Look Who's Two!!

Little Pea turned TWO on Saturday and celebrated his first birthday at home! We had such a great day and it was so special to be sharing this day together as a family. We celebrated with a special breakfast, a visit to the park, and then a family party in the evening. I think pea had a lot of fun!

I tried my hand at a 3D firetruck cake. It was really cute until gravity started taking affect! I just didn't set it right, but it lasted just long enough for us to sing "Happy Birthday!" Pea loved it and that's all that matters! He woke up this morning saying "Firetruck cake gone?"

Cake and "cream."
Our little birthday clown!
Piñata time! Have you noticed a theme, yet? Seriously, I never thought I would be one of those moms that did themes, but...well...it just happens! Pea loved the firetruck piñata. Waiting to do some smashin' with his cousins.

Ready to go.
SMASH!! He did such a great job smashing the piñata. Should I be worried? :)
His new "big" firetruck.
Pea and his cousin playing with his new Little People garage.
Finally, his "cachow" face. Pea just recently discovered the movie Cars.
Happy Birthday, baby! We love you so much!!!

Another CACHOW boy!! Look out, Mom. Reese is all about CARS, and we are frantically collecting each one as he becomes obsessed. We have quite the collection.

Where has this year gone? Two already.....I so remember last year. You rocked on the cake, and yes, as parents we eat many words. I swore I wouldn't do themed bedrooms, and the girls have each had one or two...and Reese is heading there.

Glad you enjoyed this day together...and so many more to come. Happy Birhday, Eli!!!

Happy Birthday Eli!!!

I know about the theme thing! I was the same way, but then when your little boy loves something how can we help it?

Watch out for the movie cars! It'll get 'em!
