a birthday party

We threw Sam a little family birthday party on St. Paddy's day, and he couldn't have been any more excited.  He'd been telling people for weeks that "my birthday's comin' over soon!" and when they would ask how old he was going to be he'd say "three in March!".  So cute. {one grumpy afternoon he informed me that he didn't want his birthday to come over & that he wanted it to stay in March.  Okay buddy, when you find a way to make that happen, tell me first, then go get a patent}.  But now he continues to tell everyone "three in March" and its getting quite confusing for everyone involved.  Anyway, Jon and I stayed up late on Friday {after Sam was in bed} to throw up a few surprise birthday decorations.  The next morning we had him wait on the stairs before the big unveiling until we could get the cameras ready.

Clearly, the anticipation was excrutiating.

His response: "What the heck?.......... I LOVE it!"

The party started at 1:00.  The theme:  loosely associated things that Sam likes including but not limited to trucks, dinosaurs, sheriff badges, & balloons {okay, you caught onto me--there was no 'theme', per say, but that's how we roll around here}. 

He had so much fun, the only thing missing was the rest of the fam.
Papa, Mimi & gang, we miss you & wish you could have been here to celebrate with us!
