Tuesday, February 17th, 2009 was Ben's 4th birthday. Daddy took a vacation day that day so we were able to have the birthday party on his actual birthday, which was a lot of fun for Benjamin.
He had a Star Wars theme to his party, though we weren't able to find much in the way of Star Wars party decorations (without going to an expensive store), so we just used my Star Wars things as decorations, most of which are R2-D2. :)
We weren't able to spend a lot of money on gifts for him, but he enjoyed everything he received. I made him an ABC book using pictures of toys and objects around the house, which he loves the most I think. Another favorite toy of his is a plastic fishing pole he got from his uncle & aunt Dan & Becky. The pole has gotten a bit broken, but he still loves it and carries it around almost the entire day! I even had to tell him he couldn't sleep with it!
Here are some pictures from the day:
