the doubleday bday


Hallelujah!  We made it!  God answers prayers : )  I haven't gone into labor yet and the twin's big day was a hoot!  I'm sitting here staring at my fat swollen feet and I have officially decided to SLOW down and try to go to bed before midnight (at least until this baby comes with his own ideas of when mommy should and shouldn't sleep).

"Owl" tell you who make the cake--not this bakerella, that's for sure!  No, it was much too yummy to have come from my oven.  My mother-in-love baked it and my sister-in-love decorated it.  Isn't it so cute?  From across the miles, my parents ordered a jumper for the birthday and the kids LOVED it!  Boston and Astair's second birthday was celebrated with a whole lotta love and a house full of family.  We did cheat and have it a little early this year.  In truth, the poor dears really only have a birthday every four years because they were born on leap day!
    

Of course, you know me, I couldn't resist making Astair this hair clip to match her outfit...


And then, after my friend showed me the cutest little tie she made for her baby boy, I just had to make some for my gang...


We partied.  We bounced off the walls (literally).  We ate cake.  Lots of it.



And then we partied some more.

My twin's are two.  My babies are now not so little anymore.  Sniff.   It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating Thad's second birthday and now he's my big boy.  Oh, how time flies when you're having this much fun!  

Note to God:  Thanks so much for the answered prayer!!  I'm ready whenever you are!  Let's have this baby!

Holly said...

I'm glad the party happened with no labor! Yay!! Happy (early) Birthday to Boston and Astair!

Joyeful said...

Thanks for all the sweet comments!!

@ Lesley-- my MIL uses one package of jello in a regular cake mix to make them moist! I'll have to get the recipe for the frosting from her, too, for you!

@ Lesley & Emily Jean-- I would love to post about the boy's ties and where the idea came from! I'll plan on it!

Lei said...

So glad mother nature gave you an extra day or two. Hope all goes smoothly when the big day arrives! God bless!

Abbey said...

The ties and bow came out cute! I guess the elastic on the tie worked for you! My little guy made it a dangerous weapon! The cake is precious! Hope the baby arrives soon for you-can't wait to see him!
