I didn't do anything spectacular for his birthday. We went to my mother-in-law's because it would be easier for my mom and family to come there for his birthday, and since Mom was moving to California, I wanted her to see him before she went. I didn't realize she'd move back a month later! So here are some pictures from that wonderful day.

My little super hero boy!
Thomas the Train Busy Book. One of his BEST presents. He loves this thing.
Thomas the Train Wooden Railways from Mom & Dad. Santa will soon be adding to the collection.
And while this next one isn't from Ethan's birthday, it's pretty awesome for my boys. Clint got his first Buck EVER! It was a 9-point with one antler broke off, so it could've maybe been more. And he did it with his bow. Apparently, it was the perfect shot, so the deer went down fast, which makes me feel better about the whole thing. AND I have to say that with all the growth hormone, rising costs, and rising contamination in our foods, I much rather eat something that was harvested practically out of our own backyard (it's right down the road) then something bought in the store shipped in from who knows where. Anyway. Ethan was pretty excited about the deer, too. He asked all kinds of questions! I'm proud of both my boys.
