December 27, 2010: Micah David turned three years old!
The little man ran into our bedroom that morning and we greeted him with a groggy round of "Happy Birthday!"
Balloons and some of his presents were waiting for him on the coffee table when he got downstairs. He wasted no time in tearing into his gifts.
First up, was an enormous firetruck from Grandpa and Oma Peeler. Grady Lee promptly declared that he was "going to ask Santa for a big firetruck like Micah's for Christmas." (Uumm, next Christmas is kind of a long way off Buddy.)
Next, a Curious George and a new Bible from Grandpa and Grandma High. Micah's favorite cartoon and book series is "Monkey George." He has since decided he doesn't want to sleep with his puppy and bunny anymore, which he's slept with since he was about 9 months old, only Curious George. When I heard him say this, I had a Toy Stoy 3 moment.
We asked Micah what fun thing he wanted our family to do on his birthday and he decided on bowling. So, even though we'd just recently done this, we headed back to the bowling lanes. This time we had good coupons on hand so even I got in on the fun.
Grady and I decided to take two cars so that the boys could use their walkie-talkies and see how they really work. Although they've been having fun with them at home, they seem to always yell when they use them and since they're in the same house they hear each other regardless of the walkie-talkie.
Micah thought it was pretty cool that he could "hear Gwady talking when he's in Daddy's car far away!"
Check out some clips of our crazy bowling adventures...
Later that day, after hundreds of "is it time for cake and more presents yet?", we showed Micah his birthday cupcakes. He was so excited to see soccer balls!
Seriously, how darling are these cupcakes?! All props go to our friend Elisabeth who totally rocks at making and decorating cupcakes!
Annalyse was not a fan of the loud singing and clapping. Yes, even though there were only three of us singing, a certain four-year old can sing quite loud.
Anyone remember the classic game of Ants in the Pants? I totally remember playing with my brothers when I was little. Good things never die.
Happy Third Birthday Micah Man!
