Gavin's 4th Birthday

Happy birthday Gavin! It is soooo hard to believe my baby is 4, I know I say that every time they have another birthday, but it is going by too fast. :( Gavin is my little book worm...hence the theme for the party, "The Cat in the Hat". It was such a fun theme and allowed a lot of creativity. He had a great time, and so did we.

Thanks Gavin for being such an awesome little boy. Kyle and I often look at him (Parker too) and are so in awe of him. He is a super funny little boy, a great big brother (most of the time), a loving friend, super social and friendly, this kid will talk to anyone...a little scary, I know. We have had the stranger talk sooo many times, and he still has no fear. He is a smart little boy. He loves to read and learn. He has sooo many questions for everything and anything. If Gavin could pick his perfect day it would be: wake-up at 7am (he has an alarm clock inside of him, I swear...7am on the dot, everyday), magic pancakes for breakfast, watch Super Why on PBS Kids, read books for as long as he wants, paint outside, peanut butter and honey sandwich for lunch, more books, more books, more books, skate park with Daddy, pizza for dinner and frozen yogurt for dessert, more books for bed time and a prayer and he is down for the count. I feel so blessed to have him as my son, and look at him and ask myself, "is this really my son?" He has truly melted my heart and I thank God for him each and every day. Happy Birthday Gav, Mommy loves you!

Thing 1 (he picked out his shorts, they are pajama shorts...silly)

Thing 1 and Thing 2 with Grandma and Papa
The cupcakes...white chocolate covered oreo's (a pain to make) and lifesavers for the hat. Yum!
Green Eggs and Ham. I think people were a little afraid of the green eggs, I liked them. The ham was prosciutto pizza.
Fruit parfaits (cat in the hats hat...)
Tie Dye shirts. They turned out amazing!

Kyle as the Cat in the Hat. He read "The Cat in the Hat" before cake and presents.

Their tie dye shirts. So great. They want to wear them everyday! :)

Randomly found your blog and your boys remind me so much of my own. I love "The Cat in the Hat" theme! Never heard of anyone doing that before. Looking forward to following you! :)
