Jace turns 3...Gage turns 13!!!

This is Jace waiting patiently for us to get all the kids together so he can open his gifts.


He loves these finger skateboards.


Spike The Dinosaur... We were so excited to get this for him.  Anytime you asked him what he wanted for his birthday he would tell you he wanted the dinosaur that talked, walked, roared... then he'd start acting it out for you. At night we'd tuck him in and his last words would be about the dinosaur and all the things he could do with it.  So the night before his birthday we went out and bought it.  We brought it home, put it together, got it all charged for the next day.  Instead of wrapping the dinosaur we decided to wrap just the controller to and let him find the dinosaur hiding in the front room.  So he opens the controller and is so excited because he KNOWS its the controller for the dinosaur.  He pushed the buttons and got it to walk out from next to the couch,that's when he decided this dinosaur is actually pretty SCARY up close! It didn't stop him from playing with it...he just wanted to play with it from a distance.  Anytime it started to get too close to him he would take off in the other direction.  This first picture is about as close as he liked to be to him.


We did finally get him to take a picture with Spike but we had to turn him OFF first.  I am happy to say 2 weeks later him and Spike are friends and he will now touch him even if he's ON. :)


For dinner that night Jace's choice of restaurant was...McDonalds (no surprise there).

After dinner we went back to our house to have some Birthday Cake/Brownie.  He wanted his cake to be a dinosaur cake...this is what I came up with.  He was excited about it and STILL talks about his dinosaur cake.

Sharing his cake with Spike.  For this picture we had to promise him that we wouldn't turn him on.


A few days later Jace and Gage got a package in the mail from there cousins. This is such a cute knee hockey set.  The kids have been having fun with this,


Gage got his favorite thing in the whole world... Money/ Gift Card!


On Sunday we had a combined party at our house for Jace and Gage with both sides of our families .
