Presents, presents, and more presents!

Andrew had a GREAT birthday. We brought home Mexican take-out (he requested rice and beans and cupcakes for his birthday dinner) and then opened presents. It took him an hour and a half to open all his presents--not because he had that many presents (although there were quite a few that had been sent from his grandparents and other friends and family) but because Andrew is a careful present opener. He loves to look at every thing he gets and to even play with them a little bit before moving on to the next gift. It's fun to watch how excited he is by everything he opens.

He invited some of his favorite friends:


VERY happy about the shirt that Aunt Tara sent him. The argyle pattern is made using recycled pieces of huipils (the hand woven blouses worn by Guatemalan women).

Super excited about the Lincoln Logs from Uncle Dan and Aunt Lisa:

This is one of my all-time favorite pictures of him...he looks SO old here, though.
