Happy 2nd Birthday, Landen!!!

Today Landen turned TWO! Oh my, that cannot be right! I remember being pregnant. And I remember sleepless nights...to think he is two already is so sad to me.  I guess it's because he's the baby and I know he's the last! We had an Elmo (and Sesame Street) birthday party tonight and he had such a great time!  He got TONS of Elmo stuff which just made his day.  It was so cute watching him open all of his presents--he loved it every time he opened a box and Elmo was in there! I made his cake and although it came out pretty good, I wasn't 100% pleased.  The icing was a little runny so it wasn't very smooth.  Thank goodness Elmo is supposed to look furry, huh? Plus, red is the absolute hardest color to dye icing and so he isn't quite the red I wanted, but guess what? Landen loved him and that's all that matters! He was so tickled when he saw his Elmo cake!
Elmo Cake! Not perfect, but just right to a 2 year old! :)

Landen's new hat and singing Elmo (p.s. he insisted on putting the hat on himself!!)

Reading one of his new books--he said it was a big scary dog (it's Clifford)...

New guitar like Bubba!!

His new Elmo blankie my Mom made him--he would NOT let it go!! We had to fight to get this pic!

Cake-cake time...I couldn't get the paper off fast enough for him!

All of his new Elmo goodies! He was in heaven!! And no two were the same!! :)
