the party.

for our little two year old's party, we chose an elmo theme.
i don't really know how, oh yes, it just came to me---andrea saw a cupcake idea that set our party in the works. 
plus, elmo is really the only show bentley watches.
and he is really cute. 
we had a family party with shawns parents, dj, andrea, & jedidiah, my meema & poppa, & my mom, jeff & siblings.
we will be having another party at the lake in a few weeks with my dad & the burkes.
it was a fun sunday afternoon of eating, hanging out (inside), & playing.
bentley had a wonderful day.
at this age (or perhaps forever?), your grandparents & aunts/uncles are your best friends. they are exactly who bentley wanted to spend his day with. 

the day before his birthday, a birthday card from grandmother came in the mail. WITH a gift card. bentley took a nap with his gift card. he was thrilled to get mail with his name on it!

testing out the birthday cups

that picture of kami is so beautiful!
the cupcakes are so vibrant in that picture!
jed should sneak in to the blue chair with bentley every year.
good job, caroline!

what a perfect elmo party!!! bentley is just the sweetest little guy, LOVED seeing him more this summer:)

a conversation the other night after we told the boys it was his birthday:
lane, "bentley really loves me"
gage, "no, bentwee oves me"
lane, "no me"
gage, "no me"
...you get the picture. sigh.
and it ended with lane saying, "but bentley came to MY birthday party and not your gage so he really loves me."
oh boy!
