Whew! They are 2!


The girls had a great birthday despite not feeling very well that day. Beau met us at their favorite restaurant Blue Goose and they got LOTS of "molee" (aka guacamole) and sopapias. The favorite part of the day was getting mail! I put most of their b-day cards in the mailbox for them and they LOVED getting their own mail. Ms. Emily & I are still recovering. (think Halloween! I'll post video when my computer begins to act nice). That night after dinner we had their Birthday cupcakes. I love this bakery near us that has cupcakes with huge flowers on them in each of the girls colors. We even let them blow their own candles out. Ok, we assisted ~ alot!
Then bath, bed, and off to Noni & Pop-Pop's! The girls had a blast there!
JuJu quickly let my mom know which of her baby-proofing worked & which didn't. River gave her a quick smile and immediately wanted to know where Pop-Pop was. Skye took control of the remotes and the buttons on the TV & Rayne was a permanent cling-on to me, literally!
One of the best part of the weekend was having my Grandma come in from LA with my aunts Jeanne & June, and cousin Sarah, for the girls birthday. It was the first time they have seen the girls since last July. Needless to say, they had changed alot. My Grandma has 11 Great-grandkids with 2 more on the way. I am still trying to find the right thank-you note for the gift of the musical instruments, including a drum & recorder!
And then before you know it, we were back on the road again. Four & a half hours of Elmo, Veggie Tales & Signing Times later, we pulled into our drive way.
Thankfully the girls travel pretty well.

What cuties you have! I love the new pics at the top of your page. I'm thinking I may need to borrow JuJu in a few more months to help me test our baby proofing.
