1st Birthday Party!!!

Eli and Owen had their 1st birthday party today!  Here are some pics ...


Does he look like a grandpa or what?


They weren't quite sure what to make of all the fuss at first ...


But they soon figured it out





Grandpa Brian is teaching a new use for a party hat ...

and Eli learned quick




Sometimes you just gotta get on top of it




Their first cupcake

Eli grabs the whole things and in the mouth it goes



Owen take a little more time ...






Its a happy birthday!

until ... its not (I think the ice cream was all gone)

So cute! It is still hard to tell them apart in their pictures. Have they already outgrown the sand pile. Looks like a nice one that will keep the cats out, too. The boys do resemble Allison's Dad.

they recently got haircuts so now its a little harder to tell them apart. I think Eli looks just like Allison and her mom. Neither of them look like any of us.

One year old! I can feel the joy they spread around! They may not have the Buriff look yet but you know how much kids change over the years. Either way they are too cute for words and I want to play with them!
