Day 2

Ethan turns 3!!
January 13th was Ethan's 3rd birthday. I no longer have 3 children under 3!

We decorated the house after bedtime, so when morning came, Ethan said, "It's my birthday?"

After church, we headed for good ol' Chuck E. Cheese.

Ethan had 2 requests for his birthday: Balloons and Batman Cake!

Luke really enjoyed Ethan's birthday too! Notice the bare chest? Luke's method to eating - "dive in". We were trying to save his shirt! You would not believe how bad the frosting stains... especially BLACK! (Note to all you cake decorators - I got the Wilson concentrated gel stuff to tint the frosting. It was so much better than food coloring. The colors were so vibrant and I did not have to use that much!!)

Just got caught up with the last two posts! Awesome pictures and stories! Your Luke cracks me up! I love the story of his snowsuit and throwing him on the bed until Ben was ready! I can just hear you laughing at that poor child - I would have done that too! Love the Smith family snowmen too! Oh and I also laughed at how serious Luke was with driving that vehicle at Chuck E Cheese! So Funny!

Happy Birthday Ethan!!!
