Happy Birthday Landon!

Today is Landon's 2nd birthday! It's so hard to believe my little boy is already TWO!! He is growing up so quickly! I am so thankful for how precious he is and thank God for blessing us with this healthy handsome boy!

On Saturday, we had a small birthday party for him with our families. He wanted a Curious George birthday and I must say that it was SOOOOO cute :) The decorations and paper products we found were so colorful and cute! For the food, we did a "M is for Monkey" theme and tried to have the entire menu made with foods that started with the letter "M" - we had Meaty Manwiches (sloppy joes), Macaroni and Cheese (baked macaroni and cheese), Mozzarella Sticks, Monkey Munch, and Munchies (fruit, veggies, and chips). And then I made a Curious George cake :) I thought it turned out well and I am so glad it is done :) Anyways, I posted several picture on facebook, so here is a link to them:

He received some AWESOME gifts! Lots of Curious George things - stuffed animals, books, band-aids, snack. He also LOVES Thomas, so Nana and Pop-pop got him lots of Thomas things - including a nice wooden track! He got a tractor, a tractor trailer that stores matchbox cars, clothes, some fun sticker activities and last but not least, a FOUR WHEELER! My family pitched in and got this for him. He loves it and surprisingly drives it very well - it didn't take him long to pick it up! He still has a hard time reversing, but otherwise, he drives it very well!

Well, I better close this - he wants to go to McDonald's for his birthday lunch, so we are leaving shortly. Daddy took the day off (YAY) to spend with Landon and all of us, so we are going to go to lunch soon and then try to get stuff done. I'll write another post some other time to update the house situation!!
