Once Steve and Luke came home, the brothers were beside themselves with excitement. I don't think the video footage from this little shindig will ever see the light of day. Steve and I spent a ridiculous amount of time telling the boys to back off and let Eli open his own presents. Andy ended up in tears because he couldn't open anything. Eli had zero interest in his gifts and shoved them aside rather quickly. He did pause for a minute to chew on his new car.
Nothing says happy birthday like your brothers making you cry. They commandeered his new tool set and proceeded to poke, prod and irritate the little guy. Oh, the joys of being the caboose. Not at all interested in his red velvet mini cupcake. That's okay, your parents find them quite tasty. Your brothers swiped your toys, we'll take care of the cupcakes. Happy birthday, sweet fella! We are so grateful for you.
