Better Late than Never, right?

My poor Joshua.
He has been so blessed as to have a birthday that comes right before Christmas. He really doesn't mind at all, which is good.
Unfortunately he has also been so blessed as to have a mom that goes a bit crazy trying to do it all at Christmas time. Thus the birthday post more than a month sorry Little Man! :)

We did have a very fun time celebrating Joshua's birthday last month. He was so easy to please when it came to party plans; he was pleased as punch with the simplest of things. It's one of those things I just absolutely love about him!

This year he wanted a football birthday party, and he had 5 boys that he wanted to invite (plus Grace, she was the only girl allowed!). It was so fun!
The boys really just wanted to go outside and play football, but since I had gone to the trouble of making party games, I made them play my games first. :) We played 'pin the football in the goal post' and a football version of a cake walk, using different football jerseys instead of numbers. The boys also got to make their own jerseys, which was a lot of fun! Then we opened presents and sent them outside to play a little football, after which we had cake and ice cream...which nobody wanted to eat, because they just wanted to play more football. BOYS!

Here are a few pictures of Joshua on his special day:

He had to make sure he was dressed appropriately for the occasion! :)

And the birthday boy about to open his presents:
We are so grateful to have Joshua in our family! I love celebrating his birthday and being reminded of what a special boy Heavenly Father has blessed us with! I'm so glad he is ours!
