Green Beard Birthday

C's 4th birthday will forever go down in history as the Green Beard Birthday.  As some of you may know, we only celebrate our kids birthday's with parties exponentially (ages 1, 2, 4, 8. 16).  This was decided after a particularly exuberant Dora party for M's 4th birthday.  On the off years, we more quietly celebrate as a family at home, and allow the kids to have a small sleepover with friends (no gifts!).  Well, this was C's big party year!

I got the idea to invite Mr. Stephens to our party after attending several of his sing-a-long concerts at the Phillips Recreation Center over the last two years. He is great with kids and his songs are so upbeat, catchy, fun, and educational!  Even though hubby thought I was nuts, I contacted him and he immediately agreed to sing at C's party!!  It couldn't have been a more perfect form of entertainment for a four-year-old.

We also greatly enjoyed the company of our family and friends, carving & painting pumpkins, opening special gifts, and eating a pumpkin themed birthday cake!

Here's to great year of being four!

  1. Oooh, I may steal the exponential birthday idea from you. It's just such work to do the birthdays for both kids within a couple months, when Seattle's all crazy busy in the summer. This year will be CJ's 4th, but I am totally planning something big - either a train party or skydiving (well, air tunnel). Mmhmm!!
