Peter's Birthday

Peter's birthday lasted a few days.  Isn't that the way it should be?!  We got to have two cakes with both families, and he loved it.  I think it took him a bit to realize it was his birthday, but what he didn't know, Carter made up for and tried to "help" him with all of his presents!

^^^Peter loved his cake at Mimi's house
 ^^^and it doesn't get much better than spending the day with all of your boy cousins
 ^^^He was just looking for a little instruction in how to blow those candles out.  Uncle Justin to the rescue!
 We even got to see Jeremy's uncle Joe Don and cousin Taylor!

Then, on the 17th, it was an early start, and we had these for breakfast.  I highly recommend them (even if a bit sweet)!
 ^^^Peter got an easel and a bunch of art supplies for his birthday.  He was read for artwork in no time, so he and Carter headed outside...
 ^^^a potty break was necessary (I used to think this was gross, and I better start being more strict or we'll scare the "neighbors."
 ^^^the birthday poster
 ^^^the boys' art
 ^^^cookies from Denise's Sweet Treats (yum)!
 ^^^Andy and Kyle stopping by for a present delivery
^^^balloons are always the highlight of the birthday 
 ^^^Rocky - the beloved horse
 ^^^little guys wanting so badly to be big
^^^and the Knights.

Two was a fun birthday.  And, it will be an even better year!


  1. Happy birthday, Peter!!! What a fun celebration!

  2. Multiple celebrations with cake AND cookies (Peter's favorite, right?) - I'd say that's a pretty good birthday!! And art supplies and swords. Covered all the bases! Happy belated birthday, Peter!


  3. Carter looks quite confused by the Funfetti pancakes. I love that picture. And love the pit stop photo as well--good grief you guys are so much fun! I can't wait for you to be here!

  4. Oh my gosh. I love all of these pictures. Especially the potty break picture!
