By the time we left he was a MESS...and VERY VERY tired can you tell? We have a AWESOME weekend celebrating Benjamin's 2nd Birthday and look forward to the adventures that await us on the way to 3!

The Birthday Bash!

We had Benjamin's 2nd Birthday party on the 27th. He picked Elmo and he partied with Elmo from the time he got up until the time he went to bed. =)
When he got up on Saturday he was so excited about all of his decorations! (Like the Elmo PJ's)
I went out EARLY and got Daylight Donuts he loves the sprinklesLet the PARTY begin...his friends all arrived and we started things off with a game of Pin the Nose on Elmo! Then it was time for Pizza and juice boxes... he doesn't get juice boxes often this is maybe his 3rd one ever and he sucked it down in like 2 seconds. Opening his gifts yes he has A LOT to work through if you look at the table behind him...he was taken with the banana's. Eww...while I was reading the card he took a huge bite out of one of the banan's peeling and all! The banana's came with a gift card to Monkey Joes incase you were wondering =) He loved opening his gifts and didn't want any help at all. He was great with his manners he told everyone thank you after he opened their gift. He was really interested in his new clothes which I found funny since most of the time they just get thrown to the side and he told Aunt Rhonda thank you at least 10 times for them! This was at the end of the gift opening Christian wanted to help and as you can tell from the picture Benjamin wanted to do it himselfNow onto the cake the WONDERFUL Elmo cake and cupcakes. (If you ever need to have a cake made I can give you the name of a GREAT cake decorator and she is really reasonable!) He wasn't quite sure what to think when everyone was singing Happy Birthday to him. Blowing out the candles he needed a little helpA red cupcake!!He went straight for the icing love that little red face! Napkin please he doesn't really like to be messy which is funny considering he is just one big mess =) The Elmo pinata- the pinata's are alwaya a hit! Pulling the string!! Putting some of the loot in his bag Playing with his balloon that is one of his favorite things to do...he is actually still carrying it around the house Daddy Mommy and the VERY HAPPY Birthday boy! Our Family! Oh wait though the party wasn't over when everyone left it kept going at least for Benjamin- Playing Mr. Potato Head with Grandpa Trying on Uncle James hat and glasses- HEART BREAKER! and playing peek a boo from under the Thomas Gift Bag while wearing his new shirt he couldn't put down.... and what birthday night would be complete with out "driving" Uncle Jame's truck before he headed back home!
Benjamin definitely had a fun filled day of partying from the time he got up until the time his head hit the pillow that night he was SPOILED. He had a blast!! He was a little overwhelmed at first when we had 30+ people standing around the house waiting to help him celebrate but he finally warmed up. We were so thankful to have so many friends and family here to help celebrate with us. This year was a little different because Benjamin has made his "own" friends and Christian wondered where some of his friends were we had to explain that we couldn't invite EVERYONE we wouldn't have enough room for them all! We can't believe that he is already 2 working on 3. He is a blessing to us and we are so thankful he is part of our family!
