Birthday Fun!!

Here is one of the only pictures we have of all of us as a family. As you can see, it is rather hard to get Josiah to "pose" for us. He was enticed with a cupcake on this occasion, but we still didn't get much of a smile. It was my birthday today and we had my Mom and Dad over to do a "photo op" cupcake/opening presents moment with the twins for their 1st birthday. We had cake for me later after we went to dinner.

Here is a fun shot of the boys eating their birthday cupcakes. They had a lot of fun eating the frosting! We thought they looked like clowns afterward! So funny!

Caleb boy looked like "The Hulk" after he was done eating and it took lots of washing up with scrubbing and soap to get the green off!

Here is Daniel boy with a nice red hand. After he was finished he looked like he had been bleeding! And again we did lots of scrubbing and cleaning of his face, head, and arms afterward!

Here is Josiah at the restaurant giving me his "I hate pictures" look. We ended up going to the "Thai Bistro" which is a place I really love. We tried going to a more kid-friendly place, but it was packed, so we went to my favorite instead. Josiah didn't care for the fare (as I suspected he wouldn't) and so Mom took him to McDonalds (which was nearby) to get him his dinner afterward.

This one is earlier in the day of our Josiah boy, when he was proud of his "Tall Horsie" he made with the Duplo Legos. And ummm....not sure it resembles a horse, but hey, he is being creative, so it's all good! I think it looks more like a tall tower with a tree on the top! He asked me after he made it if we could "take it to the fair." He is so excited about entering a Lego creation at the Puyallup fair. I told him we would practice a bit more and maybe take one to the fair next year. :)

My birthday is Dec. 5th and theirs is Dec. 7th. So it is real close, yes! They were due on Feb. 4th, so we expected them closer to my hubby's b-day on Jan 6th, but they were wanting to come out as a birthday present to me apparently!
