We had a little birthday party for Micah recently. It was so fun! We had our families over, and it was fun to see everyone again. Micah sure had a ball.....
Here is the cake I made for Micah. I took him to the store and let him pick out his own cake. I was sure he's pick a ball. But he saw Elmo and was in love. It was funny because we don't have tv, and we don't watch much tv, and I'm pretty sure he has no idea who Elmo is. He saw the mold and started growling like a monster. He's so funny! Anyway, I thought it turned out pretty cute. Much easier to frost than Lightning McQueen. :)
Here's cute little Abby playing with the ribbons on the presents. She did this most of the night. Boy howdy were they fascinating!
This is the only decent picture I got if Micah unwrapping presents. He wasn't really into the whole present thing much at all. We finally let all the kids pick a present to open for him and show him. Everyone loved that idea. Micah would glance up at most of the gift, and then continue to be occupied with whatever it was he was doing. But all that changed when we lit the candles on the cake and sang.....I loved the way his sweet little face lit up with the candles and singing. (Actually, one of the presents we got him was a pretend birthday cake with pretend candles. Singing "Happy Birthday" and blowing the "candles" is a several-times-a-day occurrence at our house lol.)
He did finally begin playing with his gifts once the candles were over. He loved them all (thanks everyone!) Here he is with cute Jason playing ball of course.
Thanks everyone who came. It means so much to us and the boys. And thanks for your wonderful gifts. We love you!
