Birthday pics!

We kept Elijah's birthday celebration this year as simple as possible since I am on bed rest. He adores Thomas the Train, so we got him a few Thomas balloons and a Thomas cake.

The decoration on top of the cake didn't last long. His eager little fingers grabbed the train off of there in about a half of a second.

He had fun opening his presents and got some really great gifts.

We got to spend a little bit of time with family and friends.

I always love the look on his face when he realizes that everyone is singing to HIM. :)

This year, for the first time, he enjoyed trying to blow out his candles.

And who knew this would be so exciting, but he actually enjoyed his cake and ice cream this year. He looked like such a big boy, using a utensil and everything!

It was a fun, fun afternoon! Thanks to those of you who were a part of it and who helped with it.

And tomorrow is Elijah's first day of preschool. YIKES!!!!!
