Boy's Birthday Dinner at Christmastime

Our grandson recently turned four. He loves anything with wheels, and he's excited about Christmas, so I combined Christmas trees and wheels for his birthday dinner.

Better Homes and Gardens Heritage Salad Plate

I love these Better Homes and Gardens Heritage Collection salad plates. Our Walmart only had three of them in stock, so I called my sister-in-law (who is also my personal shopper), and she found the other five at her Walmart.

Christmas Trees and Wheels for Boys Christmastime Birthday Dinner

You may remember that this big rusty truck hauled pumpkins in the Fall. After the pumpkins are harvested, the owner of this truck becomes a Christmas tree farmer. With all of this farming, you'd think he could buy a new truck.

 He tried to make the truck look better with Christmas d├ęcor, and he wished our grandson a happy birthday with signs on the sides of the truck.

Tractor Birthday Cake for Cooper

 Even his cake had wheels on top. Some of you prayed for Cooper when he was born, weighing one pound fourteen ounces. I wanted to share this picture of him as proof of the miracle of prayers. We are so blessed to have a thriving, fun, and intelligent miracle grandson.
I'm glad you joined us for his birthday celebration.

What a darling birthday table! I know Cooper was thrilled, as that last photo attests! Remember, I have a granddaughter born the same day, and we attended her 4th birthday party last weekend -- at a bowling alley! The kids had a blast, using little ramps to propel the balls down the lanes. Four is such a fun age!

Sweet photo of your cute grandson! My only child was a preemie, too. 2 lbs. 5 ozs. He is now nearly 6 feet tall and is graduating college this coming weekend. Merry Christmas to you

I'd say a kid of any age would like to be at this table even one as old as me!
