Birthday Boy

Guess what! I'm three!

We started the day by heading off to our regular Thursday morning playgroup. I had planned to bring some cupcakes for the kids and ended up finding some party hats and a game to go with our Disney Cars themed birthday.

Here are a few of Micah's friends waiting for the fun to begin...

Micah was the first contestant for "Pin the sticker on Lightning McQueen"...


He was very upset that he didn't get the sticker right on - a perfectionist already!


Watching while his friends try out the game...


Classic!


Keziah trying on a party hat...


Then came the cupcakes, juice boxes and Christmas oranges. Micah even got a few gifts - which I wasn't expecting!


After a much-needed nap, we started getting ready for a family birthday supper. Rosanna and Micah share a birthday so the Toews' ate together with Rosanna's family.

Some of the Cars birthday decor:


The birthday boy and girl after the candles have been blown out... and after Micah swiped a finger full of icing :)


Grandpa cutting the ice cream cake while Micah points to the piece with his name on it!


Two K.T.'s :)


Time for presents - Micah & Mommy read a card and practice holding up THREE fingers!

A "My First Leap Pad" from Mommy & Daddy:


Micah was frustrated when he couldn't figure out these glow-in-the-dark bath toys from his Auntie Kristi. But, hey, it's his party and he can cry if he wants to...


Playing with the huge container of play food from Auntie Rosanna:

All in all the day was a success and Micah seems to be enjoying his new age. It seems it may have finally pushed him into the no-napping phase but I am still managing to keep him in his room for a long "quiet time" (right now I can hear him hammering on his toy workbench but at least he's staying in his room!)

Happy birthday Micah:)
You and Erik are doing a great job with him Jamie. I'm really impressed with the way you've dealt with things and how you balance discipline and love. Have a Merry Christmas!

So you weaned Micah off of his naps? Does that help him sleep better at night? He looks like he's 4 in the first picture. What a big boy.
