Mark's Fake Bday!

Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday Dear Mark , Happy Birthday to you!
We celebrated Mark's fake birthday while the whole family was in town for Easter. We wanted to have a early party with all the kids and it was really fun. The birthday hats were a huge hit:-). Sweet Ally loves a party, just like her momma!

Ryan chose to wear his hat a little differently than the rest of us. I'm sure that doesn't really shock you by now!

My mouth is watering just looking at this delicious cookie cake. I'm so glad we have this picture to document the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Candle that my mother has had for at least 15 years! Classic Honey.

So maybe a bun and a birthday hat wasn't the greatest plan. Oh well.


We got a real treat later that night. We had a night out at One-Thirty-Five Prime. It was Josh's actual birthday so GP treated all of us to a birthday dinner. Thanks so much dad!

We will be celebrating Mark's actual birthday (April 30th) in MAUI, HAWAII!!! Can you tell I'm excited! We leave this Saturday for a fun filled week of relaxing of the beach. The kids are staying here with my parents and Mark's parents. It is such a blessing for us to know that our kids will be having a blast with their grandparents while we are away.

WHAT???? MAUI??!!! Are you kidding! That's amazing! Have you been? You will love it! Have so much fun and enjoy the break!

Love the candle. I don't understand why your mom had it? My mom wouldn't even know about the TMNTs. We're were so clueless until my boys were born! Way to go Honey!
