Tajy turned 4!! Post #299...

Taj's birthday was a 3 day long celebration. He opened all his presents from family on his actual bday- Thursday. We also had birthday pancakes for dinner. Friday I celebrated in honor of Taj by going to the Def Leppard concert. Then on Saturday Taj had his 1st "friend" party. When I asked him what kind of party he wanted to have he said "Um. A friend party with my friend's from Riverton, Utah." (I can put the city now since she's moving!) So, Suzanne and her kiddos made the trek to the party!! So sweet! There were about 10 extra kids (age 4 and under) there and ya know what- it was so easy. They played in our backyard, busted a pinata and ate some cake. Nice... The theme was "Tajy transforms into a 4 year old" so everything was Transformers. It was a huge success.
I'm a bit "tranformered out." Everywhere we go Taj points out cars "Look! There's Ratchet!!" "Look, it's Optimus Prime!!" "Mom, tell me if you see Jazz." And everynite he wants me to tell him a story. And everynite when I start, no matter what kinda of character I start with he changes it to a transformer. Like tonite "Once there was a bunny..." "No Mommy. A transformer bunny...." Help.Me.Please.

Uh, Hello? Where was our invite? RUDE, is all I have to say!

utmommy said...

Oh my gosh, I don't know what just happened to me. I think I transformed into some mean, horrible, jealous person for a minute.

Happy Birthday Taj! Glad the party was a success!

Transformer cupcakes. Transformer bunny. This are going to be great memories, embrace your destiny Tori!

Little kids' bday parties are the best, and looks like you made all of Taj's little dreams come true.

No Cool Story said...

Wait!! This is #299?
AWESOME!!
Will 300 be a Transformer post?

Dana said...

I'm transformered out just reading that. I can't even imagine how you feel!

Yvonne said...

Looks like he had a great party. Love the transformer pinata--too cute.

Nancy Face said...

4 year-old Tajy had a party,
ee-ei-ee-ei-oh!
With a Transformer here,
And a Transformer there,
Here a Transformer,
There a Transformer,
Everywhere a Transformer...

You're a great mom, and you made Taj's birthday so memorable! I love the pictures, especially of the Transformer cupcakes. ;)

Amanda said...

LOL at utmommy's comments. :)

Taj has got to be the luckiest 4 year old boy around! Deformed cupcakes....hahahaha! Friends from Riverton, yay!! Lots of transformers....yipee!!

Kayelyn said...

Help? you ask. Well dear cool Tori mom, you have created your cool bed, so now you will just have to freeze in it!

You have 7 of the luckiest children I know. Their mom likes a lot of what they like, does a lot of what they do, and throws some of the coolest, and I do mean coolest, parties I have seen.

You leave me in awe and wonder at all you do. I certainly would like to get rid of the disease that makes me so tired. Then I could be cool like you.

Can I just stand in your cool shadow? You cool transformed mom, you. :D

Ashley said...

Although I have no little boys, :( I do a have a big boy and he loved transformers as a kid and loves them still. He was first in line to see the movie. DO men ever grow up? I hope not someone has to be on the kids level. Happy birthday to your little man!

Tori :) said...

Aubrey- I'm still waiting for my prissy girl. Maybe when Livie is older. Isabel still barely lets me fix her hair...

UtMommy- I'm sorry! I thought "S" would feel so old with all the little kiddos. I suck. He could have played with Suzanne's "D" and my Alec. I'm sorry!!

Tasha- Taj thanks you. :)

NCS- The transformer cupcakes were an accident... :P I'm still working on my 300th post. It's my anniversary tomorrow, so it'll probably be mushy.

Dana- Oh yeah. It's bad.

Yvonne- Thanks! You're so sweet.

Nancy- You're so silly! Thanks so much for the good mail!!

Amanda- the cupcakes were so bad. I don't think the kids noticed though.

Kayelyn- What's your definition of "cool" exactly??? ;)

Ashley- I loved the movie too! I've seen it twice. But if I have to find "Cliffjumper's leg" one more time I'm gonna scream!!!

Jean Knee said...

you know I think this whole transformer thing is entirely under rated. laundry all over? house transformed into a laundrmat,
grass needs mowing? it transformed into wild flower garden
wow the possibilities... Taj is my new muse

Heffalump said...

Boys birthdays are so fun. I will take Transformers over Barbie any day!

Annie said...

(Taj's fairy godmother floats in to bestow upon him a birthday blessing,
"Tajy, may you always understand the true use of toilet paper and never abuse it."
And just like that, she is gone in a pink poof.)

CHEL said...

Yay for birthdays!

Happy birthday!!!

Tori :) said...

Jean Knee- Gee. I never thought of it that way. My body is transforming into... cottage cheese.

Heffalump- Amen!!

Annie- You crack me up!! I can picture you being the Fairy Godmother... surrounded by prety pink bubbles.

Chel- Thanks!

annie said...

Birthdays are so much fun! Looks like they are double the fun at your house too!
Happy Birthday to sweet little Taj!

Yvonne said...

I CAN'T WAIT FOR POST #300!!!

Mel said...

Happy Birthday, Taj! It looks like everybody had a blast.

heidi lou said...

I hope I can be as fun of a mommma as you!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Oh, Tori, you're so much more than meets the eye.......

I'm currently transforming into a lame commenter. :(

I guess my invite was lost in the mail- cause Luke and I will drive for cake! Luke is also starting to get into these transformer things. Should make Christmas easy this year!

Looks like Tajy had a fabulous 'friends' party! Happy 4th!
