Calling all Super Heroes!

WARNING- I've posted TONS of pictures on this post- so beware- I've warned you!

This past Sunday, we had a joint birthday party for Lydia & Turner!  And boy was it a blast! 
 We were blessed to have our friends and family here with us to celebrate another wonderful year~
 I found this photo/back drop idea online and thanks to my crafty husband it was a huge HIT at the party!  Made for some super duper cute pictures of our favorite super heroes
 My 2 boys: Turner & Jordan- and of course they insisted on dressing alike :)
 This is how you "strike a Spider Man" pose according to Turner
 Sis even joined in on the fun!
 Cutest little Robin I've ever seen
 Their invitations designed by a very creative friend!
 Look at those serious faces & BIG muscles
 Watch out villain!!! You don't want to mess with these 2 super heroes
 I just love their expressions! 
 Some of the decorations
 The food station!  Not sure what I'd do without Aunt CC helping to decorate. She made those awesome buildings!
 Powerful Popcorn is a MUST for Super heroes
 We ate  Super Dogs, Powerful Pickles, & Dynamite Dip ~n~ Chips
 and of course Joltin' juice
   There is a science to getting the perfect "burn" on the dogs~ Just ask our daddy!
 Sis loved the bouncy house slide! 
 More awesome Super Heroes and we even let a villain, aka Poison Ivy, sneak in
 One tough Ninja Turtle
 Super Man is here to save the day!
 Happy Birthday to ME!
 She got a kick out of everyone singing to her! 
 and so did he!

I've got the BEST super hero of them all!

 This is how we found Turner around 6:00 Sunday evening....he didn't wake up until 7:00 THE NEXT MORNING!  He was pooped
Having the time of her life!!

Thanks for making our party so much fun!

Turner's 1st Science Experiment & Pumpkin Patch FUN

 Turner was super excited to have Aunt CC help him with his 1st Science Experiment- turning a liquid into a solid!

 Thanks Aunt CC for bringing all the supplies and making Science so much FUN
 Waiting, waiting, waiting for something to happen
 Turner was so happy to stir the "potion"
 HOLY COW!!!  It's growing....
 We ventured to the pumpkin patch last weekend in the 90 degree weather!  We are ready for the FALL!
 Look at those rosey cheeks :) 
 Such a  big girl!
 Patiently waiting for the pig races
 Best part of the pumpkin patch is playing with friends!
 I'm having so much fun!
Lydia and her best friend Emma Claire!  They love holding hands

FUN with Grandma & FUN with friends!

Aunt CC, my dear friend Lisa and myself decided to brave OSU Homecoming Walk arounds with nearly 80,000 other Cowboy fans. It was pretty crazy BUT thanks to Aunt CC we didn't loose a single kid or have any major melt downs...which in my books is a WIN! 
We got to see several college friends and share many laughs!   

 Of course a trip to Stillwater is not complete without stopping by the Theta house to see Mom Eades! 
Maybe one day this sweet little girl will be a Theta just like her mommy!
 Can we say TROUBLE!
 Love this one!! 
We also got to spend a day with Grandma at the zoo!  Turner was so proud to show her around and point out all his favorite animals!!

Happy 4th Birthday Turner bears!

Nothing like being nearly 2 weeks late on this post!! That just goes to show we've been having too much fun to blog! 

We headed to Arkansas to spend Turner's birthday at the cabin with just the 4 of us!  Nothing beats good old fashion family time!

 This one is a bit out of order, but we got the kids tickets to Batman Live in OKC.  They had a blast getting all dressed up.  The show was great...only got scary at the very end so John & Turner went upstairs and ran around
 Turner's birthday was filled with all of his favorite things- BIRTHDAY BACON of course
 Happy Birthday Bubba!!
 Birthday cake with M&M's and CANDLES!
 Thinking about what his birthday wish will be

 Turner is in LOVE with anything Scooby Doo!
We treated the kids to Silver Dollar City.  The weather was amazing and we basically had the place to ourselves-no lines, no wait time!  Turner's favorite spot was the ball pit!

 The kids LOVE riding all the rides.  Can't wait til sis gets a little taller then she can ride them all with her big brother
 Such a big boy...riding all by himself
 Oh Turner- I love your spunky personality.  You make me laugh non-stop and keep me on my toes. You have such a sweet spirit and a big heart. I love love love you so stinkin much!  What a boring life I would lead if I didn't have you in it my sweet little boy
 You love making funny faces, funny sounds and the word POOP!
You're a natural athlete.  You love soccer, running, and playing in the dirt with your dump trucks
 You love bath time, reading books, telling stories, and giving hugs!  You also like to shake your booty anytime you hear music.  Knock knock jokes still make you giggle
 You know that Jesus lives in your HEART and that he loves you when you're silly, sad, mad, crying, happy or even when you're in trouble.  You love to sing songs about Jesus and of course anything that Justin Bieber sings. 
 You love playing dress up, wrestling with Lydia, Mercy, Lexus and just about anyone else who will play rough with you.  We are trying really hard not to hit, kick or push people we love.  That lesson has been a hard one to learn/fully understand but we're trying! 
You love talking on the phone, snuggling at bedtime, picking beautiful flowers, taking pictures, and making cookies.  You're still a picky eater!  You're not a fan of veggies and most meats but you love fruits, chips n cheese & milk! 
Turner got a new pet for his birthday to wrap up the celebrations- a beta fish who he proudly named TACO!

Your stats at your 4 year check up
Weight: 42 lbs which is in the 50%
and you're 42 1/4 inches tall which is 65%
 You got 2 icky shots and the flu mist
so 2 shots = 2 scoops of icecream!!

Thank you Jesus for blessing us with Turner.  And God bless Charlene for making the brave decision and choosing adoption for this boy who she loves dearly.  We are forever grateful & thankful
