozier cake.  Karsten wanted a chocolate cake.  When it was time to eat it, all he wanted was ice cream.  Go figure.

Make a wish!

Karsten was born by an elective c-section.  Looking back, if I had been in a better state of mind, I may have chosen the less invasive measure. But that's the past and the Lord knew it would all happen that way, so I don't regret it.  My scheduled c-section was on a Wednesday but I went in late on Sunday with contractions, and so the doctor decided to deliver him early Monday morning.  Karsten was blessed to be born on his Auntie Tonnia's birthday and she happened to be visiting when he was born!  Grandpa Christensen was also here as well!  He got to drive us home from the hospital!  We had visited Uncle Warren the Sunday before he was born with Aunt Linda and I was having contractions that whole day.  We love our smart little Karsten!  Kindergarten, watch out!

YAY!!! Happy Birthday Karsten! I cannot believe how big these kids are getting. When I came to the family 4 years ago, things were much different!

Happy birthday Karsten! Thanks for the shout out to Carter! I can't believe those little men are 5! We thought about Karsten on his big day. I should have called you.
