First Birthday - Whose Party Is It?

Katherine and Caroline turned the big ONE last Friday, and to celebrate, we threw the girls a birthday party on Saturday.

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?

Happy Birthday Katherine and Caroline!

P.S. – For you parents out there, Safeway gives you a FREE birthday cake for your child’s first birthday. For twins, we got TWO free cakes. What a deal!

Happy B-day Girls! And congrats to your parents for a successful first year x2! I wish I could have been there to celebrate. Can we do it all over again when we're in town? I think I hear Dina's laugh on the video, could it be? See you soon!
