We invited the family over for dinner last Saturday to celebrate Levi's birthday. We had 12 adults and 7 kiddos and even though the house is a construction zone, it was fun to be able to fit everyone into our larger space. Last year his birthday party was held at a pavillion at a park. To be quite honest, with the house in its current state, I think this year's party venue might have been more rustic than last years.
Levi, and the rest of us, had a WONDERFUL time. Thank you to all who came and made Levi feel so special.

|Look at Alison's little angel face! Milo kept bending slightly at the waist and "talking" to Alison in a high pitched voice. Apparently in his head he is very big kid and she is still a baby.|
|He made this face on purpose when I took out my camera. Of course this picture amuses me to no end. I hope it makes you laugh, too (I'm looking at you, Auntie Lea!!)|
|For entertainment I brought out several of the cardboard boxes that some of our new appliances came in. We're just fancy that way. Isn't my little niece soooo cute?|

|As soon as Joel lit the candles the crowd managed to sing, "Haaap" before Levi blew them out. We gave him a quick birthday candles tutorial and Joel lit them again.|
|The second time Levi patiently waited until we finished singing and then blew them out again. He requested that his piece of the cake come from the clowns face.|
|Joel and crew made this really neat rubbing and framed it for Levi.|
|He got lots of thoughtful presents including a tennis racket, a mini K-state basketbal, games, puzzles, crafts, and this punching bag. He is a very blessed little boy to have so many people loving on him.|
