Aden’s 4th Birthday Costume Party: Part 1

Are you ready for part one of my recap of Aden’s birthday party? Even though his official birthday isn’t here until the 12th, he loves Halloween and dressing up so much that we knew he would have a ton of fun at a costume party. Ghostbusters made for an amazing family costume and jumping off point for our Halloween-inspired birthday bash, even though when the day came, Aden didn’t want to wear his ghost costume anymore. Kids, lol. But there was so much to do, he had a blast regardless…

We had yummy treats like candy apples and autumn pies, as well as other snacks catered by Bite Catering. My talented assistant Amy was behind the table accents… So impressive!

For spooky centerpieces, we had cauldrons filled with dry ice and water so the little ones could stand back and watch in amazement.

Sibling pic! So many of our family and friends were able to make it to the party, which is what really made the day so great.

Then it was time for Aden to open his gifts. Ariah wasn’t so sure about her hat at the beginning of the day, but she warmed up to it.

Aden’s 3rd Birthday Party

I can hardly believe it, but Aden is officially 3! He had a great time at his party over the weekend. Last year’s birthday party theme was planes and this year it’s – wait for it – trains. You have probably noticed from my pictures that Aden has an undying love for trains (remember how much fun we all had at Train Town last year?) Toy trains, real trains, you name it. To celebrate Aden’s third birthday we headed to Griffith Park for the Southern Railroad. Thanks to my hubby Adam for always remembering to capture all the priceless moments…

What better way to channel a train theme for a three year old than with Thomas & Friends?

Taking in the history… At least Adam and I were.

The look on their faces. Lol. Props to Uncle Tahj for breaking out the sunglasses.

And no train birthday party is complete without an actual train ride or two.

So we’ve covered planes, trains… What do you think Aden will be into for his 4th birthday? ;)

I love when everyone gets together. Such a good way to celebrate this magical season!
