for Bobi

At mickeys birthday party as I was taking pictures, my littlest sister, Bobi kept asking if it was going on the blog, then she insisted I take a good picture of her and Amy to put up, after about twenty tries this is what we came up with.

mickeys four, three times!

this is mickey with his creepy crawlers he made, i love his eyes, you can tell he really thinks they are cool!

another funny eye picture!

here he is putting the goo in the mold, concentrating hard, this is the only one Jason let him do by himself, I think Jason enjoyed the toy just as much as Mickey.

this was the torg family party the first of all celebrations, grandma and grandpa gave him the scooter and Lincoln logs. Megan and Brady gave him the helmet to keep him safe.

mickey wanted a smile face cake, so this is what we came up with, while waiting for everyone to come he kept getting up on the chair and looking at it like this, I think he really liked it, He didn't JUST look though he poke it, then proudly told me he put polka dots on it!

we gave mickey a party with friends this year, his first. he thought he was so cool, he tells everyone about the sponge bob "pinana", that Jason ended up having to break open.

we decorated the room to look like we were in the water. Mickey enjoyed making the sea creatures.

this is Dahlia at the end of the Webb party that we had after the kid party (the last of the celebrations)

grandma and grandpa gave him a box full of art supplies, mickey loves cutting, coloring, painting, and gluing. as you can tell so does the rest of my family. here they all are (except kyle who couldn't make it) gathered around our kitchen table making valentines and such.

here is mickey opening the sponge bob fishing pole Kayla gave him, she also gave him a Nerf gun, that I was nervous about, for some reason everybody thinks it is SO fun to make me the target with things like that.
Mickey also got to celebrate his birthday at preschool, where he made his own birthday crown, got to sit in the birthday chair all day, shared some funfetti cupcakes, then I went at the end to read the kids one of mickeys favorite books and bring some pictures of mickey to tell the kids about. Mickey thought he was so cool having his mom in class, it will be sad when he starts to get embarrassed by me. I am enjoying it while it lasts.
