I can't believe my little
monkey Thomas is 3 years old! We had a fun party to celebrate his joyful little self, complete with monkey cake, monkey pinata, and lots of wonderful friends and family.
"How old are you, Thomas?"
Those little fingers just don't want to cooperate :-)
Thomas' pinata. I think the best part of my kids' birthday for them is going to the "party store" to pick out their pinata and balloons. It's become quite the tradition!
There was a certain football game on TV that everyone wanted to watch (read: if we didn't play it at the party, no one would have showed up but us!). But we're UI Vandals. There will be NO orange and blue at our house! We played the game, but flew our colors.
He caught on quickly that it was his special day - decided to grab the opportunity to jump on the couch :-)
"Op now?" Not quite yet, buddy...
I think he knows he's loved.
No party for Thomas would be complete without playing some ball. Since it was his party, he got to kick every other turn :-)
My sweet little guy was good enough to take a break from his game to give his Mama some love.
One of my favorite things to do for the kids' birthdays is to put a bunch of pictures from their life on an SD card, pop it into the Wii, and have it run a slideshow with the images. Such a neat way to celebrate their life and to see how much they've grown!
We all love you, little boy!

We bought him a little balance bike -
I was so happy that you liked your cake!
