Officially 3

I say officially, because I often hear that the third year is worse than the "terrible twos", and Easton has been acting kind of like a psycho 3 year old lately...so now his age matches. But when he's not going for awards in tantrum-throwing, he's my sweetest, funniest, smartest, most favorite little boy on the planet!So happy to finally have Buzz! He almost has the movie memorized and quotes it all the time. My favorite is, "That wasn't flying, that was falling with skies." (style, but he says skies).

This picture shows his 3 favorite things. Thomas, Buzz and Woody. He couldn't have cared less about the cupcake. He liked blowing out the candles, but wouldn't eat it. Weirdo. A few days later, our fan attacked the Thomas balloon and Easton was pretty sad.


His friends came over for cupcakes and swimming, and we had a good time. Sad that it was probably one of our last times swimming though. It's finally cooling down a little.
I just love this picture...all the kids with their respective floating devices. They played out there forever...I LOVE swimming!

Thanks to everyone who helped make Easton's birthday special...he's very lucky and was very spoiled! Easton, we love you SO MUCH! Happy Birthday buddy!

I can't believe my baby is 3!!!!!!!!!!!! i love all of the pictures! The thomas balloon was genius!! And i don't know what family this boy belongs to if he doesn't love treats. I wanted to reach through the computer and eat that cupcake myself!!!

Easton and all his little friends are just so adorable. I've been waiting for the birthday post and it was grand!!

Happy Birthday, Easton! I am so sad to hear that three is worse than the terrible twos. I now want to gouge my eyes out since Ethan throws tantrums that make me think he is satan's spawn.

Bringhursts said...

Ummm, but I still love him.

Isn't it amazing how 3 years olds can go from one extreme to another! Super great fits, and super cute things. I have a three year old right now too, also a 2 year old. I want to jump in that swimming pool. It's still 102 here. Cute pictures! Cute babies!

You seriously have the cutest kids ever. I really wish we lived by you guys b/c it seems like Easton and Jackson are a lot alike. Jackson is currently also obsessed with Toy Story... especially Buzz, and goes around singing, "You've got a Friend in me" and of course, what boy isn't in love with Thomas? Happy Birthday Easton!

Kara said...

I want to hear him quote the Toy Story movies. Why don't we go see them in the Theaters this weekend? Oh wait, I won't be in town, as soon as I get back though! I need to find him something for his birthday still! I'll just let the newness of his new toys wear off a little and then give him something to play with so he's not bugging you every second.

Love the Buzz picture and the one of you and the kids is to die for! Happy birthday, Easton! We miss you.

I'm ready to shoot my computer. First it doesn't work then it won't change my identity.

Happy Birthday Easton! I love the "falling with skies"! It is so cute when kids get the saying wrong!

The pic are so adorable! My fav is the one with the three of you! Carly is looking so cute!

rose said...

yay! happy birthday Easton!
yes, our "terrible twos" should be done, and yet they AREN'T!
i wish i knew E was such a huge fan of toy story. (can't wait for 3 to some out!) i would've totally picked up something special for him at d-land. oh well- next time. i'll email you a few picks from the toy story ride though. he'll like them.

Carol and Bruce said...

I'm so glad he had a happy birthday, we love and miss him. I'm glad he likes Buzz and Woody, they are the best! I remember when Kellen loved them so much at about the same age.

Can't wait to see you all in a couple weeks. Carly looks so adorable.

YAY for birthdays and swimming and cupcakes! Happy Birthday Easton. 3's are way worse and way better so have fun.

Ilene said...

Happy Birthday! Can't believe it.

Have fun with 3. I certainly didn't.

Thomas is already getting the 3 year-old attitude too.

Hey, you coming up here soon?

Happy birthday Easton! I can't believe he is three already! I love the pic of all three of you. You all look so cute!! And we are huge Toy Story fans over here, also. The line that seems to get repeated most often at our house is, "Oh yeah? Well good reads ya' liddy!" ("Oh yeah? Well good riddance ya' looney!"). Aren't kids the best?

OREGON SOUTHWORTHS said...

I remember when he was "this big"!! He was just a newborn at some sort of get-together at Christi's back before all you law school folks abandoned us! Hard to believe he is already 3 - looks like he had a great birthday! I envy you still swimming outdoors in the bright sunshine. :)

So cute. Quick question, do you know anything about our 10 year reunion? Can you believe we are this old!
