It sure was interesting celebrating the girls’ birthdays at home…just one day apart. There was a lot of jealously when opening their presents on their special days.
#2 got a baby doll from us. She was overjoyed and has slept with her every night. So far, her name is "Yewwoa" (which I’m quite certain is really "Yellow").
#1 got some pink cowboy boots from her great-grandparents. I think she’s worn them every day since (and it’s a shame they are just her size, or almost too small).
The girls also got some matchy-matchy PJs. I don’t think they liked them at all. (You can also see a certain some one got a new watch, too…mommy and daddy did good this year!)
We did the girls’ presents at home on their actual birthday’s, then we had a party with some friends and family on Saturday.
Since the bounce house was such a success last year, and was requested again this year, we went for it. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect.
Cousins. Stopping for a fruit break.
The piñata. We let both girls use a baseball bat. With a lot of space around the area.
Decorating the cupcakes. Quite the success I must say. The sprinkles were a huge hit.
That’s cupcake love right there.
Bouncing with friends.
Spoonful of sprinkles? Yes, please Grammi.
And, Mr. Serious felt that cupcakes weren’t enough for blowing out candles, so I made a cake for each girl. "Happy Birthday" has been requested more than once since Saturday.
And, once the party was over, there were a couple party-goers that had tears because they weren’t ready to leave. Is it bad that we call that a success?
Once the guests left, Grammi got in the bounce house with her three grandkids and they bounced away.
And, that wraps up The Serious Girls’ Birthdays 2010!
I’m joining in with Wordless Wednesday.
