We Have a 3 Year Old!

James is three!
It seems like just yesterday that boy was a newborn baby!
Time flies, I guess.
{His birthday isn't really for a week after 
the fourth...but we have always
celebrated on the 4th since everyone is already at our house!}
One day James 
{without me knowing!}
told Grandma B. about this giant puppy
he saw at Costco and that he wanted it 
for his birthday.
She made his wish come true!
{Jon and I were...ummm...speechless!}
James was thrilled!

His "big Gift"
from Mommy and Daddy 
required eyes closed 
until Daddy put the gift in front of him...
He was SO excited...
he didn't even peek!

He saw the gift...
he couldn't contain himself...
He was happy...
A fancy battery operated car!
He had been begging for one for a long time!

A long time ago while shopping at 
Big Lots,
Elsie had found a play fishing pole and fish...
she though it was the perfect gift for her brother...
a few months later,
she remembered about the little pole and 
insisted on going to Big Lots to 
get it for him for his Birthday!
Such a thoughtful big sister!

This picture kills me!
He looks so much like his Daddy, 
its crazy!
He was beyond happy with his little red car!

A little Red car the really goes,
a giant puppy...
what more could possible make him happier...
Oh yeah,
being naked and driving the little car!
I'm not really sure how he came about being naked,
but he thought is was pretty funny...
Then Daddy came and made him put clothes on.
Fun spoiler!
After  the little man donned some clothes,
it was pinata time!

It was way more thrilling to roll down the hill,
then jump up and start whacking the pinata...
And a sure way to achieve the more damage
to the pinata,
is to hold it in place while whacking it!
My boy knows how to do it!
In the end,
Elsie was the one who 
whacked it hard enough to break it open!
{Must have taken a while to open it up 
and Uncle Colter got tired of standing and 
thought he could squeeze a nap in!}
Happy squeals 
seeing all that candy falling!

Then is was time for cake...
James requested Orange Frosting 
and a Monster Truck!
And just like that...
My boy had his 3rd Birthday Party.
Shocking to think he is 3!
