Just back from a week in MO… it was time to celebrate the 3rd birthday of Little Hoss! (For privacy reasons I have digitally removed his name from his cake and the cute shirt he wore on his party.)
As usual, we had two celebrations. The first was on his actual birthday. We had a family dinner at my parent’s home. Of course there was a cake…
…with candles to blow out.
On the 29th we had the party celebration. The birthday boy was beside himself with excitement waiting for it to start!
Sis had a nice lunch spread. Burgers (beef and turkey) grilled by his Dad, a wild rice salad, a grilled corn-avocado-tomato salad, fruit salad (all made by his grandma), potato salad (made by his great-grandmother), and chips.
Three different things to drink… ice tea, strawberry lemonade, and punch that Sis was still making when I shot this photo.
His cake was cupcakes…home made by his Dad.
The party theme was ‘tractors/construction’. I found this John Deere fabric for his birthday banner.
Birthday boy and me! He’s supposed to be holding up three fingers! LOL
This year his “Sissy” Little Bird picked out his present all on her own.
She was sooo excited for him to open it.
Reaching in deep!
Oh boy! A dump truck!!
Of course the bags are fun too…
Then it was time to light the candles and sing “Happy Birthday”.
Blowing out the candles with a bit of help from Little Bird.
Time to munch!!
They were delicious!
