Matthew and Lucas Turn 9!!

Okay, I know.  I haven't updated the family blog in almost two months.  Fact, it's the beginning of April, and I'm just now posting about their birthday.  I know, big "mommy no no".  Oh well.

Well, their birthday was camouflage theme this year.

It was also the year of the friend birthday party.  We took the easy fun route this year and went to Sky Zone.  Sky Zone is a big indoor trampoline park in Columbus.  It rocked!
We had an hour of jump time, 10 nine year old boys, pizza, and a party room.

 It was SUPER fun...until Lucas came to me and said he felt like he was going to puke, and it was off to the bathroom for us.
 Oh well.  We got the stomach bug out of their systems (Matthew got it two days later) and it was time for the family party.

We had French Dip Sandwiches, veggies, potato chips, cupcakes, and ice cream.  All in all, it was a success.

They were SUPER excited about their Skylanders Wii game from Grandma and Papa, and their 3DDS from us.  Into the mix were some LEGOS, pjs, gift card to GameStop (another HIT), and books.

I can't believe they are nine.  This is our last year in the single digits!

They're reading above their grade level, and are learning so much about life in third grade.  They are growing entirely too quickly, and it's a stark realization that they'll only be under our care for about 10 more years. Boo Hoo!

They have been coming home with some bad words, but only ask what they mean out of innocent curiosity.  I can't believe they'll be driving in 7 years.  Wow.  My little boys are getting so big!
