Collin is 2 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

His birthday is today, the picture was taken last week for today's birthday post. Isn't he beautiful!!

When Collin got up this morning he was really cranky, but for some reason *wink* *wink*, his mood changed when saw his birthday present. HMMM??

After he had played with all of his new tools, we made our way downstairs for his special birthday breakfast. I always make the kids something special for breakfast on their birthday. I throw all of the nutrition stuff out the window, and spoil them!! They love it, of course and I love it too. So, I made them french toast on homemade bread with lots of butter, syrup and coolwhip. When Collin saw his yummy breakfast, he grinned and started laughing. It hardly hit his tray before he had most of the whipped cream in his hand, headed for his mouth. They also got to watch tv during breakfast, Collin picked Elmo's World.

I pulled the work bench out of the attic so the tools could be used on something. Collin played forever, until that crazy breakfast caught up with him and I found him like this. :)

After a while, Aunt Megan came over to eat homemade pizza with us for a special birthday lunch. We ate in the backyard and played in the dirt a while. Then it was time for a bath and then straight to bed for a nap.

I am so thankful for such an amazing 2 year old. Collin is now really starting to speak for himself and he is showing a lot more independence. He is a bit of a challenge at times, but he is such a blessing.
I love you Collin!!
