Sam's Second Birthday -- Friends and Family party

At the end of Sam's birthday week we invited a few of our most favorite people and friends over to celebrate with singing and cake.  We are so blessed to have such wonderful and caring (and fun) people in our life (who actually WANT to hang out with us, LOL).

Auntie Amanda and Uncle Steve and Auntie Laura, Uncle Mike and Nina came.  Sam was in love with the bubblers and toys that Nina brought him, and once again, Amanda's book gift was the hit of the century -- I don't know how she always picks out the BEST books, but you can bet that every night when we read books before bed, at least ONE of the books we read is one SHE picked out.  What can we say, she picked a good profession for herself (teacher).

We lit up the little birthday cake with a bunch of candles and treated Sam to a full on rendition of the Happy Birthday Song.  And this sweet little boy sang along the entire time :) 

Then it was time to blow out candles... 

And he blew them ALL OUT BY HIMSELF!!  Way to go Sammy!!!

Little Max (gosh he's not so little anymore is he...) was in heaven getting to spend time with his favorite Auntie and godmother (aka godmudda).  I think she was in heaven too....

I have to include a picture of this little cutie in closing.  Isn't Nina Bean the cutest??  Love her!!

It was a wonderful night -- the kids played together well and we had a delicious meal --  grilled chicken, broccoli salad, green salad, fruit salad and cake.  Oh yeah...and wine....lots of wine.  :)  Let's do it again soon, friends!

And we are so blessed to be a part of your family's lives. I don't know what I'd do without you all! And yes...I was in heaven. It's always a great day when I get to snuggle and read with your kiddos!
