|Before the big day, the girls practiced being mermaids. Josephine, performing as always.|
|I found the girls doing Sam's hair. Getting him handsome.|
|Two friends donated large boxes to become a pirate ship. of course, Sam was just happy to climb in the box.|
|Josephine getting wrapped up "like a baby."|
|In his pirate cape, watching the cake being made.|
|The completed pirate ship and crew.|
|Checking himself in the mirror.|
|A little put out that I made him stop so I could take a photo.|
|After the cake.|
Sam is way impressed with himself for turning four. And very reluctant to give up being the Birthday Boy, a role he lived up to the max for three days straight.
We're all very proud!
