Happy Birthday, Bugsy!

I can hardly believe it. Our Bugsy turns 5 today! I see him every day & am still amazed at how quickly he is growing up.
I've posted some pictures here in this post & some separately from my older files. He has changed in many ways but in many ways he is the same. He is still a sweet, loving, active boy full of personality and grins. I am deeply thankful for our precious boy. He filled our arms & hearts in a time when we were grieving deeply. He brought joy back to all of us. I love you, Bugs and am thankful to have every day at home with you.

Elvis' Birthday

As more birthdays are approaching I realized I never posted photos of Elvis' birthday. Oh no! I apologize to the relatives I've kept waiting.
We had a grand time on his special day. On his actual birthday we went to the lake & then out for Chinese food. Oh so yummy! Of course he enjoyed his presents too. He got a big surprise this year as you will soon see.

At the lake with his new goggle
It is our tradition for our birthday child to pick both a special place to go on their big day & what they'd like to feast on for their birthday dinner.

Having fun at the lake.

Boo made this turtle sculpture free hand.

Enjoying out picnic lunch.

Time for dinner!
These ladies were so sweet. They heard us talking about it being Elvis' birthday. Before we knew it they came out with this beautiful cake & sang happy birthday. Elvis was BEAMING!

Beautiful design!

Now for presents!
This was from Boo. She knows how he likes clowning around. Lol!

Could it be?

Y-E-S! Silly bands!

A Buzz Lightyear cup from Sweet Pea.

For the pool.

He's been wanting one of these for a long time.

Do you see a theme?



A bank from Sweet Pea.
He LOVES saving his money.

Yes, he received all 3 sets of Toy Story 3 silly bands.

A very grateful boy!

Now for his biggest surprise!

And his favorite color to boot!

I don't think his grin could get any bigger!

Some of his new silly bands!
