Happy 4 1/2 B'day Ethan!

Ethan turned 4 1/2 today. In his words, "I've been waiting for a long, long time to turn 4 1/2." We celebrated with friends and family tonight. Cake and ice cream, and a visit from a Birthday Elf.

A Birthday Elf is quite different from one of Santa's Elves. Birthday Elves have wings, and when you're not at home they fly to your house and leave off a half-birthday gift. They don't bring presents on your birthdate birthday; only on half-birthdays.

It was a fun night, and we're looking forward to attending Kaiden's half-birthday in April.

And before you say it, I will. Ethan is just a tiny bit spoiled. As with any birthday, half or otherwise, photos are a must.

You guys are awesome. And just as crazy as we are.
I like the Ashton pic and the one of Ethan and Kaiden, they really ham it up.

Wow, you're good! I could never be organized enough to pull of half bdays. Around here they're lucky if I can pull of the main bday!

Happy bday to Ethan! Those pictures are adorable, as always!

Happy Half B-day! That's a good idea! My b-day is July 2nd, so my half bday would be Feb 2nd. I'll await my presents :)

Oh wait. I'm going to the dentist on my half b-day. Poo

Ethan is lucky to have such a fun mom as you. I love the birthday elf idea....and it looked like a great party for him....that little Kaiden is a doll baby too isn't she?

Oh and Happy 4 1/2 Birthday Ethan!

Oh yeah, nothing beats blowing out a birthday (pumpkin scented) tealight on your 1/2 birthday!!! Good Times!

What I would like to thank you for is introducing this to my children. Now, in three months, I will have to throw Kaiden a 1/2 birthday.

Like I said, I will be thinking up a new holiday soon that you will have to celebrate with Ethan!

I guess it takes some of the pressure off just one day a year!

He looks like you (from your above photo).

Never ever heard of half-birthday parties. How wonderful for Ethan, a whole year to wait for a bday party is way too long for little souls. Happy belated half-bday to your little treasure!
