Nathan's Birthday Celebrations


Nathan had a good 2nd birthday. Even though we were in Alabama and away from Kent we still managed to give Nate a good birthday. I did the "stick candles in some sort of breakfast food" tradition. My parents always did that for me and I have always done it for my kids. Nathan didn't blow out his candles though. But his brother and sister helped him out. After breakfast, Nathan opened up his small gift from us (Kent and me) although my daddy wouldn't let me pay for it, so I guess it would technically be from him. :) We put the motorcycle together and he rode it for a bit but his older brother is the one who really took to it. As long as it gets used....

The next evening I had a small family party for him at the local streak house. Most of the family showed up. Others had previous plans and other circumstances that came up. Nathan was showered with many gifts. A bicycle helmet with horn (thanks Daddy...), shoes, football, cars, golf thingy and two spiderman cars. He had a good time with it all. He didn't blow out his candle on his cupcakes either. Maybe next year.

When we arrived home Kent had some presents waiting on Nathan. He got a portable gaming system (Leapfrog), a game to go with it, a bat and ball set and a small toy motorcycle. He was a happy camper for sure.

I can't believe that two years have come and gone already. Thankful for the two healthy years that we have had with him. Very thankful!
