Reid's 2nd Birthday Party!

WOW... Ben and I can hardly believe that our baby boy is almost TWO! What a pure joy these last two years have been! We decided to celebrate a few weeks early (before the moving craziness set in) with a Thomas the Train birthday party at none other than... McDonald's (Reider's favorite). And I have to say... it was a blast! We kept it small with just family and a few of Reid's little friends, and I think it's safe to say that all the kids had a lot of fun. =)

Here's the birthday boy before the party started while we were setting up... checking out his party hats...

...or eating them...

Reid LOVED all the Thomas decorations and balloons!

And, of course, there was a Thomas the Train cake...

It was a HUGE mistake to show Reid his birthday "happy cake" before the party... he was OBSESSED with eating a piece. We tried to distract him for a little while with air hockey...

...but that didn't last long.

We decided it was his birthday and he could eat cake when he wanted to! So here's Reider... diving into the cake before the party even starts!

I think he liked it =)

With the two loves of my life...

Trying on his party hat as his friends began to arrive...

Let the fun begin! Pictured is Reid, Keagan DeLaPorte (with Siti), Bekah & Grace Wells, and Isabella Higgins (with Jayme)...



Fun with party favors - love these kids so much!


Reider caught sight of the presents that were starting to pile up and wanted to start "opening it"...

Happy Meal time!

The little man eating his favorite food - FRENCH FRIES and DIP!

...and round #2 of cake and "ice creamy"

We'll have many more pics to post from Neely as soon as I get the cd... but for now, here's a little video of the Happy Birthday song =)

Reider, Mommy and Daddy love you so very much and are so proud of the little guy you have become! Can't wait to see what this next year holds!
