Ninja Style

We have all the boys costumes/superhero accessories/masks/etc. packed in the storage unit. Although many of their toys came to Opa's house with us, we decided some would just take up too much space and weren't worth the double packing/unpacking process. And although they get used frequently, imagination isn't dependent upon costumes!

A few days ago, a friend of mine from the gym brought two bags of hand-me-down clothes for Jonah to a training session. Jeanette has deemed us to be the ones she gives outgrown clothes to, and I am SO SO thankful! Most everything comes here just about the right size for Jonah, or ready for the next year. We got a new stash of basketball shorts and shirts for the summer, and a cute little robe as well.

The two big boys already got robes for Christmas, but this one was designed a bit shorter anyway. As soon as we pulled it out of the bag, Jonah and Reuben ran to their room and got their robes out of the closet and put them on. -Instant Ninjas-

We wrapped the newer one on Matthias, whose little face just lit up as he got to join "the boys", as he affectionately calls them, in their game. Much jumping, slicing, and intense face-making ensued, and my three little ninjas had a good time together.

Thankfully, these three ninjas weren't interested in fighting each other, just attempting to prove to Mommy how amazing their poses were and asking for me to "watch me!" as they demonstrated their moves. And although we're doing fine without costumes for now, I know when we unpack in the new house in 2-3 months, there is a lot more dressing up time ahead!
