My (Belated) Birthday

We had such a nice time over the past few weeks. Last Thursday my dad came down to hang out with the boys and allow me to run a few errands on Friday. They had a good time spending the day together! Saturday night we celebrated our birthdays with a fancy dinner of lamb and german chocolate cake. Of course I burnt the first batch of pecans, so the frosting was less nutty then it should have been (though I thought it was pretty good!). It was great to see grandpa again!

On Sunday Mike and I went to the last of a class that we were taking. My mom watched the boys are her house. I think that Elliot had a great time crawling after Tiggy. It was a weekend full of grandparents. It's fun leaving the boys because they are so excited when we return. Every night when Mike gets home Elliot and Henry go nuts! This photo was taken in the morning, when the boys watch Mike getting ready to go to work each day.

On my birthday the weather was fairly mild so I took the babies outside for an Easter photo shoot. I was hoping to get a good picture of the two of them. Turns out that they were much more interested in putting the plastic easter eggs in their mouths than posing.

Luckily the day was saved by a friend who bought cupcakes and taught us to sign "Happy Birthday" with our babies. It's been quite some time since I've been sung to! Later that night Shannon came over and put the boys to bed while Mike and I went to a fancy dinner. I didn't figure out what I wanted as presents, so Mike bought fancy sheets for the bed. I can't wait to get them all washed and make the bed. I love clean sheet night! It turned out to be a pretty great birthday weekend!

I'm having a good time making every single person at my office look at these excellent new pictures of my giant, cute nephews.

Does that mean your coworkers aren't gathering around your computer for a picture of cake?

They do all ask what it is... it just makes me hungry!
