Birthday Party

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?

Kids table(s).  I guess they decided to segregate the sexes.

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.
