Choo-choo Look Who Turned Two!

Yes, like every blog post starts, I am behind.  So I am trying to get a little caught up so I can start the new year off up-to-date... whatever that means!

Our little boy, Josiah, turned TWO earlier this month. His birthday celebration started over Thanksgiving... so we spread it out over several weeks.  Josiah is very into "choo-choo" this year so that what most of his birthday celebrations centered around.

Josiah wasn't too sure when all the attention was on him while my family sang "Happy Birthday."

But he had no trouble blowing out the candles.

Mmmmmm, cake! He also had not trouble downing a piece of cake and anytime from here on out when you asked him about his birthday he would say "cak!"

Cousin Brece liked the cake too... even though this picture doesn't look like it!

On Josiah's actual birthday, we celebrated lunch with friends down at Fritz's in Crown Center. What better way to celebrate than at a restaurant where a "choo-choo" delivers your food.

Josiah and his friend Georgia waiting to be seated at Fritz's.

Watching the train go round and round at the gingerbread house display in Crown Center.

Doing a little coloring at the Crayola store.

Listening to some kids singing Christmas songs. (Georgia decided to direct the choir!)

Playing outside at Crown Center on the big wooden tractor.

...and the fire truck too.
That evening we celebrated at home with friends from our community group. We had another "cake" too!  This time a Rice Krispie train cake.

I ate the whole thing!
We finished off the evening by letting Josiah eat some of his cake... he ended up eating the whole train car!

What a wonderful birthday weeks Josiah had. We also celebrated with Jeff's family that weekend after Josiah's birthday, but Aunt Steph took those pictures because I forgot the camera.

Not sure what Josiah is going to do without a present to open come January. The kid has been so loved and has had a present to open almost everyday since Thanksgiving!

We love you Josiah! Can't wait to see what year 3 has in store for you!
