The Double Birthday

Once again, I'm up far too late but I wanted to make a quick post about last Monday, the 21st.  We celebrated a double birthday here; Gar turned 3 and Mag turned 1.  Time is flying and we are having fun!!!

Mag had a blast feeding himself.  We even gave him a fork.   It was too funny.

Gar had the best birthday ever.  I don't think I have ever seen a kid who was as happy on his birthday as he was.  He had everything he wanted - a blue balloon, cake and candles.  He's just too cute.  He knew this special day was for him (and Mag) and he was enjoying every minute of it.  
I really should turn this post into a monolog about how great these two little boys are and what has transpired over the past year, but I'll save that for another day.  In the mean time - Happy 3rd Birthday Garland and Happy 1st Birthday Magnus!!!  We love you so much.

Those photos just melt my heart, Jessica! I wish I were around more to see their cute little faces morph into handsome little men. That sounds weird, but I can't think of a better way to say it... I think I need to eat something. Miss and love you! Happy birthday to the boys!

Happy Birthday Boys! How cool that they share a birthday. My husband has 2 brothers who share a birthday. Gavin was born on their birthdays and they were honestly disappointed. Ha!

If only we could all recapture the awe and wonder of blue balloons...the world would be a more peaceful place.

To be quite honest, I have never lost my childlike adoration for cake. A great cake will always make me giddy.

Kiss them both for me.
Happy burfday boys!

Happy Bday Boys!! For some reason it's really hard for me to remember summer birthdays. Garland is so adorable..how he only wanted a blue balloon reminds me of the story about Ben when he could pick out anything he wanted in the entire world and he picked a gold fish... so sweet! Can't wait to see you guys!
