Birthday Celebrations: Round One

What a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! We visited with both sides of the family and had TWO HUGE Thanksgiving dinners. We spent the day of Thanksgiving at my parents house, both boys played and had a great time together. Then on Friday we headed down to visit Chris's family. What an event! Chris's Mom had gotten Bradley a birthday cake, and we had a little party for him. It was a blast!

Bradley got a little embarrassed while we were all singing "Happy Birthday" but he LOVED opening the gifts. It was hilarious, he would tear off the littlest pieces of paper at a time and throw them into the air. It was so fun to see him really excited! He got so many wonderful things, and really had a great time playing with all of them. The hit was a two story wooden firehouse with a matching firetruck. The rest of the weekend was spent with Bradley pushing his firetruck around Grandma's house.

I love this photo! Bradley did NOT like his cake last year. He cried and cried in his high chair and he ended up eating animals crackers. This year he was really into the cake. He dipped his little finger in the huge mound of balloon icing and said, "yummy!" He ate most of his cake, and was offering Aunt Kim a bite in this photo.



As sweet as he looks here, we paid the price later that evening. A manic two year old running laps around the dining room table is a sight to see!
On a side note, besides the party Bradley was really bad at Grandma's house. Tantrumming, having fits over nothing, we actually packed up early to head home. It ended up that he was working on an ear infection. We are on some antibiotics today, so hopefully we will be better by his party this weekend!

Ear infections are alwasy so painful- I hope he feels better right away!

And glad he liked the cake this year. Cake aversion is just a horrible thing! My husband doesn't like cake, and it's a definite rift in our marriage, lol.
