|I bought this birthday banner at Hobby Lobby. I love it.|
|Also this cute table runner is a favorite. They're both favorites.|
|Bran muffins and sausage links--the breakfast of birthday boys.|
|I even used our special birthday plates.|
|They liked lounging and eating. But they weren't such fans of the crumbs they had to brush off later that night.|
That afternoon two special visitors arrived: Grandpa Al and Grandma Judy! We had the party after eating make-your-own salad for dinner (otherwise known as the Jones Family Buffet).
|Flashing their new age for the camera, yo.|
|They got a lot of great presents.|
|Iron Man guys.|
Cameron is really into Mustangs, because he wants to like everything his big brother likes. So he asked for "a Mustang cake."
|Add some candy and pop a toy on top. Amateurs, do not attempt.|
|Luckily I had Tyce to build the little Lego set for me; otherwise this would have been a pretty lame cake. I should have finished the edges on the green. No invitation to Ultimate Cake-Off for me.|
|"I am 100% awesome. And so are my Lego Star Wars guys, which I plan to organize neatly in their original packaging, cataloging each piece by usage."|
|"So Mr. Candle, we meet again. I shall snuff you out for another year, for I am . . . The Ninja."|
The next morning everyone went to the skate park.
(And I slept in. Because I was actually under the weather, and besides--party-throwing is work, I tell ya.)
So now we have two awesome 6-year-olds! I hope they had a great day--I hope they know how special they are to our whole family.
And in other good news, today is the twins' family anniversary! Five years ago today they came to live with us, the cutest 1-year-olds in the world. That day our whole family's lives changed--definitely for the better.
