Birthday Pictures

I think Elijah had a good birthday.
We were taking some birthday pictures out side on the swing and I caught a real smile!

Look who surprised us with a visit on Elijah's birthday! Auntie Crystal!

Grammy came for dinner and Geoff made a delicious dinner of ribs, sweet potatoes and a bunch of other good stuff!

Elijah just wanted ice cream so we put a candle on a bowl of ice cream for him to blow out.

Then after dinner Elijah opened gifts.
Crystal gave him a John Deer plate, bowl and cup. His grandpa and grandma gave him hand puppets and a Steve Green dvd. Grammy gave him some money and Geoff and I gave him some new clothes.

The first picture is so so cute! I love his sweet smile, and it looks like he had a great birthday surrounded by family.

Go to the Ant? It's awesome! Glad Crystal is encouraging the John Deere thing - he'll be a farmer yet :P
