Elijah's birthday fun!

These are some fun pics from Elijah's birthday. We had a wonderful time celebrating him all day long. He of course enjoyed the extra attention as well. Jonah struggled with it, but I guess that isn't too surprising!

The birthday boy eating delicious blueberry muffins compliments of daddy. (Of course he had to put a candle in and blow it out!)

Doing the "Hokey Pokey" with Grandma. This has become a popular dance in our house after the recent wedding we attended.

Lunch at Space Aliens with mom, dad, Jonah, Grandma Irene, Auntie Laura and Grandma Teresa. It was even Token Tuesday!

Opening presents. Notice the "helper" who probably opened more of the presents than the birthday boy!

Playing games.

Jonah hit a jackpot and we got 75 tickets from one play!

We had bible study that night and celebrated with some delicious cake and ice cream.
(Notice the shirt he is wearing Prachars? Yep, it is still a popular choice from the costume box in our home. Thanks!)

Making a wish...

Grandpa and Grandma came over with their present...

Spiderman hotwheels! The beloved "bus" is being saved for the baby.

What a day we had! All day we kept asking Elijah who was turning three today, and he would slowly raise his hand with a giant smile on his face! By the end of the day he thought he was 3 1/2 though! He also wondered when his next birthday was. Oh, to be a kid again!
