Shawn’s 3rd birthday

I know it’s been a few weeks since Shawn’s birthday. I apologize for posting this so late but life is busy with a 3 year old and 4 year old in our home. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post and pictures below.

On Jan 20, Shawn’s birthday we had some good friends over along with our family including my Dad (Opa to the kids) and my sister Joy to celebrate Shawn’s 3rd birthday. I still can’t believe  he is already 3 years old. I remember visiting him and he was only 8 or 9 months old and then welcoming him into our home almost 10 months later.

It was a fun celebration as we ate homemade lasagna and had cupcakes for dessert, and of course a homemade cake just for Shawn. Everybody enjoyed the food. De-Ann is such a good cook!

After lunch Shawn got to open up his gifts. He was spoiled, and not by us, by what I refer to as his “extended family.” It was funny watching Shawn take his time open up each gift, he even volunteered Caitlyn to be his assistant as he opened up his gifts. He would tear off a piece of wrapping paper and then give it to her, then the next piece and so on until he was done taking all the paper off the gift. She even helped read each of his cards. She was such a good sport. See some of the pictures below.

Shawn was spoiled! Not only did he have great gifts but great friends and family. He even got to see his Aunt Linette and her friend Peter who gave him a tool kit for building a car. I think I (Daddy) enjoyed that gift more than Shawn. haha.

After all the gifts were opened some of the “big kids” played with Shawn’s newest game: Hungry Hungry Hippos. Then Shawn and his little friends also played the game for a while.

We encouraged Shawn to go around and thank everyone who gave him a gift. At first he was very shy but eventually he got around to everyone and gave them a big hug, especially his buddy David!
