I had the best birthday party the other day! I'm 2 years old. That's big...
I was so happy when I got to Grandpa and Grandma Gravitt's and saw everybody there to help me celebrate.
I looked around and saw my cousins Cole & Micky!
My Grandpa & Grandma Gravitt.
My Auntie Amber, GG Paula and Pa!
I saw my Ma!!
And of course my momma and daddy were there too.
As soon as I got down I made a beeline for the laundry room. I love the buttons on the washer and dryer. I love to watch them spin. But I'm not supposed to touch those buttons...
So I got scolded... That made me sad.
I got over it quickly though. There were other things to do. Presents to open.
Wow! I'm so big now I got my own computer!
Momma's probably hoping this will stop me from messing with her laptop.
This is pretty cool, but momma's hopes better not be up about that.
I needed help getting some of my new toys out of their packages. I told momma, "open" with my hands.
This new train . . .
. . . is totally cool!!
Sometimes you just need a break from unwrapping. I chose to recharge by riding my horse I got for Christmas.
I rode so fast the camera could hardly catch me for a picture.
Everybody cheered for me!
I wore that horse plumb out. So while the horse had a nap- I opened more presents.
I love books! So does my cousin Cole.
I made sure he knew this ladybug book was mine too.
After the books I opened a barn full of farm animals!!
And then colors and a coloring book.
Grandma helped me color. . .
I decided to taste the pretty yellow crayon.
It wasn't very yummy.
Then I went back to my horse to work on him with a tool Grandpa used to put him together at Christmas. I love tools and working on stuff.
Speaking of tools I got a hammer and something to pound!
I am wild when I hammer. My cousin Cole almost got hammered cause he was too close to the construction zone.
After the hammer fun I opened . . .
A whole tool set!!
I even have my own safety goggles.
These will keep my baby blues safe while I'm sawing and drilling and stuff.
Everybody made a big deal about how cute I looked and I got a little shy.
After that I surveyed my loot. I got so much stuff there is not time for me to tell you about all of it. But lets just say- I heard momma say she was putting up all of my toys at home to make room for my new ones. Don't worry- she rotates my toys so I'll see my old ones again soon. Momma is smart like that.
The presents kept coming! You guys will not believe what I got next!
A John Deere Tractor of my very own!
It has a pedal that makes it go.
And a steering wheel.
And shovels on the front and the back that I can control with levers.
Man I'm big!!!
I even took my cousin Micky for a ride.
She may have been nervous.
I was worried about her being up there by herself so GG Paula helped me up with her.
My momma put fire in front of me.
Which I thought was a bit foolhardy.
Then I was supposed to blow out the fire after everybody sang.
But I couldn't make a big enough breeze. Ma helped.
I was so grateful about that I fed her cake.
I think she liked it!
I sure did!
All in all that was a pretty awesome birthday party.
Life is good!
