Alex's 2nd Airplane Birthday Party {that never took off!}

Our little guy turned 2 this past weekend! It's hard to believe it's been 2 years already ~ he's grown so fast. In the company of his older brothers he walked faster, climbs higher and has the strongest character of all 3. I absolutely LOVE this little guy wiht all my heart. He gives the best kisses, has great dance moves and i simply love spending my day with him. He's really busy but loves adventure and going outside.

We had a really fun airplane themed birthday party planned for him, but we had to cancel. Our family had been down with a stomach virus for about a week and he just kept getting sick, up until the night before his big day. God is teaching me a lot about making plans, but ultimately submitting to His plan.

Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.
Proverbs 19:21

So little guy and i stayed home from church and he enjoyed playing with his new toys. We enjoyed time together as a family and played a paper plane game with the big boys... having 3 kids kinda gives you a 'party all in one'... every day of the year! We had lots of food prepared for our guests, so we had lunch and dinner all ready! We ate lots of cupcakes and our sweet neighbour gave Alex his birthday cake as a gift. It showed up just before dinner and he LOVE it! He tried to take the plane right off the top. We were so blessed by her thoughtfulness and kindness.

he also got this fun vintage little people 

... and hasn't stopped playing with them since! 

play doh for our party guests... a good reason to meet up with friends soon!

the boys LOVED these 'special straws' and water bottles for dinner! 

so fun she had a Canadian & American flag added ~ since Alex holds both passports!

 even though he was sick, he was a super happy kid all day!

he did a great job blowing out his candles!
