Andrew's Birthday Week

Thursday afternoon we celebrated Andrew's Birthday with his pre-school. We sang, ate cupcakes and had a great time!
Saturday Andrew wanted to go to Red Robin so he could get some birthday ice cream!  He was so excited, he ate it all himself.
After lunch, we went home and Andrew opened his presents from the family.  Jacob had bought him a monkey from Build-a-Bear.  Emily made the monkey some fun clothes.
Andrew enjoyed all the fun gifts he got from his grandparents.
He is so cute with his monkey.
After opening presents, we ate some cupcakes, and Andrew blew out his 5 candles.
Making a wish. . . and blowing out the candles.
The next Saturday, we had Andrew's party with his friends.
Whenever we asked Andrew what he wanted the theme of his party to be, he said he wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party.  He wanted to invite his three best friends, and the four of them could each be one of the turtles.
We started the party by watching a vintage episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles while the boys ate pizza
(the favorite food of the turtles).
We gave each of the boys a party pack with the mask and weapons of one of the turtles.  
Of course Andrew wanted a pinata', so Kelly made a paper mache' pinata' decorated to look like the head of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.  
The boys used their turtle weapons to break open the pinata'.
Then we opened presents.The boys all had a lot of fun.  It was a great party.
We love Andrew and we're glad he's in our family.  It was a fun week celebrating his birthday. --emily
