For day 2 of his birthday week, Jace got a collection of Mickey Mouse books -- 12 total. We had bought them for Christmas and forgot to give them to him -- easy Birthday Week Present!! It's probably a good thing -- since there are VERY few pictures for the amount text that is on each page. They are perfect for right now. He was UBER excited to read them and have been enjoying a new one every night since -- and several during the day!
Jace's Dinosaur Train cake -- not quite the masterpiece that I had last year -- but let's face it -- I don't have 8 hours to devote to his cake. And it didn't even matter ... because he LOVED it!!!
The dinner party! Growing up, birthdays were a big deal. We always invited Grandma and Grandpa over -- and the day was special -- ours. I want the same for my kiddos! It isn't as easy as driving across the valley for both sets of grandparents though -- and we are very very grateful that Grannie and Grandad are willing to make the trek up for Jaceman's birthday dinner!! (Especially since they will be coming up again for our little family SO SOON!!)
More Dinosaur Train from Uncle Greg and Aunt Jade (sent all the way from Oklahoma!! What troopers!!)
We had an awesome birthday dinner -- thanks for all who came!
