A Little Recap...

Last Wednesday, the boys got to attend a huge Beach Bash with their Cubbies friends at church.
 
Aren't they just the cutest little beach bums?  
They wanted to hold hands for the picture like they did at the ocean last year!

It was such a well-thought out, fun party with a purpose!
The kids all took gently used toys to donate to Children and Families of Iowa.
They listened to a great Bible Story.
Played fun games!

The night was also full of sugary fun!
 
We made Amanda's Amazing Sugar Cookies and turned them into ocean scenes:


YUM!

The children also took a small toy to use in a toy exchange game!
The boys were so excited and proud of their *new* toys!
Carson got a cute little set of blue cookie cutters and kitchen utensils.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Hearts, Stars, and Moons!

McClain got a pack of bracelets and rings.  
He ecstatically told his teacher he had never gotten his own bracelets before and loooooved them!
I was a little concerned with my girly boy....until the next morning, he came to me with a bracelet and said, "Actually Mom, I got this jewelry just for you!  I've never gotten to give you jewelry before!  Don't you just love it 'cuz I love you!"
Ah, melt.my.heart!

Thanks for an awesome beach party Liz, Jessica, and company!
It was great!!!

Those cookies are adorable, just like your boys! Addie had a ton of fun too - I'm glad you captured a her in one of your pics. :) Aren't those Cubbies teachers the BEST?

I so hope my boys are 1/2 as cute as yours when they get to this age!
What a fun party theme. Thanks for sharing it :)

btw (totally off topic) - Just wanted to let you know I have been using your banana muffin recipe for months now (we have them once a week), but instead of banana I use 1/2 cup pumpkin. They are yummy & a big favorite around here!

1. Yes, the cutest beach bums ever. It was so fun seeing the excitement in their little faces.

2. That is SO sweet - the bracelets and rings for you. Such a sensitive little guy. You'd better incorporate that gift into your Easter outfit.

3. The cookies are AMAZING.

4. Those AWANA leaders are pretty awesome. You should make them cookies every week.

5. Yes, let's get Peter Marie's little boy to Cubbies!
