Summer Movie Program Starts!

I wisely dressed my littlest kids in the clean clothes I wanted them to wear to the movie the next day so I could wake them up and go straight to theater since the movies start early. This was them the morning we went and saw Ice Age.

We got there early with no tears or meltdowns. By kids or mom. haha

Lyla fell right to sleep while breastfeeding in the theater and Everett was happy for most of the movie. The last 10 or 15 minutes both of them were awake and very cranky so it was a struggle but it was fine. I managed to keep them happy enough they didn’t disturb anyone from watching the movie 🙂
We walked around after the movie because the weather was perfection!!

Happy 9th Birthday, Payson!

I feel like this with most birthdays but especially Payson’s 9th: I can’t believe Payson is 9 years old!!! Half way to adulthood!! What?!

9 years ago:

And right now!

My kids are still very into Trolls so we did some Trolls themed stuff. I made up this idea for his cake at Walmart, just got toys and candy that seemed like they’d do well. Allan picked out the bright yellow frosting to match the bright yellow of Payson’s favorite Troll. Payson loved it.

I got the kids Trolls goody bags. They loved those things, worth every penny.

Two new Trolls for Payson. We had to order these on ebay for $7 each because we couldn’t find them in stores. The skitter boards didn’t come with them, they came with the toys for his cake, but he loved having them!

He named that new yellow Troll he’s holding ‘Disco’ and it was so cute that he had him blow out the candles with him 🙂

After opening presents and eating cake we went outside to play.

Ember and Everett love their new big wheel! They fight over it every day, though!

Payson got a big pack of Care Bears because my kids LOVE Care Bears and he let each of his siblings play with one.

These next two pictures were from the next day. Payson got a birthday card from his grandma.

He was really excited about it!
