Every year we celebrate Garrett and Lexi's birthdays together. Their birthday's are very close so we throw one family party for the both of them. They don't know any different yet, and hopefully we can keep it that way for a while ;)
I moved the house around a little bit and made a formal dining room in our used to be piano area. It worked wonderfully for entertaining. We had both sides of the family over and had a wonderful time. We are blessed to have both families get along so well.
I asked the kids what they wanted to eat for their birthday party dinner and all they wanted was homemade pizza. I really wanted to make ribs, but thought I wouldn't hear the end of it. I finally compromised a little bit and made stromboli. It was okay, but nothing like ribs :)
Aunt M. bought a new puppy while she was in town and brought it over to play with our new pups. Lexi took over the whole time and was rarely seen without little chowder.
Lexi must have been bored with adult talk because she hid out under the table for a while. :)
I could never get a good picture of both Garrett and Lexi. They will hate me in years to come for the horrible job I did taking pictures.
Lexi received a barbie movie, clothes, a candy jewelry making kit, a barbie, shoes, a coloring purse, a giant coloring book, and a jewelry bead kit. Thank you everyone so much for her presents...especially the clothes. ;) Now I know why parents get so excited when the kids get clothing.
Garrett received lots of Bible man videos, a battleship game, shoes, clothes, books, and a guess who game. Thank you everyone so much for his gifts.
This is my brother.
I love the bumbo seat. Whoever invented it is a genius. Right now at this stage it is a huge blessing. Breanna only likes to be sitting completely upright, but cannot on her own so this is wonderful.
