Happy Birthday Noah! You're 3!

We had such a fun celebration for Noah's 3rd Birthday today! Noah started out the day with a phone call from his friend Evan from church singing him Happy Birthday. Noah really enjoyed that! Then we spent the day making Noah's Sponge Bob Square Pants cake. Noah has only seen that show twice or so, but that's the cake he wanted. How hard can it be to make a "square" cake?We had a Halloween themed dinner. We had brain sandwiches (bologna sliced real thin on buns), noses dipped in blood (tater tots in ketchup), and dead man's punch (orange Kool-Aid, ginger ale, and green sherbet). It was all very tasty...so much so that Noah almost refused to eat any! Here's Noah's "Onge Bob" cake, like he asked for. Everyone thought he had "angry eyes." We'll pretend that was what I was going for!
Grandma Carrot and Grandpa Dana spoiled Noah to death! This was probably his favorite gift. He "water colored" a good portion of the night.
And he of course loved his gum ball machine. The kids are not excited about having to earn money for gum everyday though! Grandma and Grandpa also sent light sabers and cool capes. (They also sent a Star Wars movie that the kids are very excited to watch as soon as the weekend gets here!) Here's Arwen being a Jedi!Joshua LOVED the light sabers. While Noah painted, Josh and Arwen had battles in the living room. He carried it around with him everywhere all night. Now, both Arwen and Noah are in bed with their sabers! Noah also scored a couple of Buzz Lightyear figures and lots of art supplies. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for making "shopping" easy on me!!! :) What a fun day we got to spend with Noah!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NOAH! So fun. Kristin got that watercolor thing, and she too, LOVED it! Gotta love super grandparents! Noah will remember that he always got the coolest packages in the mail for all occasions. Kyle was just complaining he didn't get mail anymore...I told him it's because we live by family now...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Sponge Bob looks yummy Sarah! HAPPY BIRTHDAY NOAH!!! You have such a great mom that throws an awesome birthday party. We have a little something you can open at Thanksgiving. (Sorry, once I heard you were coming I didn't want to pay the postage).

Wow! Way to go on the cake. It looks awesome! I shouldn't show Evan...he'll want something on the same level for his birthday. Forget about it, son!

Noah has liked Sponge Bob ever since he got his thumb smashed off in the door. Sponge Bob was playing on the TV in the ER room. I think this was the first time he saw it. But I think he associates it was the comfort of distraction it gave him while waiting for and having his thumb sewn back on.
