Sam today, waiting to open his presents
This morning when Sam woke up, he came into our bedroom, and said in such a cute way when he walked in, "Does somebody have a birthday today? Is someone 4?"

Sam and Mac the truck.
Sam was with me when I bought this gift. I tried to hide it from him under Leah's coat, but he dug around the buggy and saw it. When he saw his presents this morning, he kept saying, "Is this my Mac truck?" as he picked up a gift.
Sam playing inside his Lightning McQueen tent. Olivia, Julie, and Clay gave Sam this tent along with a flashlight, compass, and sleeping bag. Sam played inside this tent most of the day.
The birthday table---Curious George was the theme.
Two Georges--I decorated the table with Curious George books (I read at least two of these a day to Sam) and Reese's Peanut Butter cups--Sam's favorite candy.
The birthday breakfast--bacon, eggs, biscuits, and pancakes.
After a leisurely morning of birthday fun, Jimmy took the boys into town for haircuts. The girls and I met them for a late lunch at McDonald's, and then we all went to Homeschool Skating. Sam rode his bike, and everyone else skated---even Jimmy and me! There were 87 homeschooled children there today. It was a lot of fun!

After skating, we all went home. I cooked "little" hamburgers and homemade french fries for Sam's birthday supper. Next, we sang Happy Birthday and enjoyed a yummy bakery-bought Curious George cake and ice cream.

Happy Birthday Sam!
