The Twins are 2!

It's funny how some days seem interminable, but at the same time it's crazy to think that my babies are 2 years old.  They are no longer babies.  They are smart, incredible little people who can strip themselves naked, rock their crib over to the light switch to be able to turn the light on, play "king of the mountain" on the piano, walk backwards and spin around in circles until they are too dizzy to stand.  They are cute, and fun, and are developing their sense of humor.  Annie does this wide-eyed, crazy stare to make me laugh. 

Today we celebrated two years of their life.  There were presents, pizza, cupcakes and friends over.  It was a party!  (Although we missed having Daddy there for part of it.)

We reached the age that opening presents is fun.  Christmas should be a blast!  (Provided we can actually wait until Christmas morning...  Otherwise, it could be a blast several times over....)

 Our friends gave Annie and Maddie baby dolls with strollers.  Oh my goodness, it was the Best. Gift. Ever.
 For about 45 minutes, they walked their babies all over the house.  Good thing they had other new toys for our friends to play with.
Elizabeth and best buddy Elijah. 
 Cupcake time!  Miss Maddie is lovin' her mint frosting.
There are no blowing out the candles pictures this year.  I was solo from dinner time on, and it just didn't work out.  They did make some great faces as they tried to blow out their candles.  It was more noise than air, so they had a little help.
Happy birthday Annie and Maddie!  We are so thankful you are a part of our family.

You have such a cute family. I hope you able to enjoy life more as the girls are coming out of infancy... I'm sure it's been a long haul!
