In our family, February could be called the month of birthdays! Layne starts off on the 7th, then Greg, then Elijah and then yours truly!
This year, Anna and Jamie were starting to move, so I offered to host Layne's birthday. My sweet grand daughter was turning 4! It was a beautiful day, the kids got to play outside.
The big 4 year old!
We had pizza and, of course, cake! Layne chose Minnie and Mickie Mouse for her Mimi made cake, and Minnie had to be wearing purple.
After eating and playing, the kids had fun with a pinata.
Nana and Grandaddy came, as well as Uncle John.
She loves to tease her big brother!
Jamie got into the festivities.
This year, due to an unfortunate mishap at the pool this summer, Elijah had to forgo his birthday party. We still celebrated my dear boy.
He had his birthday breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes with whip cream.
For his birthday cake he wanted a cookie cake that he could decorate himself.
He labeled it his "Spider Man cake"
Elijah is still very much into cars. He adores remote control cars and has a lot of specially designed lego cars. He has invented a contraption upstairs on the lego table, as he is embraces his engineer skills. If I have to do anything, he will say, "Let the engineer take a look at it!" He is always repurposing things, which, although I recognize the value of it, it drives me nuts! There are always bits and pieces laying around, which formerly worked together to form some object. He has fixed the brakes on his bike twice.
This year, Elijah reached 50 pounds and was quite proud of himself. He hates to be called little! He is such a sensitive soul. All adults love him! He could talk to a sign post, if it would nod back and forth. He has such a talent for talking and getting along with others. I'm so proud of this little man! It will be fun to see God use Elijah's gift of gab and inventive nature for His good!
And lastly, it was my birthday bringing up the rear.
Abbey and Elijah brought me breakfast in bed.
Now, that's a beautiful sight to wake up to!
John bought me my very favorite cake.
We had gone out to lunch at my favorite Chinese restaurant a few days before.
February = birthdays!
