Here are some pictures from Levi's Birthday.  He is into everything Legos right now.  Here is my sad attempt at a Lego cake, lol.

I have pretty much given up on trying to get the kids to only open one present in the morning.  It doesn't help that daddy, everyone else wants him to open all of them at once =)
 I love his sweet smile =)

Levi had been wanting a skateboard for some time.  He was so excited to get one and has been cruizn' on it ever since!
After school daddy went out and helped him learn the ropes of skateboarding 
 For dinner he chose his favorite things.  Macaroni and cheese and homemade rolls!
 After dinner, Grandma, Grandpa, Michael, Nana, Papa, Daniel, Charbel and Benji all came over for cake and ice cream.

 He got a lot of legos for his birthday, and he was in heaven!
The Saturday after his birthday we had a little friend party.  The theme he chose? Legos of course.  I had fun planning some fun lego activities (thanks to Pinterest)

When the boys first got there they colored in their Lego coloring books that I made them. Brandon told me this would be the last time Levi could have coloring at his birthday party. I guess he didn't think it was "cool" enough, lol. But the boys seemed to like it ok =)

 Then they played "suck in up" with Legos.  They had one minute to suck as many Legos up as they could with a straw and place them on their plates.

 Then they each built their own Lego cars.  I was so glad that Brandon was there to help.

(Levi is obsessed with the shirt he has on in this picture.  That is why he always seems to be wearing it) =)
Here they all are with their finished cars.
Then it was time to race them!

After that we opened presents.  I love Levi's face in the picture.  He was all shy opening up his cards and presents =)
 His friends were all so generous!

Time to sing happy birthday and have some Lego cupcakes!

 They played outside for a bit to burn off some energy, and then came inside to play Lego Bingo while we waited for parents to arrive.

It was another successful party! All the planning and preparations are worth it when I see how much fun the kiddos have =)
