The party!

I'm definitely behind. Little Elvis had his second birthday party shindig this weekend. It was a small affair, which turned out to be a good call on our part -- he decided not to nap (this is becoming way too regular of an occurrence!) Here he is inspecting the birthday cake, but ultimately deciding not to eat any. His party was a football theme. My grandmother asked me why I didn't pick a Cars theme and I told her that it was a whole lot easier to make a football-shaped cake than a car-shaped cake.

Bob's been working on teaching Little Elvis how to blow out his candles. He did it... with his nose. He will gladly play a harmonica with his mouth, but somehow that is different.
Little Elvis got the Cars DVD from his Grandpa Stew. Here he is enjoying the movie with his Daddy.
Here he is playing with some of his other loot -- lots of trucks and a souped up car that goes backward, hops, plays music, and does all sorts of great things.

Little Elvis was also very into his birthday cake the day after his party. He's really getting into saying "Cheese" for the camera.

Other new things for this sweet boy. He gets very frustrated if you call a truck a car. Or if you call his taxi, car. And if you call any of his work trucks by their proper name (dump truck or digger), watch out!

Looks like it was a fun party. That's funny he didn't want any part of his cake until the next day. It made me laugh how he is particular about what you call his cars/trucks.

That is super neat that he knows the differences between the kinds of cars. I still can’t believe that it’s been two years already. We haven’t had our party yet. Still working on it. We have colds here recently, and I remembered that you have already taught Little Elvis how to blow his nose. How in the world did you do that? He will suck in, but he won’t blow out!
