Craiger waited patiently all day long for his sisters to get home from school so we could celebrate his birthday with dinner & presents.
He was SO excited for me to make his favorite dinner:
Cantaloupe, Apples, & Strawberries
The Potter's are big pizza lovers. Bladen & Craiger can eat an entire pizza between the two of them. I'm not looking forward to their teenage years. They're going to eat me out of house & home.
My girls also love pizza. They get the pizza love from their daddy. (NOT ME. . . I hate pizza)
Even Canyon likes his fair share of pizza crust goodness.
After dinner, we all gathered around & let Craiger open his presents from family. Since Daddy is still gone, we made sure he was on video chat so he could watch Craiger's excitement.
|Mimi & Baba got him a letter laptop.|
|Taya, Bladen, & Canyon got Craiger a big sticker book where|
there are papers of giant place settings & tons of food stickers
that Craiger can put all over the plates, bowls, & cups.
|Auntie Char & Uncle Jay got him Hungry|
|Mamoo got him a great elephant game|
|Auntie Cari & Uncle Justin got him a fishing|
game he's been wanting for some time now.
|Lorien spent her allowance money & got him a mosaic craft set|
like hers. . . but for a 3 year old. They've been crafting together
all morning long.
|Cadence bought Craiger a transformer dinosaur with her allowance.|
|Trek & I got him a balance bike to help him with his balance|
before we get him a real bike. We're hoping this quickens the
bike learning process for him (& maybe Bladen too)
|He was pretty excited.|
|But his favorite present of the day was from|
Opa & Oma. They got him a HUGE transformer
T-Rex robot dinosaur that obeys your voice
commands. It's super cool.
|He played with it all day long & slept with it|
last night. (He kept getting mad because it was
too big for his bed & it kept falling out.)
Happy Birthday Monster!! We love you so much & can't wait for your big boy Batman birthday party in 2 weeks when daddy comes home.
