Birthday Boys: Henry and Holden are One!

The boys had a good and low-key birthday. We got a few pictures of them, and a decent family shot. They were not in a smiling mood! :) They enjoyed the frosting on their cake, mostly sucking it off the candles. I took a video, but it's kind of long. Some day I'll get our videos organized and post it on Youtube! They got to open their wooden train set, which they liked. But they mostly want to chew on the animals. I wanted to get a shot with their names spelled in blocks (since we did a maternity picture that way) but every time I'd spell the name, they'd grab a letter and eat it! So we'll have to try that again sometime.

 We did some pictures at an apple orchard, so we got ourselves some apples on the way out. They enjoyed their new wagon, which was another one of their presents! :) After we got home and they took a nap, we sat outside for awhile. Grandma Suttner and Uncle Evan joined us for the evening and the boys got to open some presents! Grandma got them some new blankets she made them and some cars and trucks. So they were definitely spoiled in the present department that day! They got some of their favorite foods, bananas and muffins for breakfast, and sweet potato fries for dinner! I think they had a good first birthday.

Year in Review: Watch Us Grow!

I know I posted these every month, and also on Facebook. But in case you missed it, here are the monthly pictures all together. :) I think I'll probably keep doing it for another year, but probably not worry about matching outfits, etc. I'll probably just try to snap one of the two of them together, which gets harder and harder as they get older and more mobile! So cute and funny to look back on our year. I'm so glad I made the effort to do it each month, even though I didn't always get a great shot!

Family Fun

Alex made some delicious ribs and had BOTH sets of grandparents over for dinner! So that was pretty fun. The boys got plenty of attention that night! And the other pictures are ones I tried to snap with family members. Now that they're older I think I forget to get as many pictures of them with family and friends. So next time I see you, remind me! :) Of course I always want more pictures of ME with them as we'll work on that, too.

Yay! Finally found an uncle shirt! It says "My Uncle is Awesome" if you can't read it.

Playdate fun!

It was our turn to host the Friday playdate again, and I was determined to get some good pictures! Or at least that all the babies are on the move, it's even harder to get some cute ones! :) The cutest moment was when Rachael was reading to the babies and every single kid was gathered around her listening!!! She was singing and acting with the book and they were enthralled! Anyway, playdates are kinda crazy/messy/loud now that the babies are mobile and eating real food and into everything. But it's still so much fun! I think a good time was had by all.
