Celebrating a 16th Birthday

Happy 16th Birthday
We hosted a simple 16th birthday party with family for our son Sam.

Sam had not looked at his baby items in years. 
We thought it would be fun to get a few of his favorite items out for his party. 

 Sam loved trucks!

 Some of his favorite books.
He loved looking at his shoes. He could not believe his feet were so small.

Our guests enjoyed looking back at the items as well. They brought back memories and stories.

We had Taco Bar for our dinner.
I set the table simple with a dish of jelly beans and a Salted Nut Roll as a party favor.

 I made a fun banner.

 My mom made the cake.

 My dad helped decorate the cake.

Sam had a special day and he is so excited to be 16! So many new adventures on the way!
