So for Canyon's 3rd birthday dinner, I made him homemade chicken nuggets, tater tots, & cantaloupe. The whole family loved this one. (The chicken nuggets are ALL my kids' favorite dinner.)
He was pretty excited about it all.
After dinner, we let him open his presents from our friend Nancy. Nancy is our Fairy Godmother who send the kids lots of clothes & shoes. We love her for it.
Sure enough, Canyon got 4 pairs of new shoes, & TONS of new clothes. He was pretty happy about it.
The next day, we had Trek's 2 sisters & his Auntie come to our house for a "real" birthday party with cake & presents. It's been SO nice having family close for the first time in forever.
Canyon is completely obsessed with 2 things right now:
Wreck It Ralph
& Monsters Inc.
I figured Monsters would be a cute party theme, so we went with that for his cupcakes & party supplies. He was pretty excited about it. His favorite word is "Mike Wazowski" so it was pretty hilarious listening to him say it over & over again.
I made some monster cupcakes with eyes & horns in the Mike & Sully colors. He told me they were
I love watching little kids blow out candles. He still hasn't quite figured it out & sister had to "help" him out a bit. What a cutie.
We loved having Auntie Marc here for his special day.
Auntie Triskin & Auntie Tylee brought ALL the boys super soaker water guns. I had a feeling I was going to be cleaning up water for days after that. . . & I was right.
They also brought Canyon an Angry Birds game.
Mamoo got Canyon a cute little laptop toy.
And Mimi & Baba got him a drill/airplane building set & a magnetic puzzle.
Auntie Cari & Uncle Justin got him a ball to bounce around outside on.
Opa & Oma got him an Avengers pillow, a hulk Infinity toy, & a Hulk poster for the boys' super hero bedroom.
Lorien bought him a Wreck-It-Ralph book with her own money.
Halfway through unwrapping presents, Tylee managed to fill up the water guns & started a huge war IN & OUTSIDE our house. I have to admit, it was pretty epic. By the end, Bladen had the hose, & Tylee & Trek had the waterguns. The poor boys just watched from the sidelines as Trek & Tylee fought to the soaked death with those things.
Then we went back inside for more present opening. Auntie Marc donated money to his college fund & brought him some candy, a minion, & a Thor toy.
Trek & I got him Wreck It Ralph Infinity toys & the movie. Auntie Char & Uncle Jay also donated money to his college fund & Grandma K. sent the most adorable card with $10 inside.
After all the excitement, we all went out to dinner together. Family time is the best.
Happy 3rd birthday Canyon. We are SO happy we have you. You complete our little family.
