Before I get to Noah's birthday recap, I have to show you the chocolate pie for Rhett's birthday:
The day before Noah's birthday, a big package came in the mail. It was from Uncle Scott and Aunt Melissa. While on the phone with Noah's uncle, we let him open it:
The next morning, bright and early, Noah opened the rest of his presents. I love these following pictures:
"Awesome! Megaladons!" Thanks Grandmom!
Now, this face. Aww. I wish, just wish, Noah would smile like this all the time:
Or look at at all with this much adoration:
He loved his penguin pillow pet. Just loves it.
Later, we went to the church of Noah's choice and he chose one he loves and the rest of us, well, don't. But that is okay. Then we ate McDonald's for lunch, played all afternoon, went to Barnes and Nobles to spend the gift cards Nana and Pop bought both boys for their birthdays (Gift cards do not last long in our house. I begged them to hold off on the Target gift cards both of their aunts (Thanks Jana and Krista!) sent them until after Christmas), and then ate Cheddar's take-out while watching Disney's The Christmas Carol. This is the one with Jim Carrey as the voice of Scrooge. In Rhett's words, "This is a lot scarier than Mickey's Christmas Carol!" Ha ha!
Oh and yes, Noah's cookie pops with sparkler candles. We skyped Nana and Pop (Skype is awesome by the way. Does anyone else in my family have a webcam? Cause if so, we need to start Skype-ing!) and they helped us sing Happy Birthday (They did this for Rhett as well).
Birthdays are over. Christmas is almost here. I really didn't stress much about their birthdays this year (hello, bought pie and cookie pops!) and it was actually great. It shows me that they don't really care about a big production (although they do want a sleepover. Tips, Krista?). So yay.
Have a great day!
