Happy 8th Birthday, Tyler!

It's hard to believe that this little bundle of joy, who entered our lives several years ago, is now eight years old!  Time has gone by so quickly and we have enjoyed watching Tyler grow and learn.
Tyler had a friend over to spend the night.  It was his first sleep over.  We've started sleep overs with each of our children at their 8th birthday.  We would have let him have a lot of little boys over, but Tyler chose to just have one.  They camped out under the couch bed for a while.  It was so cute watching them play together.
Tyler decided way back in the summer that he wanted a Texas Rangers' birthday party. His brothers and sister dressed accordingly.
Our daughter, Lauren came up with the idea of hanging the Rangers' shirts on the stocking holders.  So cute!  It's fun seeing her become more and more creative.
Tyler wanted baseball cupcakes instead of a big cake.
My husband collected used Rangers' soft drink cups after a few of the games we attended. We brought them home, washed them, and stored them until party time. The cups made great (and cheap) party favors!
The plates and napkins were purchased at one of the Rangers' ballpark stores, and the little batting helmet - also used for favors and held the ice cream, were purchased at the Walmart in Arlington.  The helmets could be collected after games, as well.  The Ballpark serves ice cream sundaes in the mini helmets.

A fun group of little boys!  The played hide and seek all through the house.  It was too cold to play too long outside.
Everyone lined up to pose while wearing their mini Rangers' batting helmets.

Having Tyler in our life is such a blessing.  He makes us laugh every day and brings a special and unique personality to our family.

Happy 8th Birthday, Tyler!  We love you.  We are proud of you.  We thank God for you and pray that He will bless you and protect you as you continue to grow and learn.  We look forward to seeing what God will do in your life as you grow up to serve Him.

such a cute theme - and I still think Joe is the best Dad to pick up "trash" at Rangers games for this!
