Happy Birthday J!

Yesterday (& today) we celebrated J's birthday.  I honestly can't believe my little guy is two.
We had a party with some friends.  It was so cute when J first walked in he was so excited!  "Melmo! Melmo! Melmo! Melmo!"  Yes, the theme was Elmo (and Sesame street) and Elmo decorations were all around.

                                                      First we colored Elmo 2 pictures.
Then we played a Cookie Monster ball toss game.
And then Pin the nose on Elmo.
The cupcakes were delicious.  I didn't take a picture of them though :(

And watched Elmo's World
Then we played with balloons
oh & hide & go seek with Cookie Monster (didn't get a picture of this either)
but the kids would go count in the kitchen area & the person "it" would hide Cookie somewhere in the big room.  J had the most fun "counting" with all the kids.  He is getting so smart - can almost count to ten *but misses 5 & 6.

It was a really fun party (and John & I were exhausted by the time we got home).

Today after nap we opened presents.
the Jeppson family was "there" via google chat

the boys got impatient & started wrestling
I love that my boys get along well.  They play together every day.  Of course it is loud and there are some times tears but for the most part they are VERY good friends.

We also got a new pet - Koda the Triceratops.  
J was freaked out the first couple of minutes (it roars & moves when on).
but now that big brother has shown him that Koda isn't real & how to flip the off switch
Koda is a fun toy

Wonderful days and we are so happy to have such a wonderful boy in our family.  
He is a great blessing to us all.
