Birthday Festivities Have Begun!

LM's first birthday will be tomorrow. We have a little family party planned. There will be cake. And you know I'll cover it here, because, you know, that's pretty much all I get around to covering here these days. But, the festivities have already begun. First, our good friends sent him a gift last week that we let him already open, and second, we had cupcakes at school. So here are the highlights.

S and LM sat down to open the gifts.

John Deere Trimmer!

When the boy was born, these same friends gave him a John Deere hedge trimmer. It's a long story, but it was sort of funny to us given our history with hedge trimmers. I'll have to tell you another time. Ahem. Anyway, he has a wonderful John Deere hedge trimmer. And now they have added to the collection.

I'm so glad we chose the backdrop of the semi-dirty fireplace.
Nice memories. Heh heh.

But wait! There's more!

Also, a John Deere tractor that is a flashlight too!
LM really likes taking them around the house as you can see here.

Then, we had a little birthday party at LM's school. We had it early in the week because I had a Groupon for cupcakes that was going to expire. So, sister, we had cupcakes a few days early!

LM is a clear member of my clan, digging right into the cupcake.

And some of his buddies had cupcakes with him.

His best buddy T-Baby was on vacation. So we left a cupcake for her to eat the next day. Collier and Jett played right along though!

It was a fun little time together.

Of course, more festivities are on the horizon! See you soon.
