On June 14th 2014….I threw the boys a joint birthday party.
This years party was a South Carolina Gamecocks Baseball theme. Mainly because….they love baseball and they love the Gamecocks….so why not! I wanted this party to be cheap, painless, and super simple…..and that is was! We left for our cruise 15 hours after the party was over so my mind was a bit all over the place that week with trying to prepare for everything. I am a procrastinator and I get overwhelmed easily so you can imagine!!
But the boys had a blast and so did all their friends so….winning!!!
The goody table!!
The cake turned out super cute…I just wish Ryder’s name was on the front too….it was on the back.
My “can do anything” Mom made these cute Oreo Pops!!! I love how they turned out!!
Baby Ruth and SC Gamecock mints!!!
The Big League chew was a hit!!! All the kiddos were excited to grab their pack!!
All the guest signed their baseball!!
Pop Corn!! My plan was to already have the bags filled and sitting on the table but the bags were huge and I didn’t have enough popcorn to fill them or enough space to set them out on the table. So in the bucket it went!! Help yourself!!
Ryder’s name on the back! Thank goodness he’s too young to notice his name wasn’t showing while the cake was displayed on the table!

After everyone arrived we started playing some games. The one above, the kids were in 2 teams and raced down to the bats and had to put their forehead on it and go around in a circle 5 times and then run back…it was too cute!!
I think Cross was the best at this game!!
Ryder’s friend from church and MMO…Easton!
Hudson is such a cutie!!!
The hotter it gets…the better the dug out looks!!

Singing Happy Birthday to Ryder!
Ryder sure knows how to cut those eyes….he’s still cute though!
Maddox loved every minute of his party!! One happy kid!!
His preschool friend Campbell! They will also be in Kindergarten together!!
Ryder’s smiling!!! Little Laura was trying to play with him earlier during the party and Ryder was not wanting her to play with him. I said “Ryder, she just wants to play with you”, He responded, “but I not a toy”! LOL! Cracked me up!!
Pinata time!! We made about 2 rounds of all the kids swinging before it finally started to bust….that was one tough pinata!!
They got the memo!!!
Cross and Jaydan made the boys cards and they were so sweet!!
Krista will always be a very special friend…and being cousins is just a bonus!!
Sister Sister!!! Love her so!!
It was a super fun party and I absolutely can not believe that my boys are 3 and 5!!! I have to say every stage just keeps getting funner but I sure do miss lots of things about them being younger. God knew what he was doing when he created the stages of growth….better yet the stages of life!! I just want to soak up all I can!! Loving and Living Life in the Moment!! Happy Birthday my sweet boys!! I love you to the moon and back!!!
