Party Time!

Our birthday rounds started back in February. Seems like every weekend the twins and I have been to at least one if not two parties. So, believe me, there were geared up and ready by the time theirs rolled around! It's a wonder they even went to sleep the night before!!


Dressing themselves for the day in their current obsession - their Number Basketball shirts. Such a hit, we had to have two shirts each. Logan cries when his goes in the wash and he's been known to steal, er...borrow Austin's number until he gets his back. Logan also insisted on wearing "basketball" socks - ones that go all the way up to the knees...while Austin preferred his new "frog" socks (THANKS, TRACEY!) and lastly, to complete the outfit, "basketball" shoes which look a LOT like their winter boots, but Logan insisted they were not. They were just like basketball shoes (the high top black ones his older brother, Evan wears!). I figure you should be allowed to dress yourself on your very special birthday party day! Right? No matter how silly you may look. lol This is their 2nd annual picture in front of their very own special birthday tree.
...and last year's pic just to compare - grown a little, eh?

"The Van"

Our fellow gold medalist, Bryan!

Showcasin' Gary's great landscaping!

Love those eyelashes! (...as can only be captured on Tracey's Nikon D40!! I suffer from major camera envy!)

Incoming (...Birthday cakes, that is!)!!

Backyardians, of course!! Their absolute favorite show in the world!

Logan a little overwhelmed...

My house. My rules. And in my house, EVERYBODY gets their OWN very special birthday cake. Even if it is the exact same cake. And everybody deserves their own Happy Birthday song. Am I right? ....They seem to think so! ;-)

Logan and Van assisted Austin in the blowing out of his candles - he is still a little gun shy around fire ever since last years' "Mom forgot to stop the boy from touching his candle after he blew it out-OUCH!" incident.Hangin' with Miss Emily!

If you had asked Austin and Logan what they were getting for their birthday, their answer would a LOUD unanimous - "SCOOTERS!! " And Nonnie delivered!




And what's left to do at the end of a very special birthday day, except to crash!

Haha!!! LOVE the scooters!! But, eh hem...I don't see any helmets, knee pads, elbow pads, finger pads, nose pads...what's up with that? ;)

I am having some serious SLR envy.
