Happy 4th Birthday Sam!!

Birthdays were always a big deal in our house growing up and I LOVE carrying on that tradition with our boys. So to celebrate the day that we were blessed to welcome this beautiful baby boy into our family four years ago...

we had two parties in 5 days- one big crazy party and one smaller, more intimate party and we now have one VERY happy 4 year old. And one slightly jealous one and a half year old... but oh it's soooo funny to see him grab one of Sam's new toys and make a run for it!!

The birthday boy's special request for breakfast... he's wearing one of his Daddy's white t-shirts because he is Kung Fu Panda (he changes characters at least three times every day!)

Ok, back to the parties... I saw the idea for Sam's baseball themed parties here and loved it! Baseball tickets for invitations...

The Concession Stand had hot dogs with all the fixings and ball park nachos...

The Snack Bar was a hit with licorice, peanuts, popcorn, chips, and baseball cookies...

Those baseball cookies were such a hit! One little party guest was rumored to have eaten SEVEN all by himself... no, not Jakers!

Baseball shaped cupcakes and one bigger baseball for the birthday boy...

Then there was this fun/slash/slightly crazy clown lady!

The decorations were all red and white, peanuts instead of confetti and check out the vintage baseball picture of the birthday boy, taken last week and completely unplanned!

And the favors... a MUST HAVE in my book, even for the adults who took home baseball mitt shaped peanut butter rice krispy treats with white chocolate baseballs...

And for the kiddos... their party bags with brown lunch bags tied with a baseball shaped tag with each kid's "baseball name." Inside they had Big League Chew Gum, a baseball game, baseball stickers, homemade caramel corn, and their jersey cookie!

And the party guests knew that the "Team Sam" colors were red and white. Opening the door to my brother holding this was AWESOME!!

Look at that Spiderman face!!

Sam had one of those too... I almost cried when I saw it :(

but he hated it so I washed it off halfway thru the party and then he had "eyeliner" and weird makeup shine the rest of the party. And he chose to have a nice little Cookie Monster on his arm instead... someone let me know how I can bottle up his innocence, k?

I had so much fun prepping Sam's parties and celebrating with good friends and family. We love him more than words could ever express. He is the sweetest, most thoughtful little guy ever and he cracks me up every single day with his wild imagination. Happy Birthday Samuel!!

SOOO cute, Laurie! I'm so bummed we had to miss it! Thanks so much for the adorable party favors - the boys LOVED them! They thought it was so cool that they each got their own special bag of treats.

You are just the best party planner ever!!

Oh Laurie, I'm so sad we missed it! We're back in town now and getting back in the swing of things. It looks like it was a hit(heehee). No- really- a little boys dream. You sure do know how to throw a party!! I'll call you soon so we can drop off his little gift. :)
Sam- WE LOVE YOU!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
