Happy Birthday Caleb!!!

Oh, how sweet it is to have the kids home! Last night seeing them and hugging them was so unbelievable that I wont even try to describe it in words because I know that I would never do it justice! Needless to say that today has been wonderful...I knew we had cute kiddos but today I really appreciated just how darling they are!To start out birthday celebrations I got to sneak in and wake him up and he and I ate sugary cereal for breakfast all alone! He got to go to preschool where he was swarmed by his teachers and friends who missed him. Davis and I got to hang out one on one for a couple of hours and when I picked Caleb up from Preschool we went and met John for lunch. As I was in line Caleb said he was going to get us a booth and took off before I had a chance to argue with him and he found an empty table across In n Out and jumped up and down yelling about the "great" table he had snagged. By the time I ordered and paid Caleb had made friends with everyone around him. One couple when I walked up said, "you must be Lisa, Caleb's Mom." I looking surprised and speechless because I didn't recognise these people but they quickly explained that Caleb had told them all about me and how we were waiting for "John who drives a truck." (this is why Caleb has not been taught our phone number yet...he doesn't understand that there is a limit to info you should tell people).

One thing I love about kids is their total lack of holding back and embarrassment. Caleb was talking to 2 kids at a table nearby and told them it was his birthday and the boys said, "well, we will sing you the birthday song." They then proceeded to sing to him in In n Out Happy Birthday on the top of their lungs and their sweet parents and a few other kids joined in.

Toys, trampoline, a new movie, yummy dinner, presents, and the rest of the day was a success!Lots of transformers....A very cool helmet and racing toy...

Party on. Glad they made it home in one piece. After spending so much time with them, their stories really pop. I can totally hear his little voice talking to people around him. Probably told them he was hungry as well. Happy Birthday buddy, you make my heart so happy!

Fun pictures! Looks like he had a great birthday! BTW, Caleb looks so much older in that first picture. He just looks so mature!
