Philip's Birthday/the Rest of Valentines

Here are a few pictures from what we did on Valentines, followed by our little birthday surprise for Philip...

Sweet girl with her Daddy
(My friend, Jen, made the cute shirt)

I couldn't resist this shirt on the $3 rack at Walmart and the kids love it =)

The kids hadn't had the jeep out in a while, so we charged it up and they had a blast!  Keenan hardly fits anymore!

Caleb Loved it!

Goofy kids

Moriah at the wheel

Caleb's first time DRIVING!

Fun heart shaped lollipops =)



Philip came home and said that "Publix was having a deal, where if you buy three pizzas, you get three roses for free!"  Ha!  I'm a little suspicious.

A few days ago, Moriah said Philip, "What kind of birthday are you going to have, Daddy?" (she doesn't realize that adults don't really get "themed" parties).
Philip jokingly said, 'I can't decide between Lego and robots."
I said, "You know, you could easily do both."
Moriah said, "And Michigan!"
Philip laughed and said, "Okay, Michigan Lego Robots, then"

The kids and I put our heads together, and this is what we came up with...
(We set it all up in the office and surprised him when he woke up)

A Michigan Lego Robot party!

I was fairly happy with the Lego robot I built 
(with the help of Keenan and Moriah finding me all the right pieces and cheering me on)

Fun Lego topper

Back side of the cake

Keenan made this

Card from Keenan

With three of his biggest fans

He only got one candle for each 11 years =)

...and when it was time to cut the cake, we still had one surprise left! =)

Happy Birthday, Philip!   We love you soo much!
