Yep, 6 weeks late but better late than never! For those of you that just started reading, the original party was set for March 28th but the kids got sick w/ a virus so we had to cancel it. April was booked for many family/friends so we were finally able to have the kids' first birthday party yesterday.
I was very concerned that everything wouldn't get done in time but I had some help (Sheila, Mom, & Todd). I couldn't have done it w/o them b/c I had kids to take care of at the same time. Go figure they would decide to only take ONE nap yesterday. I thought for sure they would be super cranky for the party but I have to say that they really behaved well & adjusted to all the people being there. Remember, this is the 1st time they have had that many people around them since they were born! The only one that was a bit timid & vocal when I left was Gabi. She got over it rather quickly though.
We went w/ Rubber Ducky as our theme. Excuse the hole in the wall. We are do-it-yourselfers & that was a project I started about 2 wks before I got pregnant w/ the kids.
Sofi decided to pull out all the books from the bookshelf in the kitchen.
All 3 babies getting their mini-cakes!
Ian digging in w/ reckless abandon!
Hmmmmm, should I dig in?
Gabi was very particular about how she dug in to her cake!
Sofi got upset again when we took away the rubber ducky candle. That's 2 for 2!
Ian really enjoyed his cake & dug in!
Mommy helping the kids play w/ their new toys!
Sofi really loved that balloon. She carried it EVERYWHERE!
