Birthday Fun!

As I've already mentioned, it was the girls birthday today. We had a great day, so I decided I would post again...I know, I know-twice in one day that's just crazy!:) This picture is proof to me of a good day because they are sitting willingly and smiling for the camera. That NEVER happens! This is totally a first! Usually when they see the camera they run away or scream or cry. I have been able to get maybe one of them smiling, but not both.
Anyway, we started out by going to breakfast. I guess it was more like brunch. We rode the brand new front runner train to a mom-and-pops diner type restaurant. Matt rides this train every day to work, but it was a new experience for the kids and me. It was pretty cool and the kids loved it. I don't imagine it would be very fun if it was crowded, but today it was perfect. There weren't many other people and the kids could explore and be as noisy as they wanted. (I forgot my camera, dang it!) Brunch was yummy! I think we all ate too much!
After that we came home and the girls took a nap, while Matt and I cleaned house, wrapped presents, and made cakes.
Tonight we had a party with my family for the girls. We started off with some pizza. Then we all chatted for a while. After that we were ready for presents. Unfortunately the girls weren't very into this idea. They each opened up a present from my brother and his wife. They were baby dolls. After this, all they wanted were those babies and they didn't care about any of the other presents. (Sorry everybody!) But thanks to everyone that came and for the gifts you brought, too.
After I finished opening their presents, we talked and laughed hysterically (my family tends to do that a lot. We always laugh until we cry! Do any of you do that?) Then we had cake and ice cream. MMMM...Good. I made the cake and it really didn't turn out very well.....Let's just say it tasted a whole lot better than it looked...

What a great day!:)

Today's post/meme is about TKs birthday party! I love that you rode front-runner for the outing. And the top picture is perfect. They have the exact same expression on their faces! Oh wait, they're twins right?

♡ I love how you dress your girls! The same outfits just different colors! My sister does the same thing with her ID twin girls! :)

They look so grown up now... losing that baby face. It goes by SO fast. I cannot believe my twins will be in 2 in August.

It sounds like SUCH a fun day!

Happy birthday girls. Wow, I can't believe they both sat so nicely and smiled soooo beautifully for the camera. It's such a rare treat if I can get both of mine in the shot at the same time, let alone looking at me and smiling :)

Your girls are just adorable.

I can't believe how much they have grown. They are so adorable and fun to play with too (not that we get to play with them enough though).
