Shawn’s birthday party

Friday, January 20 was Shawn’s actually birthday but because Saturday was a better day for everyone especially our families we decided to have his party today. And what a party it was.

As we were waiting for many of the guest to arrive Shawn opened many of the gifts he rec’d. We all enjoyed our newly renovated basement and Shawn’s new Thomas the Train set. Lots of pictures to prove it. Please take note of the first picture of the train set, that is what it looked like before the kids got a hold of it, that’s the second picture. haha!

When everyone finally arrived we enjoyed a fantastic meal De-Ann prepared–lasagna, bruschetta and veggies and cupcakes for dessert. Shawn even got his own cupcake with 2 candles on it while we sang happy birthday to him.

After supper Shawn opened open some more gifts and cards and you can see from the pictures he thoroughly enjoyed himself. As well some of our friends got into the act in helping him unwrap some of the gifts. Shawn patiently opened up each gift and shared each piece of paper with anyone nearby. It was cute to watch.

One of the many gifts Shawn rec’d was a remote control crane from De-Ann’s Dad (Grandpa to Shawn). You’ll see that Faith really took to actually operating the crane.

Another gift I wanted make mention is also highlighted in the pictures below is a card from Denita (a very special lady to both Shawn & Faith–they love her) with 2 loonies in it. This was so important because it showed how great a gift DJ gave to both kids this past Christmas. He gave them each a piggy bank that was designed specifically for them. So Shawn got to go upstairs with DJ to put the loonies in the bank. As DJ says, this is Shawn’s college fund. Love it!

It was a fantastic day altogether and one of the highlights was the meeting of two grandpa’s (Grandpa Nykiforuk and Opa DeGraaf) for the first time–it only took 19 years.

A huge thank you to all our friends and family for a fantastic birthday party for Shawn. I can’t believe Shawn is 2 years old and has been with us for over 6 months!
