The Twins Second Birthday!

WOW!  I know I say it all the time, but seriously, where has the time gone? It seems like I was just in the hospital spending my days in the NICU just waiting to bring my babies home.  I'm so thankful that we were able to celebrate 2 years with our precious Payton and Parker on January 20, 2012!
We started the day off by waking them up singing "Happy Birthday to you" :)!  Then we let them run into the living room to see their present.  We got them a table and chairs, and of course I had to add a couple balloons.  These two are obsessed with balloons!! 
 Just woke up, dressed and ready to celebrate...
 Here comes Parker.  She spotted the balloons :)...
 And now Payton.  Sweet smile...

 I don't think they care one bit about the table :)

Next it was off to the donut shop for donut holes, yum!!  So happy that daddy was able to spend the morning with us!  After donuts, Daddy went to work and I took the girls to the library to look at books and put puzzles together.  There's not a whole lot you can do on a cold January day. 
Then we went home to eat lunch and take a nap!  We ended the day with chick-fil-a and birthday cupcakes!!  It was a fun day!

 Parker takes her time!  So happy about her donut holes :)
 Since it was their bday, I decided to let them try a chocolate glazed donut!  Payton loved it!
 Parker was a little hesitant at first, but she eventually ate it and loved it at as well!

All these from the library are taken from my iphone...

I love this picture of them just giggling at each other while "reading" their books :)
 Singing happy birthday to the girls :) (please excuse the Christmas and Easter PJs, sometimes that's just how things go ;)!)

 Payton trying to eat the whole thing at once, ha!

 What a mess!
Parker took a couple teeny tiny bites before she decided she liked it, haha!

Payton and Parker, you have no idea the joy you bring to my life!  I didn't know how in the world I would be able to be a mom to twins, but God knew what He was doing, and I can't imagine my life without you two sweet girls!  I have so much to learn, so I just keep praying that God will show me each day how to be the best mom I can to you girls.  No doubt we have our 'days' where I think I could pull my hair out, and yours ;), but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I want you to know that I (and daddy) love you more than you'll ever know, but that God loves you even more than that.  I love being your mommy!  I love you both so much!  Happy 2nd Birthday!
