5th Birthday

June 2nd was a special day x 3 in our household. Adley turned 3 months old, and Jaden and Cody both turned the big 5. They are officially "one hand" old! Since this special day was a Friday, we had Daddy home to celebrate with us the whole day. Cody and Jaden requested that the day start off with breakfast in bed. We served them their favorites-- dry cereal and donuts. All week long as we finished off their pack of donuts, the boys referred to their chocolate and powdered donuts as "dark skin" and "light skin" donuts. So funny!

After breakfast, the boys were gung-ho about playing board games. They brought down a whole stack of games from upstairs and piled them up in the order that they wanted to play them. We made it through just the first two before the boys decided to move on to something else. :)

During the afternoon, Grammy came over to help Mommy decorate cakes for the boys upcoming birthday party. Jaden and Cody liked watching the process for a while, especially because they got to snack on some Skittles!

While Mommy and Grammy finished up the cakes, Daddy took Jaden and Cody swimming in our neighborhood pool. For dinner, the boys requested their favorite meal-- chicken pesto pasta with bowtie noodles. For dessert we had brownies decorated with some extra frosting from their birthday cakes.

Happy Birthday, Jaden and Cody! We are so thankful that God placed the two of you into our family. Your daddy and mommy love you bunches!
