Birthdays, Birthdays all around!

I realize that I am too far behind in my posting to ever properly catch up so we will do a post about both Vivian and Gordon's birthdays.

Vivian was so excited to finally be able to have a friend birthday party of her own.  She's been waiting forever!  She had a Disney themed party and this time I tried not to get too overwhelmed with planning.  She invited quite a few friends as well, and about 10 or so showed up so we had a good group, but not too crazy.  We played pin the ears on Mickey, Disney Scene it, Face Painting, Paint Spinner and coloring.  We had pizza, cake and ice cream and it was fun seeing all her friends in their Princess and pirate gear.  It was a good day, and I was thankful to have Melodee there to help me out. We  celebrated a couple days early because our ward was having a ward temple day on her actual birthday. She was a little confused by it all, but we got our traditional 7-11 slurpees so that made it seem more like her actual birthday.

 Gordon is 1!! I can't believe that little turkey is a year old.  This past year has been crazy, but he sure makes things fun, a little more chaotic, but fun:)  The first birthday is always a little anticlimactic.  I just made him a little cake and we had presents afterward.  He's finally eating solids a little better so was able to get some good helpings of smooshed cake into his mouth.  He was a little upset in the end because he didn't like being all messy:)

We are sure lucky and blessed to have these little munchkins.  They keep us on our toes and bring us so much joy!
