Ryan's birthday was last week. The big number 2! We didn't make a huge deal out of it but tried to make it a fun day anyway. It was the day before Thanksgiving and there was a lot to do. Hannah always makes sure to put up the Happy Birthday banner on anyone's birthday. That got Ryan excited!
Because I'm such an "on the ball" mom, I didn't even make Ryan a cake. I figured nobody would eat it because Thanksgiving was the next day. So, we went out to eat as a family and my parents watched the kids so Blaine and I could go shopping for a present for Ryan. (Really on top of things, I know but it had been snowing and blizzarding for 3 days continuously and I hadn't been out!) Anyway, I picked up some brownies and we sang to Ryan. He was so excited to blow out his two candles!
Next Ryan got to open his present (still wrapped in the shopping bag it came in, of course.) He loved it. He is very into tractor and trailers right now, along with Thomas the Train.
He wanted to take his tractor to bed that night. Even though it was low key, he still had a fun day and was very happy. Thanks to all our family members who gave him gifts! You are awesome and we appreciate it!
