Four


My baby is four. I wonder if he will ever have a birthday that I won't be shocked that he is getting older! Heavy sigh. Well we took him to breakfast and he got quite a few presents on his birthday but I work all day so we decided to bump his party to Friday. He has been talking about his Transformers party for months. He had four little friends (one was too nervous to do much), Shy had a friend, and then we had some awesome family come. They went on a treasure hunt for the Allspark, tried to match up transformers, and played 'autobot, autobot, decepticon' (duck, duck, goose). He hasn't stopped smiling all day. It is one of my joys to throw huge parties for my kids. I love planning for weeks, forming every detail, and seeing their faces when they finally get to the party they've talked about forever. Happy Birthday little man.
Our little Transformers (minus 1)
We held the party in the dance studio, it was so easy to keep everything in one room. Sometimes it comes in handy to have a large empty room!
I made the transformer mask cake the night before the party and made a nice mess of my kitchen with red and black food coloring!
Wacking Optimus with a stick was the boys favorite part. Boys will be boys!


Eric also had a birthday. He is so great to let Reed steal the day but I don't want to forget about him. I love him so much. He is the best father and husband you could ask for. He is always willing to help, he is home all afternoon to take care of the kids and house etc, and he is my best friend and I would rather spend time with him then anyone. Happy Birthday Sweetie!
