Archer is 4!

As these last four years have unfolded before us, it was obvious from the start that Archer looks just like his Mama. However, it was not till this last year we discovered more and more that in the inside he is all Daddy! His passions match his Daddy’s! Started with Superheros at age two. Then shortly after he fell in love wth all the movies Daddy introduced him too. So much so that this year for Halloween when people ask, “Who are you going to be for Halloween?” he responds, “Sam Flyn.” If you are with the majority of other people who do not know who this is, do not worry you are normal. If I continue to tell you that Sam Flyn is a character from the Disney movie Tron and you are still confused, do not worry you are normal. Archer has only seen motorcycle scenes from this movie, but he loves it so much that he qoutes the movie when he plays and goes so far as to reenact fight scenes. When we went to Disney World, he was crushed when they did not offer a Tron ride. That alone tells you how unpopular this movie is. Archer was given a Cd player at his birthday party because he loves his Disney soundtracks and other 80’s music his Dad loves such as Africa by Toto, Broken Wings by Mr. Misterand more. James is planning to burn him some new CD’s. Oh, how I wish we were a digital family. We realized this last year he is passionate about music and it has been fun to give him the freedom to play his music on his own. He is one big goof ball and his imaginative play ceases to amaze us. James’ family always labeled James as the one in the family with the temper. James always quickly argues, “No, I was not.” However, if he was when he is younger, than Archer takes after him as well. He can be quickly angered at times, but thankfully it goes away about as fast as it comes on. However, when he is mad, he is mad! Archer is also passionate about books. A month or more prior to his birthday we were reading The Bernstein Bears and Too Much Birthday about every other day. The books has games, food and lot of other bears at the party and at the end little sister cries because things did not go the way it was suppose to go. When I look back at Archer’s party he asked for games like the book, we were not sure who was going to be able to make it so we over invited and had lots of friends come to celebrate and then Archer did not cry that night, but he cried the next morning as soon as he woke up because he thought he never had cake. No matter how many times I tried to retell him about the party he continued to argue that he never had his cake. This is Archer at 4!

The games were intense!

We had a movie themed birthday party.  So his cupcakes looked like movie popcorn, which all the kids took to the TV room to watch a video of them at the party playing the games.
