"I be 2 on the birthday!"

I can't believe my sweet little boy is 2!
Well, we have had a lot of fun for his birthday.
We are in Utah so we got to celebrate his big day with all of our family! Drake definitely got spoiled for his birthday and we still have Christmas coming in a couple days.

Here are some things my little mister is up to right now:
He LOVES trucks!!! (I seriously think he is obsessed.)
His favorite cartoon is Super Why
He is so much fun to be around: loud, excited, happy!
He talks really well!
He knows and can recognize all the letters in the alphabet.
He can count to 10 and recognize all those numbers too.
He loves to sing!!!
He is a very sweet and affectionate little boy.
But at the same time he is also a rough and tumble boy.
He is a really good little boy, he just has a hard time sharing his trucks.
He is a weirdo and likes to put socks on his hands.
He also likes to wear his cousins (who is a girl) shoes.
He loves his Mr. Bear and monkey "Monk"

He also says the funniest things:
He will get really serious and grab my face and say "you go to time out?"
When Chris and him are playing, Chris sometimes pats his bum and he will turn around and say "no hit me!"
When Chris gets home Drake asks "how your day dad?", "you read books?"
He will also ask "how your sleep?, or "you ok?"

Chris's sister made this Super Why cake for Drake, she is AMAZING!

Drake's Birthday Part One

Yes, there is going to be two parts to Drakes birthday. His birthday isn't till the 18th but since Drake and I are leaving for Utah this weekend we wanted to have a little party for him here in Wisconsin. We are so grateful for our friends that came to Drake's party. It really meant a lot to Chris and I. I have been a little lonely out here the last month or so, but we really do have some great friends out here. So thank you to everyone who came! Drake had so much fun! He wasn't really sure what was going on but he was so excited. He knew it was his birthday party but he didn't really know what that meant. He was just so happy to have all his friends come over and play!
Drake was a little unsure of the candles. He didn't really know what I was doing. And he was so confused when people started singing. He just kept looking around at everyone. Oh, and we just did a bunch of cookies for this party. He will have a birthday cake at the family birthday party.

The chaos of opening presents.

Drake loves trucks and so he was so happy when that is what he got. He lucked out and got a bunch of little firetrucks, a bulldozer, a garbage truck, truck shirts, balls and balloons! What a lucky little boy!

Our house isn't very big so it was a little crammed with everyone here, but so much fun!

Looking at this picture you can tell we had a ton of fun!

Thanks again everyone! And I know you all will be waiting on the edge of your seats for Drakes Birthday Part two, the family birthday party.

It finally snowed here in Wisconsin! We had a amazing fall but now the winter has set in. I don't think it is supposed to get about the high 20s for the rest of the week. SO COLD! Anyways, while Chris was snow blowing the driveway, Drake decided he wanted to help. He found his little lawnmower in the garage and figured that would do the trick. Sorry I didn't get any face shots of Drake. He was so excited he didn't want to stop and look at the camera.
