Will's 4th Birthday - Batman Party

We celebrated Will's Birthday today with our friends and family.

Will decided months ago that he wanted a Batman party, so that is what we did. Normally, we have his birthday party at a large venue but this year we decided to have it at my parent's house.  We had anticipated that the weather would be decent so the kids could play outside, but it snowed so we were all crammed in my parent's living room. Regardless, it was a fun time!

The invite:

Here is the birthday boy ready to celebrate!

The cupcake table. It looks like a shrine to me and John but oh well!


Birthday Banner

Goodie Bags for the kiddos.

Mini Candy Bars with personalized Batman wrappers.

We had pizza, goldfish and fruit for lunch.

Then it was cupcake time!

And then gifts.  This is the first year that we have had our guests bring Will gifts. Normally, we donate to a charity in Will's honor. Since it was a smaller party, Will got gifts. 

To keep with tradition, Clay and I gave money to Will's Compassion friend.  The little boy we adopted in December has the same birthday as Will, so we gave to him instead of getting Will a present from us.  We always want Will to feel blessed, but we want him to know there are other kids out in the world that don't have as much as we do.

The gift opening was a little chaotic.

Batman Shirts!

Our little family...can't believe we have a four year old!

And finally, it's his party so he can cry if he wants too! I wanted a picture with him and his balloons but it was "so freezing" according to Will. This is the best I got.  Big tears!

We are so thankful for a great day spent with family and friends celebrating our little boy. I hope that Will knows above everything else that he is loved!
