Well, my little boy is growing up.  He turned 3 the day after Thanksgiving.  Because we went down to Missouri for thanksgiving to visit Jeffrey's family this year we had a little birthday party for him before we left.  Both my boys are REALLY into cars, but more specifically Race Cars.  So that is what he got for a cake (hand made by his loving mother:).  This year's celebration was the best, because Knightley actually realized it was his special day.  He may not have understood exactly why we celebrate someone's birth day, but he knew it was all about a "special boy's special day."  Every present he opened was his "special present," and he still treats the toys he got on his birthday with extra special care and attention.

Enjoying the cake batter (Knightley likes cake batter more then actual cake).

My beautiful creation.

Complete with rear spoiler.

All race cars have a lightning bolt across the side,

and racing stripes.

By the time we ate the cake, the tootsie roll windows melted :)

The cutest little cake eater ever!

Knightley mostly ate the goodies off the cake instead of the cake itself.

We went to Florida in the middle of October, but are just getting around to posting about it :).  It was a fantastically fun, magical time!!  We hung out with Deb's parents and her brother and sister-in-law and their family.  We went to an alligator farm, the beach, and just enjoyed the wonderful weather.  We then went up to Orlando and went to Disney World for the magical experience, and the next day we went to a children's science center which was great as well!  We loved it and our kids loved it.  It is all documented in the video below that Deb put together.
