April 12th, Colton's family party

Our lucky little 2-year old had 3 celebrations in a row!  Woah!  This weekend, Colton's grandparents and uncle and aunts, and GeeGee Sandy showered him with so much love and generosity- I feel so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives in such a big way.  Most importantly, I am so grateful for the godly example and prayers they lift up for our little guy.  I am seriously, soooo blessed.  Thank you to all of you who came to celebrate with us!  Here are some pictures from the day (special thank you to Grandma Kirkwood and Grandpa T for taking such great pictures and sharing them with me!)
The very blessed birthday boy!

The wonderful big sister

Thomas the Train bag!

Woah, what is in there?!

After opening his train table, he was basically glued to it for the rest of the day...
...and has already spent hours playing trains both by himself and with anyone who will play with him :)

He also LOVED this Cars theme water bottle and carries it all over!

When asked what he got when he opened this box, he exclaimed, "WHEELS!"

When did he get so big??

The grandpas were put to work assembling Colton's bike and train table while we made lunch :)

love this shot of Summer and Uncle Eric :)

Menu was an easy choice Cheeseburgers and French Fries...some of Colty's FAVORITE foods!

Our amazing family members that were able to come celebrate with us...Auntie Kristin and Uncle Eric, Grandma and Grandpa T, Summer, Grandma and Grandpa K, Colton, Uncle Javonte, GeeGee Sandy, Daddy (and Uncle Ty and Auntie Sarah came over after work).
Here is a video of everyone singing to Colton:

The birthday boy was talking about this Thomas the Train cake for literally DAYS beforehand!

 Grandma and Grandpa T, Javonte, and GeeGee Sandy stayed all weekend and made lots of memories with the kids.  Both Grandma and Grandpa T are such fun playmates for the kiddos...they played cars, tracks, and trains for a veeeeery long time, read lots of books, had a tractor coloring contest with the leftover tractor coloring sheets from Colton's tractor party, played basketball, and generally "played hard" all weekend ;). 
Reading books
We moved Colton's basketball hoop up to the living room for the weekend and ALL the boys had fun shooting hoops...Colty especially loved using his new Cars theme ball!

Cute picture of Daddy and Grandma T...definitely can see the resemblance between the generations!
Happy Birthday, Buddy!

It was a wonderful celebration for the cutest, most squishable little guy ever. What a sweetheart he was as he opened each gift. And, Summer is seriously such a gracious, sweet big sister. Way more mature than her age. Good job, Kelly, hosting 3 parties in 3 days. I'll bet Mama needs a nap. ;o)
