Samantha's 4th Birthday Party

Well, this is the last weekend of "normalcy" that we will have for quite awhile :)  I can't tell you if this might be my last blog post for awhile, but since there's always that possibility, I wanted it to be a good one!

And I can't think of a better thing to highlight than Samantha's 4th Birthday Party!!!

We decided to have her birthday party early this year, for two reasons - A:  we wanted it to be special for her before her little sister is born, and B:  we wanted to do it before she gets her tonsils out and feels like dog poo for a few days.  This year was the first year we didn't have her birthday party at home; I just knew with Morgan only days away it would be wise to go somewhere and have it.  We ended up at Priddy Farms Pumpkin Patch for a fantastic Scooby Doo birthday party, and all the kids had a blast!!!!!  Here are some pics:

Not sure why this one came through sideways, but oh well - the birthday girl is ready to party!

I'm willing to bet that each of these kids slept REALLY good last night!  And probably most of the parents too :)

The big event coming up this week is Samantha's surgery - if I don't get the chance to post before (or after) please keep our family in your prayers.  I know this is a very routine procedure but I'm still nervous - it's my little roo after all!!!
