Grey's 2nd Birthday



It's hard to believe that last weekend our little gibblet turned 2! Here's some pictures of how the day went.

First off i made him pancakes, and this time we didn't even" trick" him by mixing sweet potato puree in with it, it was just straight Mrs Butterworth! haha he loved it and i attempted to make a "2" with the batter...not bad.
We had a pretty lo-key morning just playing and hanging out, grey really liked his decorations and was asking often to kiss Elmo (the ballon)

here's the birthday boy before his party.and the cake...it fit into the theme of the party...yep you guessed it ELMO!
grey quickly tried to sneak a taste of his cake...
Naturally he had to have the piece with his own name on it.
After cake and ice cream it was on to presents, and grey was pretty excited to open them.
Here's grey trying to "magic doodle" his arm while rocking out his new guitar.
Heres Grey and his cous Evan, he must think evans' ear is the on button.
He got a new elmo video and was watching it with pop.
After a very exciting and eventful day, here he is relaxing with mommy.

Onto the next day...before all the snow melted we hit up the hill at grandma and pop's house and we took grey for a ride. Lets just say the run was intense, but that didn't stop us, Grey laughed the whole way down. (so did i) :)




And finally heres a little video that highlights some of the birthday events!


love from the Gibbs'

Happy Birthday Grey! I love his little voice, he sounds like such a big boy. Time flies too quickly, this last year has absolutely gone too fast.

Aww, very cute! Nate used to cry at the birthday song too--why??? :) Daddy and Grey are both very brave for going down that hill!

Getting cuter and cuter which does not seem possible as cute as he is. My heart just melted as he said his name and got into that crawling stance! :) So very proud of your little man and you guys. What a blessing to have you guys as friends. Happy Birthday again Greyson. Hugs from the Orrs in Cali.

Happy Birthday Grey!! What an awesome birthday, that kid is just too amazing!

Stephanie said...

What a big boy! Looks like you guys did it up Michigan style, complete with some snow and sledding (that looks like an awesome hill, Nate and I have got to get back up there so we can try it out one day!) Nate has the same Elmo cake for his 2nd birthday-we still have the Elmo and Big Bird cars! Also good to see that Nate isn't the only one who gets upset when everyone sings "Happy Birthday". :) Love you guys!!!
