We had a wonderful weekend with our families to help celebrate Isabelle’s second birthday and the upcoming first birthday for the twins! Auntie Megan or Meeeeaaagy as Isabelle calls her, was the first to arrive. We almost had to put our whole weekend on hold as a snowstorm threatened our out of town guests. Megan was the first to brave the highways and made is safely by lunchtime. Isabelle and the twins were thrilled to have another person to climb all over and play with.
Saturday was the big day. Both sets of Grandparents were able to come as well as Uncle Rob. Our house can’t hold much more than this. There were 8 adults, 3 children and 2 dogs and almost not enough square feet.
We woke the kids up from their naps so that we could get a start on the sea of gifts. Dinner was a wonderful BBQ and salads. Yum! Followed up by cupcakes decorated by Megan and myself! We have talked about opening up a cake business! Add that to my list of things to do!!
Isabelle had a wonderful time having a “sleepover” with Megan. Isabelle was going to sleep in our room but Megan was willing to give it a try and let Isabelle sleep in her own bed while she was on the air mattress. It actually worked out really well. Isabelle was happy to share her room with her favourite Aunty!
The kids were certainly spoiled. Ian and I have to go though some of their old toys and put some of them away. They’ve outgrown some of them and others they just don’t have any real interest in. And well it’s just time to make room for the new stuff. I still have some balloons to take down and tidy up a little more from the party. We had a great time and are thankful the storm didn’t stop anyone from being able to be here.
40 minutes until the rugrats are up again. Some much needed snooze time for me.
