Evan's Birthday Week

So--it didn't start out as a week-long celebration, but it seems we've done something birthday related most days this week. We kicked off the week on Saturday when we had a birthday dinner with the folks we've deemed our "local family." Evan had a ball running around with his two little friends who were at the party. We ordered pizza, ate cake and let the kids decorate picture frames.

Evan even blew out his candles on his cake! I was going to just make a plain cake, but at the last minute I decided to try my hand at a Cars cake. Evan didn't seem to notice its many imperfections. Just another reason I love him to death!

I tortured Evan all day by not letting him remove Doc or the Sheriff from the cake. Poor guy. He was very happy to finally get those cars off the cake. So much so he did more driving than eating once we finally cut the thing. The cake with Mater was egg-free for Evan's friend who has a cake allergy.

Bryan got tickets to the Deloitte suite for the hockey game on Sunday. We invited quite a few of our friends and had a great time! Evan has been trying to check me into the boards ever since then, though!

My friend Michelle gave me permission to blog this picture of her little girl Jillian (whose birthday is today! Happy birthday Jillian!). The kids had lots of fun running around the suite.

Evan's new cars came with us to the game.

Evan's grandparents and aunts and uncles were too generous, which means Evan received at least one thing in the mail each day this week, adding to his celebration! Yesterday was Evan's actual birthday, so we did a little more celebrating. We met Granny (Bryan's grandma) and Aunt Nanci for breakfast.
Bryan and I hadn't gotten Evan a present, so in the afternoon I took him to Toys R Us and bought a couple of Thomas the Train trains for him. He was so excited! At dinner we sang happy birthday (again) and let him have a piece of leftover cake! Today he took treats to school and we have officially concluded birthday week. :-)

Thank you to everyone who took part in Evan's birthday week. Everyone was so generous! Evan has loved each and every present and is loving having new toys. It is hard to believe two years have passed since we first laid eyes on our little guy. Happy birthday, Evan!
