It was a big affair, with over 30 friends and family in attendance. My parents came from out of town. We had Hawaiian food, punch, cake, and a “Hello Kitty” theme for the party.
The girls had a good time. They took a forced nap from 10 am to 12 pm to minimize the risk of “melt down” during the party, and for the most part they were very well behaved during the party.
Although let’s be honest here. The girls are not ever going to remember this party. They will look at some photos of the party when they are older and ask, “Who’s that?” when they see who attended, but they will not have any personal recollection of their party.
No. This party was really for Mommy and Daddy. To celebrate the fact that WE MADE IT THROUGH OUR TWIN GIRLS’ FIRST YEAR!
In fact, if you look at this video, ask yourself: Who is smiling more, Mom and Dad, or the girls?
