Pirate Aiden is turning 4!!!
While Aiden doesn't actually turn 4 until Sunday September 1st, I decided that with hassle of labor day I would go ahead and have his birthday party a week early. Those that know me know that I love to host...a cookout, a BBQ, or a birthday party...I love to organize events and I always do things BIG! I actually get anxiety at the thought of not being in control of organizing my kids parties...weird, I know! I blame the OCD!!!
I usually have lots of time to prepare but with Leif deployed most of my preparing was done with the kids attached to me or in the 3 days leading up to the party when I had some extra help! Needless to say, I got everything done and I have so many people to THANK for their time and countless offers to pitch in. You know who you are so THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
Now to the party...Aiden wanted a pirate pool party!!!! DONE!!!

I really can't believe that my baby boy is almost 4! He is such an amazing "little man". He amazes me everyday with his compassion, creativity, kindness and bravery! I really could go on and on...but I will save that for his birthday!!! The party was a blast...we are truly blessed with the most amazing and supportive friends and family!!!! Thank you for celebrating with us and for making Aiden's day so memorable!
