Andrew had left the house for a bit to go get the pizzas and some balloons with Daddy. When he came back everything was set up and ready to go. But the smile on his face is for his Grandma & Grand-Daddy (my parents) ---
They got him Mack the Truck!! He LOVED it!!
He is so making the face that says, "Really? While I'm eating?!" LOL Love you, honey!
Singing "Happy Birthday" to my little man - I LOVE his smiles!
Blowing out the candles
Giving it another try ;)
Getting some help from friends :)
Oh my goodness! Back outside again and tumbling around in the tents! LOL
Time for presents! I love how Andrew pulled them down from the table and lined them up before opening them. He is so funny! Love it!
Ok, let me just point out another difference a year can make - 2 year olds open present MUCH SLOWER than 3 year olds do. Oh. My. Gosh. I could barely take pictures of it all. It was crazy fast. But, he enjoyed it and that is all that matters (and getting the thank you notes correct haha).
Well, the party may have ended for our guests, but two certain somebodies didn't take notice. Even though they were in their pajamas. I couldn't clean up anything with those two running around the table. Luckily, it was only the last corner of the cookie cake, apples and grapes that they decided to finish off.
Ok,I know this picture may not look like much. But, to a Mama who was working hard on this party, this tiny container meant a lot. Jason had picked up the pizza and had set it all up on the counters. Well, instead of just haphazardly putting these packets of red pepper flakes and parmesan where ever, he found this sandwich container and put them out on display. LOVE HIM! Oh, that container (I have 2 actually) was found at the Dollar Tree by the way :)
Getting into their goody bags - as if there wasn't enough stuff to get into LOL
It was such a wonderful birthday weekend!!
Mommy and Daddy love you so much and have loved watching you grow up more and more this past year. You have such a sweet smile and the best laugh! You tell us the cutest stories, too. You have also become not just the best big brother to Alex, but you have also become his best friend this year, too. We love watching you two play together. We hope that you had a wonderful party, little man. We love you so much!!
