And just like the twins are 1!!! Sometimes I feel like we blinked and suddenly they were toddlers - other times it feels like this day took forever to get here. It's been a crazy whirlwind year, and while I have had my moments I wouldn't trade it for anything.
We celebrated the weekend before with all our families. Gammy and Granddaddy came up from Raleigh and Grammy, Pops, Great Pat and Great Mike, Jordan and Christopher all came up from Waynesville. I had made banners with their photos from each month that turned out great (as well as a few other decorations). We also got some fun balloons. I made banana cupcakes with cream cheese icing for the twins :D
So we started off with snacks while the twins ate some lunch and then it was cupcake time! This was the first real time they had eaten any cake... let's just say it was pretty funny. They didn't know what to do with the cakes - it took a little convincing but then we were good to go.
Then it was present time! We're still figuring out how to open presents and tear paper so maybe next year they'll be able to do it themselves. Luke and Graham got lots of fun toys, clothes and new shoes!
After all the presents there was lots of playing and then it was time for a nap!!
So glad everyone could come up for a visit. :)
We celebrated again on their actual birthday with a trip to our local mexican restaurant (for mom and dad) and then by eating more cupcakes (which we really got into this time!).
Overall we can't believe their one! What a year it has been!
