Sam Turns Two

Although Sam's official birthday party isn't until this coming Saturday, I always make it a point to do something for the birthday person on the day of their actual birthday to make them feel extra special. As many of you know, I totally LOVE birthdays, so I've adopted this as our own little family tradition. And I can honestly tell you, so far no one has complained. ☺

Anyway, Sam's actual birthday was on Sunday so we decided to invite the family over for lunch and cake. Lucky for us, both sets of Sam's grandparents were able to join us, so this was such an awesome treat for all of us.

We had a wonderful time. Sam loved all the attention, opening his many awesome presents, and of course eating his delicious ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins.We picked a lion theme for his cake since he is currently OBSESSED with The Lion King.
And I would venture to say he was quite pleased with it.

One of his favorite presents, which I foolishly thought would solve lots of problems, but ended up creating additional ones, was this:
Isabella does not let Sam use her scooter, like EVER! And forget trying to wear her helmet ~ that is a sure recipe for a meltdown. So we got him his very own scooter with his very own Spider Man helmet. Well, now Isabella wants to ride his new scooter and he is adamant that she will NOT ride it. Period!

Oh, the joys of parenting!
