MC Under the Sea

Though she is not quite 4, we celebrated MaryCollis' birthday yesterday. She wanted an Ariel party, so an Ariel party she had... but we went with a more under the sea theme. There were roughly a million people in attendance, and we had a blast!




Favors included seashells with hair ties inside, nail polish, and combs (dinglehoppers) for the girls; pirate bubbles, and "argggghhhh" bracelets for the boys.

We had fun swimming with our friends and eating yummy food, then we opened presents with K-Love and LaLa. MC was all about the karaoke machine that looked like a Princess Sophia purse. You can sing to her music, or you can hook up your iPod and sing to your own music. Super cool. Thanks, Brody!

Of course her favorite gift was her Samsung Tablet from Gamma. She is PUMPED to have her own "iPad." She doesn't know I set the timer to only let her play between bath time and bed time. :)

Making her birthday poster for school

After we all had great naps, Auntie Jane and LaLa helped us make MC's birthday sign for school. They do a little geography/history/science lesson on how it takes you 365 days to turn a year older and it takes the Earth the same amount of time to orbit the sun. It's really cute. 

Creating headbands from the kit Peyton gave us

Tada!

So we had a wild Saturday night making her poster, then Sunday LaLa and I whipped out the headband kit Peyton gave MC. We made so many cute little headbands. MC will be pumped when she gets home from AWANA! It was a great party, and I can't wait to celebrate again this weekend!

Back to School 2014

We had a whirlwind summer and are just now getting acclimated to our new routine. I moved into my third classroom in three years, MaryCollis started K3 at St. John's, and Penn moved into a new room at daycare. The transition has been pretty smooth since Chad has been home and has taken them both to school the last two weeks.... this coming week will be the real test! Here's the end of our summer/beginning of school in photos...
