The night before the kiddos birthday was like Christmas Eve! Mom and Dad were busy little bees, trying to transform the house into a magical birthday land.
Streamers on their doors… (and can I just tell you how adorable it was to hear them wake up the next day? Joe and I were giggling downstairs~ listening to all of the commotion and commentary. I sure wish I had been video taping!)
The boys found an assortment of trains and tracks waiting for them! Thank you, Craigslist!
The kids played with some of their new loot that morning while we waited for Daddy. He took off a half day and we surprised the kids with a trip to Chuck-E-Cheese. (insert Mom & Dad cringing)
I love this picture because it is so creepy! LOL. Ethan was not so sure about C. E. Cheese.
Time to play some games! (the kids were in heaven!)

Identical GOONS! These kids crack me up. Always up to no good and have the most high pitched voices, blabbing nonstop, that you have ever heard.
After Chuck E. Cheese, (and a family-sized carton of hand sanitizer) we headed over to the movie theaters for a little Ice Age Continental Drift. We had a blast just doing a family birthday fun day…surprising the kids all day long. (We were planning a big trip to a water park, but Ben wasn’t feeling well…maybe next year!)
Later that evening, Granna and Auntie JuJu came over bearing gifts and cupcakes!

Cheech and Chong
Can you say~ obsessed with all things trains?!!
Love this face. Pure excitement.

This kid and his trains…
Sav opened a present she has been asking for~ for a LONG time now…a stand up mirror for her room. Little Miss Priss loves getting ready and staring at herself for hours. (tsk, tsk)
Yep, pretty much after this picture, Savannah found herself in her room for sass- mouthin’ her Mommy. Oh well, got a cute pic of the boys with their twin Grannies!
Auntie Jess and Uncle Ed spent the night as well, because the very next morning~ Mom & Dad (plus the entire Steece clan) headed out to a family vacay and wedding in Colorado for the weekend!
So, more on that later… Mama is gettin' ready for the big Quad Birthday Bash this weekend…TONS to do!
