The FOOTBALL party!

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I can’t remember when it was, but once we decided on a football party for Jack’s fourth birthday, he was ALL ABOUT IT!  He would tell anyone and everyone that he was having a football party when he turned four-and that the girls were going to dress up as the cheerleaders!  Of course this momma was thrilled with his excitement, booked our neighborhood park, and started planning all the fun football games. 

Sam had fun, promise! imageWell, it was a rainy weekend, so the party was moved to our house, and it was more of a playdate instead of a football game.  The children didn’t care one bit and seemed to all enjoy playing with each other.  We’re so thankful to our family and friends for celebrating our favorite four-year-old with us!imageOur traditional birthday banner was hung for the birthday boy,imageand Jack’s birthday banner greeted everyone.  Welcome, friends!imageThe team colors…imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageThe pre-game meal…imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageClearly I took pictures of everything before our friends arrived.  From here, I dropped the ball and didn’t get pictures of all our guests!  We’re so thankful for everyone that came to celebrate!  Here are some of the teammates I did catch…imageimageMy eater…eating!imageThe piñata.  After we decided on a football party, Jack’s only request was to have a football piñata.  He’s easy to please, and he LOVED it!!  And man, that thing was tough!  It lasted through a couple rounds of the kids, Mark making a few helper holes, and the bigger kids having a few big time go's at it!imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageThe birthday song!  He told me before the party that the birthday song was going to be his favorite part. Yep, he loved it!  You can’t tell from this picture, imagebut look at this one!imageAnd these!imageimageimageOoooh, I love him!imageOops, finger down Sam!!  Ignore that and look how excited Jack is to blow out his four candles!  It’s totally the little things!imageimageMy t-tiny.  Forever and always! (Mark, how did I miss getting pictures of you and your boy?!?!?!)imageimageThank you to all our family and friends for making this four-year-old feel so well celebrated and so loved!  And for bearing with us on the last minute location change! :) Go Team Jack!
