Soccer Camp

The Journey Christian Church put on a soccer camp this last week. It was Monday - Friday 2 1/2 hours after school each day . Jay had an awesome coach for the week. His name was Tristin. He is a student at a college back East. Several college students bought their own plane tickets and flew out here during their spring break to teach kids soccer. What a great program.

One day while Jay was playing soccer we went to the grocery store. They have these carts that have a tv screen inside so the kids can watch cartoons. It didn't completely eliminate the fighting.
Casey and Jay became good friend over the week. On last day there were trying to out eat each other at the hot dog cookout. I made Jay stop at 5.
This is Katelyn and Jay. They were not on the same team this week but there are in Primary together.

John's 35th Birthday

When John got home from work we fed the boys dinner. Jay lite the candle, and we all sang happy birthday.
John loves pistachio cake.

Jakub loves the frosting. After cake John read the boys 3 stories. They get to pick 1 story each night and they lay on the bed with dad for story time. While they were reading. I went to Applebee's and picked up dinner for us. When I got home the boys were in bed. We ate dinner than had more cake.

Dino-Mite Party

Today was the big P-A-R-T-Y! The boys looked great in their new shirts. Happy Jakub and Silly James have been talking about the birthday party for weeks. After Brooklyn's Party last month they wanted a "Tinker Bell Birthday" I convinced them to go for Dinosaurs. Jakub has been on board but James changed his toon from Tinker Bell to Thomas. I was not going to have 2 themes (I know mean mom).
When the guests arrived we did the dino dance, colored and played stick the dino head on the fossil. Then it was time for cake, that is after all why the kids came to this party RIGHT? The cupcakes turned out cute. I made orange frosting put dinos on top. James and Jakub got 3 cupcakes each with a dino candle on each one.
After cake we watched dino eggs grow into dinosaurs and had a "Ten little Dinosaurs" story by John. Some kids listened and some just watched out the window.

During present time I tried to get pictures of the kids who gave James and Jakub the gifts. This proved to be almost impossible. This is probably the best one because Danelle helped pose the boys and I clicked fast.
Mostly the boys wanted to open and play with the presents not have their picture taken.

We had cute 5 girls at the party and 3 boys plus James and Jakub. We had the usual ups and downs as you would expect from ten 2 and 3 year olds.
The boys got some great gifts.
What is better than opening presents? Playing with the toys.
The boys had so much fun with all the gifts they got. John and Jay got in on the fun too.

Wow! I survived 3 years with twins. We have lived in 3 different states in their life. Never a dull moment in the home of the J Five! The Adventures Continue.....

I want to say a very special thank you to the moms that came with their kids today. This is our first birthday away from family and I have to admit I have really been struggling. My boys have never had a birthday party without Grandmas', Grandpas', Aunts', Uncles', and Cousins'. Today was a very special day, I felt supported and loved. THANKS!
