This is going to be another week long celebration. Gracie's birthday is actually on Friday and Dawit's is next Tuesday. We celebrated yesterday with a huge Lebanese feast. It was soooo yummy! Does anyone else think it is a little funny that my Ethiopian had Lebanese on his birthday?
Just like Christmas, Dawit wasn't really into opening his gifts. That was just fine with Avery! She opened all his gifts and blew out his candle. :) Even though he didn't care about tearing through the paper, he enjoyed playing with the boxes and eventually got to the actual gifts. His favorite was a leapfrog toy mom and dad got him....LOTS of noise and buttons to push! He also got some moola that we are going to put toward swimming lessons. Here his is opening his truck with NeNe. He got a firetruck too. More boy toys, yeah!
James and I got Gracie a Leapster and a Scooby Doo math game. She was really excited! Lindsay got her a Tangled spelling game to go along with it. She also got some really cute clothes....had to try them on when we got home and model in front of the mirror to "make sure they are cute."
I love this picture of mom and the girls.
Happy Birthday to Gracie!
Happy Birthday to Dawit!
Dawit LOVED the cake. Are you surprised??
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my boy!
While we were finishing lunch, Dawit was playing in the kitchen. When we heard him fussing I looked and saw this....
I couldn't figure out why he was crying. Then I saw this... Notice his diaper is caught on the drawer knob. I couldn't stop laughing!! I grabbed my camera and continued to laugh all the while he was stuck and crying! I just thought it was so funny! Every time he tried to stand up, he couldn't. He just kept pulling the drawer out.
Later this week Gracie is having a slumber party with her cousin and one of her friends. (AM I CRAZY??) It is a pinkalicious party...so my dining room table is a sea of pink as I prepare for Friday. Look for more birthday fun posts in the coming week. I think we have three more parties. Fun times!
I just love my little family!
