4th Birthdays... Post Here!

I would love to see how you all celebrated!

Kade had 4 birthday celebrations this year... Long story, but here are the highlights...

A few days before his real birthday, my mom came and performed at his preschool. It was right before Memorial Day Weekend, so there was a small group of kids, but we did cupcakes and she did music and magic. He LOVED it!

Then on his REAL bday, it was just me and the 4 kids, so we hit the Dollar Tree for a ton of cheesy paper goods and decor, picked up dinner of his choice (McDonalds) and an icecream cake and did Happy Birthday at home...


THEN On the day we were scheduled to host his birthday party, he came down with hand,foot and mouth disease (Bentli had it a few weeks prior and so had lots of kids at his school and in the area)... so we had to cancel the party. My DH had taken the day off and we already had the cake and stuff, so we did ANOTHER family celebration and rescheduled his party...

Finally, this past Saturday, we hosted his "real" birthday party. We did a construction theme and my dad brought some of his equipment all the way from his house almost 2 hours away!!!! Everyone had a great time, especially Kade. Here is his 3 minute birthday party recap!

Thomas did not have a party this year. We were in CA for my sister's wedding, so we went to Disneyland! Carsland had just opened at California Adventure, so we felt like we had to go. It was really cool, but TOO busy! The line for the car ride was 2 1/2 - 3 hours long! I felt bad, but we just couldn't stand in line with a 4 year old for hours like that.

We also got to celebrate Grace's 4th birthday at her party last weekend & got a pic of the kids with Beth & me.

And I don't want to start a separate thread, so here is a picture of Thomas & me at the wedding. I was a bridesmaid- he was the ring bearer. He was adorable! My dress was too tight due to this baby, but I couldn't tell anyone...
