The birthday weekend in Twinkle Town was most fun. We had lots of cake, laughs and plenty of smiles. David & Daniel had their little friend stay the night on Friday (their birthday) and we went and had Mexican and lots of cake back at the house. This year the boys wanted their own cakes. Daniel wanted a strawberry "8" and orange is his favorite color. David wanted a cookie cake with soccer balls. They deserved it... I mean no one else but a twin/multiple has to share a birthday cake. It really is sort of rude. It was double work, but worth seeing their little smiles.
Anna had her manicure/pedicure birthday party on Saturday and it was very girlie and fun. Julie made her tutu and my friend made her shirt. I painted the birthday girls nails myself. Her cake was fun. I made it up as I went along. Fun Times.
Thank you to my sister for having me for the weekend. She says I was "grouchy" but after 3 cakes, a long week at work and a long drive to see her, I was a bit of a grouch, I admit. The kids love the grouchy Aunt Abby though. They think it is funny. I am a source of joy and do my part to provide laughter. I am glad I succeeded this past weekend.
Samuel was M.I.A in all these pictures because he hiked 13.2 miles and camped out with his Scout Troop. He was so proud of himself Saturday night and we were most proud of him too....and his Daddy. He did the hike also.
