In the Blink of an Eye. . .

Each Spring we have a BIG birthday~actually two. . .
This was then. . .they were so tiny. . .
This is now. . .not quite so tiny. . .they're 5'4"! They are amazing, funny, happy, smart and silly. They are a force to be reckoned with. . .just ask their siblings and cousins! Together, they'll love you, tease you and if you'll allow, use you for tickle torture! Though very much their own person, they are also very much twins. They'll play for hours together completely content with only each others company, they have a bond which is truly remarkable.
We, of course, had to celebrate with cake and ice cream~Colby, chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and Bethany, vanilla cake with vanilla icing. Go figure.
We always do birthday banners which reflect current interests~it's amazing how those change over the course of a year. . .
And for good measure, one of all 5 of them~this is what makes my life so very sweet.

  2. Yippee, what a wonderful day to celebrate. Happy birthday to the twins! I can't believe they are 5'4" at age 11. (I'm 5'5" and just a few years older.) Looks like a fun day with the whole gang there to celebrate together. And those cakes... mmmm.
