Wow. My little girls are growing up so fast.
Two years ago today, at 5:13pm Hannah was born. 5 minutes later at 5:18pm Leah arrived and our entire world felt complete. It was the most memorable life changing day of my life. And now two years later, they have morphed from the little 5 and a half pound babies to such spirited, loving, active children who make me smile every day.
We had their party today and it went wonderfully. We have such a loving family and as always, everyone did too much. The girls got a swing set as a joint family gift and it was a huge hit. They will gladly sit in those swings for hours while we push them.
They decided on a Minnie theme. Yes, it was the girls decision. I thought it was going to be Elmo up until about a month ago, and they got really into Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. All the characters are well loved but they really like Mickey and Minnie. So when I asked them what birthday theme they wanted and giving them a huge list of choices, it was Minnie they chose.
So I, being the way that I am, went overboard as usual. I got the girls some Minnie dresses (costumes) to wear - that will also be their halloween costumes. Unfortunately they didnt wear the ears but I didnt really expect them to.
I made the cake as well. Thats kind of my thing. I always want to make the cakes. This time I decided to try a 3 tier cake based on a picture I saw. All I can say is THANKS Wilton supplies. And cake decorating is an expensive hobby.
The entire family came it seemed, and the house was full. We missed Aunt Katy and Uncle Jason though who were out of town. But the girls always enjoy playing with their cousins who were able to come.
I am exhausted after such an eventful day. My babies are two. I am going to have to keep saying that. My babies are two. And I am so grateful that I plan only 1 party a year instead of two! Ah the perks of having twins!
