Superhero Birthday Party!

For Ethan's 4th birthday party he chose to have a superhero party. Here's the invite I made. {by the way you can click on any of these photos to see them larger}
As the kids got to the party they each got to color their own wrist bands and then open a present.
Inside the present was a cape with their initial on it and mask for each kids. 
Once all of our superheros where dressed we went outside to vaporize all of the bad guys. I put pictures of villains on our fence and kids used silly string to vaporize them. 
Next we used our super strengthen to lift super heavy weights. Then we practiced our flying skills and flew over tall city buildings.
We then played a few games of flying around the house
Used our super powers to play red rover
And used our super smart brains to find the clues that lead us to the cake....but there was a villain standing in our way so the kids used their super powers to get past him.
We sang happy birthday
Opened presents
And then each kid got a little super sucker as a thank you for coming to our superhero party. 
I think the kids all had fun and I know that Ethan did. Thanks to everyone who helped me with this party and happy birthday to my little buddy!

Carving pumpkins

This year we were on ball and actually carved our pumpkins before Halloween :) Chad and Ang came over to join in the fun.

Pumpkin Patch

For my birthday we took the kids to a pumpkin patch with our friends Chad and Ang. It was small, free, and lots of fun. They had a few animals out for the kids to feed. Ethan loved trying to get the animals to eat and Madelyn was not to sure about all of it.
They had a maze through some hay barrels that were taller then me. Here you can see just how tall they are Ethan wanted to climb on top. 
They had a hay ride which the kids loved. 
A pile of corn for the kids to play in
And a pyramid of hay bales to climb on
I love the fall and I love doing fun things like this with my family and friends.
After the pumpkin patch we headed home for some super yummy fancy brownies that Ethan and Jared made for my birthday.
Happy birthday day to me!

Happy Birthday Ethan!

Our little man is now 4 years old! I can hardly believe that my little buddy is 4 years old. On his birthday we had one of his favorite meals which is corn dogs, Uncle Brandon took him to the store to pick out his birthday present and then we came home for a small treat and a big present from mom, dad, and sister.
His first set of LEGOS! He's been asking for Legos for months now. He loves them and loves to sit and build or have mom and dad build something for him. We are so blessed to have this sweet little boy in our home. We love him so much and are so proud to be his parents. Happy birthday Ethan!
