the boy who loves elmo.

It seems that the theme of the birthday is more important than the actual birthday in our home this year. As soon as a theme is decided upon, all the little helpers go into decorating mode to make it the best birthday. 
For River’s b-day, it was the obvious: Elmo. Let me just clarify-- I am not an Elmo kind of Mom. I have nothing against Elmo; its just that he’s not my kinda thing. But River has had a love for Elmo since he was even smaller. 
So, for his birthday, Ethan and I took him to buy Elmo decorations and all the kids did the rest to make it a grand Elmo birthday. To top it off, the kids made a bunch of Elmo related birthday hats. 
I had a blast making and decorating his cake. It might not be pinterest worthy, but it was great for River’s 3rd birthday. And it was delicious!!  
By the way, all the gifts were Elmo too. River had a grand 3rd birthday.

Awwww sweet River! This post brought a tear to my eyes (you know why). He absolutely could not get any cuter! I love that he loves Elmo, Jesse LOVED Elmo and those pictures of him dressed in Elmo gear are my favorites:) By the way that cake is totally Pinterest worthy, and I KNOW it tasted GREAT! Wish we were there to celebrate with you guys!:) Love, hugs and Happy Birthday to River- the little boy that hold a special place in my heart!
