Babies' First Birthday

Despite being woken from their naps early, forced to change clothes (something Grace detests) and the house being full of "strangers," the girls had a fantastic first birthday.

They had a chance to meet cousins they have never met, play with friends they haven't seen in a long time, and they got some good grandma time, too.

We owe a huge thanks to everyone who came, especially since the invitations were so late. Turns out you need to be a super organized person to have a birthday and Christmas so close together. And super organized is not how I would describe my home life right now.

But good times were had by all.

By far, the best part of the whole day was watching the girls dig into their first birthday cake. Claire's strategy was just to keep stuffing it in and hope that no one told her mom that she was eating that much sugar. Grace's strategy was to just look at it and wonder what in the world she was supposed to be doing with it.

But eventually, Grace really got going.

And Claire called it quits.

And Scott ate the leftovers.

Happy first birthday to my favorite little lovies!!
