Happy Birthday Chris!

Good grief - I can hardly believe how quickly time has gone. Can it really be that my baby boy is now 3 years old?!
Last night we had a little party for him. It was fun watching him open and play with his new toys. But I realized that being a parent is really a lot of fun - I loved picking out his gifts, and was more excited about him opening them than he was! Here is a few pictures of the fun...

Pizza for dinner: his favorite!

His buddy Jason

Playing with balloons ;)

His new pirate ship

We got him a flashlight since he is always trying to steal Mark's. It was a hit - he even slept with it. It only took him about an hour to kill the batteries ;) We're going to invest in some rechargeables!

He got a scooter from Grandmom and Pop - he loves it!

Checking out his cake...

He was really excited about the M&M's!

I really wanted to get a picture of both Chris and Anna together. If she looks a little wide-eyed in this one, you'll see why in the next picture...

(yes, I did stop him right away!)

Ha ha ha! I love the picture of Chris lighting up Anna's face :) I started getting excited about those M&Ms too and I can't even eat them! Looks like he had a great bday- we miss you guys!

those are some adorable pics of Chris! and I totally love the sibling shots, we tried to get our 2 in pics together a lot but it's hard getting 2 little ones to look at the camera at the same time. love ya, friend... hope things are going great!
