I have lots to blog about, but first things first! The birthday party! It went well, in spite of the fact that the boys were grumpy little monsters for the first half or so. And even though I forgot to put out the cute striped paper straws I bought. Ah well.
Kristina and I spent a lot of time baking, cooking, decorating, etc. Just so you know.
The party was at our friends’ pizza place, which is an old gas station. They had a tent set up from a Christmas tree sale the weekend prior, which also explains the strange mix of birthday and Christmas decorations.
After some time at the park, but before they smeared frosting all over their faces, I wanted to get their three year picture. You’ve seen how well THAT turned out already…
After that debacle, it was cupcake time! We sang three times, and each boy blew out his candle.
Lots of their friends came, including their birthday buddies, the quads. The girls’ birthday party had been that morning, but I’ll have to post about that later. There was a pony!
After that, it got too dark to take pictures, but just picture the chaos of gift-opening with paper flying everywhere while I desperately tried to keep track of who gave them what. Let’s just say our friends were very generous.
The shirts, which were awesome, were made by my friend Sara. She can make all kinds of shirts. Here’s her blog, you can contact her from there.
