Boys party

So this year I decided not to do the friend party and we only had a family party.  I was going to only do cake and a couple of treats, but then I was feeling bad and decided I needed to do a little more than that. 
Ashton decided that he wanted a Cars cake again (he had one when he was 2) and I couldn't talk him out of it. So he got a cars cake and Noah got a Thomas cake.

My mom came and got the boys on Thursday night and she kept them till Saturday and brought them home before the party.  That was awesome I was able to get everything done I needed to on Friday so much easier without the boys around.  When she brought them home I found out Noah got sick while she had him and threw up the one day and then had diarrhea the next day.  The poor kid I can't seem to get him better, I don't understand why he is getting so sick all the time.  So Noah was not his usual self he wanted lots of cuddles. 

While we were opening gifts Noah had a little melt down, it was actually quite funny.


I tried hard not to go overboard with gifts, we gave them each two small things on their actual birthdays then we saved the big gifts for the party.  With their birthdays being so close to Christmas it is hard to have all these toys and presents show up all at once.  I guess it is a good thing I went through their toys and gave away a huge bag filled with toys that weren't played with anymore.  Noah wasn't totally getting the unwrapping of the presents, it was a good thing Ashton was there to help him out. 

Noah got play dough, Lego's, and a firetruck.  Ashton got Lego's, a dragon boat, a leapster and a game for it. I realize that even though we got the boys different presents, they are going to play with each others things.  It is going to be interesting to see how it all plays out and how they fight over the new toys.  Overall it turned out to be a great day and the boys had fun so that is what matters in the end.
