Dylan & Charlie had their birthday this past Wednesday. One. Can you even believe it?!? We celebrated their birthday this past Sunday at our house. We woke up in the morning to massive amounts of rain. Mind you, our party was to be held in our backyard. I was planning on about 30 people being there and I just did not want the chaos in my house. During the terrential (sorry, probably spelled wrong) rain, Brandt and I stood outside in it and wondered how we all of a sudden found ourselves in Kauai. I love that kind of rain, don't get me wrong, but not on our Party Day. I checked the weather channel online and they said it would clear up until 4. My party started at 4:30. So we waited. I checked again about 2pm and it said the rain wouldn't begin again until 9. Ok. I could live with that so we set up shop. It was a great party. Good company, good food, good babies, and good weather. Best part, however, was the cakes. My sweet sister-in-law is a cake-maker extrodinaire and made the cakes for us and the boys. They looked like this:
I know it probably sounds stupid but I haven't given my babies cake. They've had some sweet things but not much. I especially was adament that they not have cake until the big day. I think they liked it. Here's the play by play:
There ya go. Get it boys!
Ok, we got this down now. Happy as can be sitting here eating pieces of cake. At least Charlie is. My A.D.D. child is already ready to go find something else to do.
Love this of Charlie. Dad is trying to convince Dylan to eat more cake.
This is D & C playing that morning. They would push the buttons over and over and so you would hear "twinkle, twink, twinkle, twinkle, twi, twi, twinkle, twink..." over and over and over and over. You get the point, right? So that was just the cow. Charlie was doing the same thing but to another song with the monkey. Brandt and I have bought their kids a set of drums, clappers, anything that is loud and obnoxious so we are reaping the benefits of payback. It worked Tree...good job on the toy choice.
Thank you everyone who came to celebrate Dylan & Charlie's birthday. We had such a good time and will have so many good memories. You have all been so great to help us through this first year with two babies. We would have never survived without you. xoxoxo
