The twin's 1st bday came and went too quickly. With the winter months and smaller apartment living, I wasn't sure where we could possibly celebrate. Dylan's worked out to be the perfect place for a baby-birthday who's first bday is typically the first time to indulge in sugar. Sugar high has a completely new meaning to us now.
I expect that most of my children's bdays will be very low key. My parents said it best though--that we're celebrating the miracle of their safe arrival/good health and that we actually survived the year in great spirits. I appreciate both Andrew's family and mine own for coming out to celebrate with us. & now my babies are walking all over the place. Does that make them toddlers?
Invitation idea from here.
I had something different in mind for a smash cake. My boys just kind of picked at it.

The florescent lighting inside as well as the natural light from outside threw me for a picture loop. Thanks Diana for sending me your pics.
