Here's what happened yesterday, March 9th:
Miles got a couple of gifts to open in the morning. Here he is (funny face and all) in his cowboy pants and stick-horse, all handmade by aunt-e. Cute.
Ohhhhh, he's so excited! And he doesn't even quite know what it is. Ha.
Now he knows and is still excited.
Opening some presents:
Miles got a new bike as well. He was pretty excited about it, I think.
Unfortunately it was SO windy (no, Jonas' hair is not like that from his incredible speed. That wind was awful yesterday!) that we didn't stay out too long. And today we got about 3-4 inches of snow and so our biking adventures will have to wait a little bit.
That evening after dinner we had a few friends over for some cake and ice cream, and pinata. Miles was real excited to have people over. We had read a book the week before about Jesse Bear giving out "goodie bags" to his friends at his party. So Miles made sure I got some things so he could give them to his friends. Also, on Sunday morning Miles spent it drawing and coloring pictures for each of his friends' goodie bags - Jonas and Emmy included. It was sweet of him.
Birthdays are so magical when you're a kid.
The day ended with the 4 of us (minus a sleeping emmy) watching Wall-e. That was the first time we've let the boys stay up to 10pm - besides driving places, etc.! To top off the great day, Miles got some sardines after the show. What could be better than that?
