And now, he is a rambunctious two year old.
He loves being outside, though lately he hasn't gotten to spend too much time outdoors. So, his little at home family birthday party has a picnic-y feel to it.
Please excuse my poor hubby trying to escape the picture. He didn't move quite quickly enough!
This is just our family, plus my mom and dad and yet it's party a plenty! That's one of the great things about having a big family...you don't need anyone extra to have a party.
Caleb loved opening his gifts and is shown above with the cool backpack that Grammy and Grampy gave him. It has a sleeping bag, flashlight, and water bottle. We gave him...
A shirt with a dump truck on it (Target) $6
A truck board book (Target) $9
If I Built a Car book (from the mail) $0
Two Melissa and Doug wooden trucks (Goodwill) $4
A Cars Backpack and Cars Baseball Cap (Sears) $3
A felt campfire (Handmade) $0
For a total of $22
(Can you tell that trucks are his main interest right now?)
Food was very basic...hotdogs, hamburgers, deviled eggs, fruit skewers and dip, salad, a sugar free trifle for the adults, and dirt dessert for the kids.
I tend to be one of "those moms" who loves to go overboard on birthday parties, but since Caleb slept through a big part of this party I am perfectly satisfied with this simple affair. How do you celebrate birthdays in your family?
