He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

A Super Spidey Birthday all the way!

This year we decided to theme out Austin's birthday party Spiderman style. It was a lot of fun (and work), but also one I think our boy won't ever forget. We almost spent the money to do a bounce house place party where there is no mess and no worries, but I am not sure how much longer our little man is going to let me go theme crazy like this (and get a lot of my stored-up teacher energy out, so we went for it and Austin loved it! Doesn't take much to make this 4 year old happy! :) Here are some pics of our Spidey adventure:

The Cake/Cupcakes
The DecorationsI wish I had a picture of Austin's face when he walked into the door and saw the place (our Church's Fellowship Hall) all decked out in Spiderman. That right there made all the late nights of working on this day worth every second! So fun!

This birthday party was the 1st where Austin invited his school friends along with our Church friends and family. I just love this pic of Austin and his sweet friend, Dalton! They got right to playing like crazy after this. :)

Our little bounce house is always a hit (and this year it was a last minute addition - THANK GOODNESS we had it so the kiddos could get out some much needed energy being that it was 18 degrees outside the day of the party!)

Andrew's dad with Austin's 2 great-grandmothers who were such good sports at such a loud and rowdy party. They are both AWESOME and so much fun!

Let the games begin!

Audrey with her Grandpa Werley looking at the fun balloons.

More games! Loved how Daddy showed the kids how the game 'Pin the Spidey to a Bad Guy' works! Hehe! Way to go Dad! ;)

Singing Happy Birthday - do you think Austin is enjoying all the attention?! That's our boy!

All of Austin's sweet friends who came to play and party. Always love the group shots!

What is a party without a pinata? And a Spiderman one at that!

Our princess had a lot of fun, too!

Thanks SOOO much to Aunt Alisha for taking all the great pics of the day and for Peyton for being such a big help with all the littles during the party! Love you, girlies!

We have a 4 year old! Unbelievable!
It was a great day, but Mommy and Daddy were also glad when all the partying was over. ;) We were wiped out!! (And even compared it to the 'after our wedding day tired'!) Thanks to everyone who came to make this day so special for our son! We have such amazing family and friends! Austin, we love you TONS and are so proud of our little Spidey hero!
