Transformer/Ninja Turtle Party and Graduation

My wonderful son, Kaleb turned 3 on Monday! I can't believe how time flies. He was sooooo excited for his birthday and asked me everyday for a week.." is today my birthday, mommy?" He decided he wanted a Transformer/Ninja Turtle party, b/c he loves those movies and the toys. We went to Party City to get all the supplies, but they didn't have any Ninja Turtle stuff!! He was upset, but I told him I would still put Ninja Turtles on his cake, so he was ok. We got the Transformers plates, napkins, cups, etc... and then went to pick out balloons. He was picking out a balloon when Hailey said here is a TMNT(teenage mutant ninja turtle) balloon. We were all so happy, so he got a transformer balloon and a TMNT balloon! By the way, we did this a few days before. So, on the day of his birthday he got up was so thrilled that today was actually his birthday! I asked what he wanted for breakfast, thinking he would pick cinnamon rolls or pancakes...no he wanted cereal. Easy enough for me. Then we needed to go get his balloons, pick up some stuff at Target and get lunch. He choose McDonald's for lunch. All the kids were happy about that:) After that, I made all the kids take a nap(even Hailey) so I could finish the cake and get all the decorations set up. When I had finished everything, I got the kids up and showed Kaleb his cake, which he loved! Then we went to get ready for the pool. I got all the kids ready, got the bags ready and headed to the pool. It is just behind our house, so we walked, man was it hot!!! Like 102 HOT! So we were ready for the pool, BUT the pool was CLOSED!!! I was so mad!!! The pump to the pool had broken and the guy who was fixing it was still there. He said he was finished fixing it, but we had to wait for the pool people to come check it out and give me the ok to swim. ARG! I called the pool people and they told me it was going to be like 45min. till they got there. I was very frustrated and Kaleb was very upset!!! I told him we could go home and make the bathtub our swimming pool, he seemed pretty happy about that. The kids actually had a really fun time playing pretend pool in the tub! After the tub-pool he picked out a movie to watch while we waited for everyone to get there. He picked Transformers(the new one-even though we have the original). Stephen got home and then picked up the pizzas, and then the rest of my family showed up and we had a super fun party! Kaleb loved all his presents, especially his new bike! (He wears his hat all the time, so in the bike pictures you can't really see how excited he was), and he loved the cake, and he loved having all the family there. What a lot of love! Another one of his favorite presents was his TMNT sword and mask. He actually went to bed with the mask on and the sword still tucked in the back of his shirt!! I sure do love my Kaleb and I am glad he had a great birthday!!! I made another slide show since there was a lot of pictures. I hope you like the music, seeing as it goes with the theme of the party:)

So, my younger brother Kyle graduated high school on Tuesday!! I am so proud of him and I love him to death!!! He really is a fantastic brother and I am so glad he is a part of my family. He was only able to get 5 tickets to the graduation ceremony, so just the immediate family went(thanks to Stephen and Amber for staying with the kids so we could go). It really was a fun night just hanging out with my parents and brothers and celebrating Kyles accomplishment. I truly do love all my brothers! They are so fun and make me laugh all the time. Heavenly Father sure blessed me when he allowed me come down to this wonderful family!! Here are some pics of the family after he received his diploma. Please ignore my shiny, sweaty face in the pics...it was hot and I was a little emotional:)

What an awesome party! I can't blame Kaleb for liking the Transformers and Ninja Turtles like he does. They are pretty cool.
Tell Kyle we are proud of him as well. Way to go boy!
