Landon's 3rd Birthday

Landon turned 3 about 3 weeks ago. He was pretty excited about it too. For the last couple of months, I've been "prepping" him by telling him that on his birthday he was turning 3. So everytime someone would ask him how old he was (which for some reason, a lot of people did in the last couple months) he'd tell them he was "3 on birthday". The excitement for birthdays started because his cousin was turning 3 seven weeks before him and he called her up and "talked" with her. Since then, he was wondering when his would be.

Me and John are such great parents. We knew exactly what Landon would want on his birthday. Balloons! So we blew up 25 balloons and got him a placemat with sesame street characters on it. He doesn't like his plate on the placemat so it defeats the purpose but oh well.

My parents got him a ball (the kind you see in the grocery store) and a bubble blower which he immediately used until all the bubble solution was gone.

From John's parents, he got some clothes and trains which he's getting into.

One of the things he really liked were the cards he received. One had turtles that were holding balloons (which of course he loved) from John's parents and an elmo card from my Grandparents. He loved looking at them and letting me know over and over again that there were balloons and elmo!

I'm such a great cook and all that I decided to buy Landon's birthday cake. It had ... can you guess ... BALLOONS on it. He LOVED it.

Video for CA Grandparents! And anyone else who's really bored. It's just us singing happy birthday and if you want to know what the cake looked like, this is it. We forgot to take a picture of the cake beforehand.
