Over the past week, Luke and Liam attended Vacation Bible school at our church. At the end of Bible school, they had a short program and root beer floats afterwards to celebrate the week. They also did a fundraising project to raise money for people in need and the reward (for the kids bringing in their spare change) was that the youth leader would throw a pie in the face of two college age counselors. I am not sure Finn will ever forget the "pie in the face." He talked about it all night and all the next day and kept asking me, "o.k.? O.k. momma, they o.k.?" It was hilarious how concerned he was about these people getting a pie in their face.
Aside from his immediate family, some of Finn's favorite people are Kirsten and Kortney (both good friends of mine), Kevin and Melissa (his godparents), and a neighbor friend (Maddie). One of Finn's favorite activities is to do "Hots" with Kevin. "Hots" is basically doing a bonfire and roasting marshmallows and making smores. Finn mostly loves roasted marshmallows, but occasionally he will eat them with chocolate and graham crackers too.
We celebrated Finn's birthday with a few of his favorite people over the weekend and he had such a good time. He really loved having everyone sing "Happy Birthday" to him (so much so that we sang it twice). He loved blowing out his candles and was so excited to get presents. He isn't a big fan of cake, but every time we mentioned having his birthday party he said three things: "cake, hots, and Lilla." He went with me to order his puppy paw print cake so I think that is why he was so excited. "Hots" is his term for having a bonfire and roasting marshmallows. And finally, "Lilla" refers to the Weigel family (his godparents) that he loves to be around.
Happy 2nd Birthday sweet Finnegan! We all love your smile, your loving personality, your strong opinions, and all the funny things you do.
