warning: photo heavy!
micah flashing 3 for the official ‘last day to be..’ picture the night before his birthday:showing 4! after my exercise class, he wanted to go for some hot chocolate, so we had a little starbucks date:after that, he wanted to go to the park. we ran into some friends there:then it was off to mcdonalds for lunch:daddy brought home some balloons for the birthday boy after work:grandma and grandpa came over for birthday dinner. layla and grandpa, fooling around:grandma, working on her new knitting project:a little birthday skype w/ gramma laurie:time for dinner. pancakes and sausages, his choice. we put the candles in his pancakes and sang, since we won’t be having his actual cake until sunday:officially 4 years old:present time! layla picked out this shirt for him:and, she made him ‘a computer’. I think he was more excited about this than the actual present! LOL.super excited about the play-doh ice cream maker from grandma and grandpa. he’s had his eye on that for a long time.some monster trucks and a shirt from auntie marge:along with some bubble wrap!and then there was “all the jammies”. I thought I was being clever by killing two birds with one stone. he needed jammies for winter. he was having a birthday. so I made them a present. he was less than excited with “all the jammies”, but mostly because he wanted to get to……this one! the BIG present!this one was met with a little more enthusiasm!and then everyone had to help put it together… micah was ready to play, even if it was just with one ramp and a car:putting on the final touches:layla, showing grandpa how to play the “perry the platypus game on her cardboard DS”. grandpa is such a good sport!and then we had some ice cream. so did toby:well, he got to lick out the bowls. so funny.micah, grandma, and all the jammies!all in all, a successful birthday!
