August in February

My little guy turned 2 years old yesterday.
We woke up to a freezing house, the igniter on the furnace had cracked during the night.
It was 57degrees inside, which for us, is practically freezing.
We made hot chocolate and August shivered through breakfast determined to eat his donuts. He said, "August's birthday, August's birthday over and over."

The furnace guy came and fixed the heat by 10:30 that morning, thank goodness for fast service, and the house started to feel a bit better. I watch a little boy and girl a couple times during the week and so they were with us that morning. Daxton and August had fun helping me make the cake. I think the beaters were a hit!

What cute little guys!

Later, after a long nap and the girls and Dad were home from school, we opened presents. August was hysterical. He wanted to stop and play with each new toy before moving on to the next. The girls had a hard time with this. They wanted him to get a move on it. They have different approaches when it comes to gift opening.
August ended up with way too much stuff, but he loves every single thing (except the shirt...he didn't even bother to finish opening that gift.)

August loves cars. He is pretty much obsessed with cars. It's pretty fun. So, it really wasn't too hard to decide what cake to make. A CAR CAKE. When he woke up from his nap and saw his cake, he was very interested in it. He sat at the table and looked at it and talked all about it and even had a small taste of it. He sat there and said over and over, "August's car cake. August's birthday, car cake, donut." It was funny to listen to. I think he really liked it.

This picture isn't the best quality, I cropped it way too much and then blew it up, but just look at that face! He was going to make sure every bit of that cake got from his spoon into his mouth!

It was a fun day and I think August knew something special was going on. We have had a few birthdays in the past few weeks, so he kind of got the hang of it and knew what to do.
We sure love you August.
