Look Who's Two!!!

We started out the morning with a duo of "Happy Birthday" by Logan and Mommy followed by the opening of the above present.  An ironic book about how dinosaurs share their toys with their friends.  Ironic, I say, because the boys spent most of the day fighting over who got to have the book.  

Next, Thad (and Mommy and Logan) enjoyed delicious Chocolate Chip Pancakes with whip cream smiley faces.  Scrumptious, indulgent, but also nutritious with flax seed and rolled oats. To check out the recipe, go here.  
  
mmmm.... serious sugar intake at 9 a.m. (can this only lead to trouble?)

Later that evening we were joined by various family members to celebrate Thad's big day of the year.  Mommy made Baked Spaghetti to feed an army (which we will now be eating for the next couple of weeks!) and Snickers Ice Cream Cake.  Thank goodness cousin Emma is ready and willing to run interference on would-be candle blower-out-ers.  

The toddler toy groupies at the present opening bonanza.

And finally, the icing on the night.  Motorcycles galore.  A miniature motorcycle that Thad insisted on sleeping with and the Harley Big Wheel that he can ride 'round and 'round the house all day long.  Let us pray this is not insight into a future love of grown-up motorcycles!

Happy Birthday to you, Thad!  You bring joy to our lives and a smile to our hearts.

Hey-- You forgot to mention what Dan said about Logan asking him to put the book "somewhere where Thad can't get it"! I thought that was priceless!!!
Fun party, and Mo was happy about you sending me home w/some of that baked spaghetti. Yum
Thanks!

Loved seeing all the groupies at the present opening bonanza! They had a blast! Oh, and great pic of Thad on the bike. :]

That is a rad bike! My girls will definitely be fighting over it next time we visit. He looks so old in that picture with the pancake! Can't wait to try the recipe. :)

Sounds like a fun day and night! It's so cool that there are so many cousins about the same age! I too love the pic of the new bike!
