Grayden and Sadler's TMNT Party

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

This past Saturday we "shell-a-brated" the boys' birthdays with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party!
The whole family wore TMNT gear, I just can't help myself!

True love for your sons is buying and wearing a shirt with ugly mutant reptiles on it! :) 

The invite:

For food we ordered pizza (of course!) and had broccoli (Grayden's favorite) and grapes (Sadler's favorite) in the shape of turtle faces, and crackers, cheese and pepperoni platter. Thanks Pinterest!


The boys got so many wonderful gifts, TMNT pjs, Legos, Transformer Boulder toy, DinoTrux toy, Paw Patrol air patroller,  a swivel swing, squirt guns, new shirts, a board game, Quixels, wallets, registration for summer nature camp, books and more. One of my favorite things they got was their very own Bibles. We asked all our family members to highlight their favorite verse(s) in them, such a special keepsake. 

Last but not least the boys got new bikes! Grayden had outgrown his so he got a bigger 20" one, and we got a tag-along bike for Sadler (he's also inheriting Grayden's old bike) to tow behind Robb's bike when we go on longer family rides so he doesn't get tired out so fast trying to keep up. 
( I love this pic because it shows the back of Robb's awesome TMNT shirt! Another Goodwill score!)

Cake time:

Hope you had a great birthday party boys! It's so much fun to celebrate you and how special you are to us! Love you two "dudes" so much!

Grandpa L and Gray at VIP day at school! 

A couple weekends ago we tackled a long overdue project to clean up the play structure. Robb power washed and stained the wood, it looks so fresh again!

And while the guys worked.... the girls played! :)
I had a fun girls day being pampered with blowouts, shopping and dinner with 7 of my dear friends!

all ready to shop!

It was such a treat to actually be able to try clothes on! I usually take the kids along shopping with me and just buy without trying on, and return it later if I don't like it, plus I had 7 friends along to give me input, so fun!

I was hoping these new kicks would distract me from a brutal workout, but no such luck! 
If you're looking for some free workouts I can't recommend enough, I love it! They're not all brutal, you can find over 500 free full length workouts there, there's something for everyone. 
(and no, they aren't sponsoring this post, nor do they know I exist, I just really like it!

cuties at lunch on Sadler's birthday!

Jovie helping Grandma L and the other ladies crochet mats for Mozambique at church while I helped in Sadler's class!

being a diva in the dollar store!

Robb and I wrapped up the Prisonbreak series on Netflix last week, we loved it!

yup, another shoe pic :)
a pop of color on my feet always brightens my day!

Robb and I went out for lunch and had a couples massage for our April date last Saturday. 

Helping Grandpa R on the tractor while we were on our date.

It was a little too noisy for Jovie, watching daddy cut up wood for a fire. 

first bon-fire of the year!

only the most unusual way to walk to the bus stop for me and my crew :)

selfie with Sadler!

We moved her to a toddler bed, still some kinks to work out (like not getting out and coming in our bed 10 times a night) but she goes to sleep way better than she did in her crib! 

My sister went for a new look, her "sangria" hair turned out so cute!

I walked into the salon one day to see JoJo trying to put pony tails in her dolls hair. Precious love!

Math night at school!

Gray had a 2-hour delay on Wednesday, after dropping Sadler off we walked to the donut shop and library. He told me all about Minecraft, and how he sits by a boy on the bus who's always sad because nobody wants to sit by him. My heart melted right there on the sidewalk. So proud. 

We played by the Roelofs' yesterday morning, this was Sadler's idea of picking up...just stacking it all in a pile ON the toy boxes! Oh Sadler!

When we got home it was time to clean up OUR toy room, it's always a disaster, and with the boys' birthday party tomorrow night I thought it would be a good time to get it straightened out before adding in more toys.

We had our last M.Life meeting for the year this morning, I'm gonna miss these girls!
