Happy 2nd Birthday, Zayde!

On Saturday, my sweet little baby turned 2! I cannot believe that he is two already. Zayde has brought us more joy, love, laughter and happiness than we ever imagined. We pray with him every night and thank God for bringing him into our lives.

Due to weather, illnesses and power outages, we postponed his birthday party a week. However, I could not let the day go by without treating our 2-year-old on his birthday. We started the day by making pancakes (his favorite breakfast), and we even put peanut butter and syrup on his! He usually eats them plain. Then, we took him to Chuck E. Cheese for lunch. On our way, I told Zack that we needed a cake. So, we stopped by Rick's Bakery and bought him a little cake- they even gave us 2 candles! Here is our adventure in pictures...

What is he looking at?


This..
(He was mesmerized by the performance.)


But when it came time to meet the star, he was too shy to look up from Mommy's shoulder!



Time for the rides!

The first thing that Zack wanted to put him on was this big truck...



Zayde LOVES to "talk" on the phone. So, he was not too shy when Chuck E. called.


Driving the race car- Go Zayde!


And his favorite part of Chuck E. Cheese??
The tunnels...




He looks like such a big boy to me in this picture. Last year, Daddy had to crawl through the tunnels with him. This year he did it all by himself!




Playin' some B-Ball...



Happy Birthday to Zayde!


We love you so much, baby!!

Looks like he had a great time!

I didn't get any pics of your group beacuse I only took a few while people were setting up around 3ish. Your team got there some time after that. Next year I plan to have someone not in a group come and take pictures the whole time.

AS FOR THE JUDGES..PAUL, PANSEY AND HARRY'S WIFE HAVE NEVER BEEN JUDGES AND IT HAS BEEN 2 YEARS SINCE HARRY WAS. You have to know that I do feel a little bad that we win every year. That's why I make such an effort to have no contact with the judges once they arrive that day. That's also why I have someone who is not in a group take the chili and cookie into the "blind" area. I am proud of my group, they work so hard every year to do a bang up job. I usually have very little to do with our theme or anything, I'm to busy getting ready for the rest of the cook-off.

I never see the scores or anything, but I'm pretty sure if you would have had a little skit or something you would have won first.

hope I didn't sound upset in that last blog...I was replying fast and I think I sounded a little put out about the judge thing. Did not mean to...

Love his sweater!

one thing we are going to do next year is make sure we announce that everyone needs to be quite while each team does their demo. I want to be able to watch everyone, but it's hard to hear when everyone else is being so darn loud.
