He even got to go "help" me find and make some decorations and put them on the tree.
I will use most of the same decorations for Hollace's turn, except I got some different ribbon and a pink crown for the top. I tried to make it not too girly- you know, a unisex tree, but Brent informed me I didn't do a very good job of that, that it has too much pink. I will try to work on that for next time.
It is sort of different on birthdays now that we don't have lots of family here. We didn't really have a big birthday party either. Poor Thad. I don't think he really cared though.
He loved opening his presents and couldn't get his new shoes on fast enough. The boy loves shoes.
More presents..........notice the little helper hands.
We invited a couple of the neighbor kids to come over and have some birthday cupcake.
Thad was loving the icing.
One of the kids got some icing on their nose and everyone laughed, so of course they all had to get icing on their noses.
LOVE this picture of my sweet 2 year old.
This is the box that my mom used to send her gifts. I think they had as much fun with the box as they did with the gifts inside.
