Happy 5th Birthday!

Happy 5th Birthday Mo and Bo!  We cannot believe you are that old!  It seems like we just brought you home from the hospital and had to stop 3 times to adjust your little heads because you were so small.  Now, we are ready to ship you off to Kindergarten.  Next, it will be driving lessons and college…. 

Okay, enough mushy stuff.  

The kids’ party was a couple of weekends ago.  The themes they chose were My Little Pony and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles… and yes, I pulled it off thanks to Oriental Trading!  I don’t know about everyone else, but the kids, Don and I had a blast… even with the impromptu hula hooping contest.  And, yes… I have pictures.

As you can see, we all had a blast.  I am not sure what prompted the hula hooping… but, it was hilarious to watch.  Part of the kids’ birthday was a surprise trip to Columbus for an overnight stay in a hotel and then going to Dave and Busters the next day to play and have lunch.  We had to cancel.  A couple of hours after the party, Bo and I came down with the flu.  Then Mo got it.  Then, the dryer broke.  Not a fun time.

Happy Birthday Mo and Bo!  Mommy and daddy love you tttttttttttttttttttttttttthhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssssssssssssssssss much.  (More than that!)
