James' Birthday



 James turned
 ~12~
  November 13

 

It was hard to come up with a theme for James as he isn't really into anything right now other than......


 He loves to be outside!


An outdoor theme seemed fitting. When at the farm James can most often be found in the woods cutting privet, I believe he has taken it on as his personal mission to get rid of all the privet. 

We have so much privet James could be cutting for years, we sure are proud of how hard he has worked to clean out many areas already.

The table was set with lots of James' favorite treats
*Peanut Butter Cookies~ shaped into leaves
*Trail Mix
*Almond Joy Bars


On the Menu
*Chick-Fil-A chicken strips
*Salad
*Artichoke Dip and Chips
*Sparkling Grape Juice

The cake was 2 pound cakes iced in buttercream icing.






 James is the last of our family birthdays, by November he is very excited about his day coming;)


HAPPY 12 BIRTHDAY JAMES!!!!!


We love you James, 
we look forward to the coming year watching you grow. Our prayer is that as you continue to grow in stature you grow in the wisdom of the Lord as well. You are a blessing to our family with the joy, encouragement, and laughter you bring each of us.

The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom,
And before honor is humility.
Proverbs 15:33

I love all the decorations. Okay, just where do you store all these cups, plates and goodies that you have on the birthday tables?

Wow! I don't know who is the creative genius that comes up with the themes, decorations and then brings it all together but your parties are amazing! What special memories they will have when they look back at each birthday.
