200th post...

...or aka "canon's 2nd birthday party!" we had his party this past sunday. it was toy story themed (his newest obsession!). he spent the weekend in muskogee so i spent the morning getting everything ready and decorating with my mimi. canon showed up around 1:30...very tired and very fussy! i changed him into his birthday shirt and got him geared up to party!!!

i worked on this banner for 6+ hours last week. it was so worth it, but took forever! about 3 weeks ago, we changed the theme from balls to toy story after he watched the entire movie. it was his first feature film that held his attention. plus, lane and i are toy story fanatics :) it worked out that toy story 3 is coming out soon so there was soooo much toy story stuff to decorate with!




we were going to eat outside, but considering it was 90+ degrees out, we moved it inside, i was bummed. i love sitting out on the porch, but it would've been miserable. the big people had hamburgers, baked beans, deviled eggs and chips. canon and ella had his favorite...toy story macaroni and cheese and milk in toy story sippee cups!





this is how canon says he's two! he says, "ooooooo" while holding his hands together to make 2.
even though canon still doesn't know what a birthday party is, i wanted to play a game. with much resistance, lane finally gave in and helped me create mr. potatohead! it was so funny watching all the adults play. i forgot how awful it feels to be dizzy and not be able to see.




canon showing us his cake. let me just say that this was the worst $30 ever spent. i don't know why i strayed from our trusty merritt's bakery, but i felt like trying somewhere different. i found a place with a super cute website so i went with them. i was so disappointed in how it looked and even more so in how it tasted. everyone agreed! it had a wintergreen/almond extract flavor...yuck.
while we're singing "happy birthday"
he actually blew it out!
