The boys were so excited to give Harkin their presents. At first he wasn't sure what to make of it all but by the end of the day he would say "me birthday" whenever someone gave him something. And still does whenever a package comes in the mail these days. He was so happy with what the boys picked out for him because now he could play with them and have his own guys and cars.
We went simple this year and I made brownies. We still put candles in them. I was trying to get photos while making sure he didn't touch the hot flames. Landon was video taping and Eric was holding Issabelle. Not sure what Will was doing exactly, but it proved to be a bit tricky and when at the end Harkin leaned over and caught his hair on fire- there was a bit of a commotion for a few seconds- which we will have forever on video. It really didn't flame up but sizzled just for the tiniest of seconds. Harkin didn't even know anything happened, except that his father was yelling. Anyways, all was well and we had brownies and played for the rest of the evening with his new toys.
