Samuel's Second Birthday

 We celebrated Samuel's 2nd birthday last Saturday. We had his party in James' hometown, and we got to see all of our family in the area.  He has become fascinated with trains, so that was the theme of the party.

 A big thank you to one of Louisiana's finest for making this little fella pretty happy. A state trouper let us take photos of Samuel with a caboose that he owned.

James' Uncle and Dad got this train set up for the party. It was the highlight of the party for Samuel. Thank you for sharing it with us!
 The cake came from Linda's Specialty Cakes. It was delicious, and it was
way cheaper than his first birthday cake.  One of the benefits of a small town, I guess. James' parents took care of the party planning, which was a huge help to me.  Thank you! We had the party at the activity building of the church James grew up in. We've had several family celebrations in that building.
Samuel, you are a joy to us!  It is so much watching you learn how to do new things and seeing you grow. We are so thankful for you.


  1. Happy birthday Samuel!!! Love his cake!

  2. Loved this party. Thanks for letting us have it here. Great group of friends and family. Fun, fun. Samuel is getting so big and learning so fast. He made us grandparents, and we really enjoyed this time together. Happy birthday, sweet boy.

  3. Oh, I'm so sorry we were out of town for this big celebration. What a special little boy!
