TMNT Birthday Party

As promised, here is our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party for Target!  Part of the party’s agenda was to first have each kiddo decide what Turtle they wanted to “be” for the party.

Star Wars Partay!

By Jenna: Okay so I am *technically* retired from throwing birthday parties but this year with Quinn & Lolly’s 7th and 1st Birthday falling within days of each other I could not resist throwing them a joint party.
