Party Boy!

So today we had Samuel's birthday party. It was so much fun. Unfortunately it was raining so we stayed inside and the kids played. The kids played and ate and then it was gift time.
He really didn't know what to do when it came present time. We would hand him a gift and say this is from.... Then he would just look at like he was waiting on someone else to open it. Finally we got him to open all the gifts. Then the kids played with his toys.

When we got home Jim made a big deal about all of these being for Samuel. He pointed to each gift bag and said all this was Samuel's. Well, unknowing to him a belated gift to Blake was in the mix. So Sam is going thru his stuff and pulls out a CD. He comes running in the kitchen "Blake, Adventures in Odyessy!" I try to explain to Samuel that this is in fact Blake's birthday present. He responds with "Well it's my birthday. Blake has to share." I just about lost it with laughing. I think by the end of the day he had a better understanding what a birthday was all about. Here are a few pics from the party.

All Smiles at the Party!

Wow Guns! His favorite.

Wow 4 years old!

He's looking so well-adjusted, so happy. Doesn't take long to understand presents, huh? That's cute!

Great pictures!

Happy Birthday, Samuel! I liked guns at your age too! I'd have a cap gun in one hand and a baby doll in the other! Looks like the party was loads of fun!
