Yea! I just love my kids' birthday - a chance to make them feel special. :) I love it. It was a very busy and very delightful day:Waking up to the traditional birthday-streamers!
His first present of the day - and really he couldn't have been more excited. :) I started making Emmy an apron the other day and Jonas kept telling me, "I want an apron." He even lamented to my sister, "Aunt-E," while she was here that she didn't make him an apron (she had made Miles an apron years ago. . .). So I got some old fabric and made this for him.
He loved, loved, loved his gun. He got some other neat gifts, too (including another favorite: remote-control motorcycle that he picked out with his gift-card from G. Max and G. Diana). But this one was pretty special.
For lunch we went to McDonalds and had fun there. Emmy was lucky to have her brothers there - Miles especially. He helped her climb up all the stuff to get to the slides. It was so cute and sweet.
Miles had a super fantastic day, too! (p.s. I think Emmy is behind him. Miles has her foot I am pretty sure. :)
While Emmy napped the boys got to watch some Max and Ruby Christmas DVDs. Yes, they watched lots of movies! Oh well. It makes up for the whole year when they don't get to watch much at all, right? Jonas lasted for a while, but then had enough and told Miles: "Miles, I am going to go and play now, okay?" Cute.
Later on we went to Walmart and the kids all got to pick out a little something. Miles and Emmy had gotten a few dollars from their grandparents (and great-grandma) and so they were able to pick out something too. Jonas, like I said, picked out a motorcycle toy. Fun times!
