The Twins are 4!

 I am still in shock that my sweet girls are four years old. We spent all day Friday celebrating. The girls requested eggs and bacon for breakfast, chick-fil-a for lunch and macaroni and cheese for dinner. They asked for "pink icing" on their cake so I made them a strawberry cake with strawberry cream cheese icing. It was divine. We had a great day. We had a quick trip to the zoo in the morning and a nice night at home as a family. I have loved the simplicity of this non-birthday-party birthday. I enjoyed my girls and they had a great time just being home with our crew. We still have JJ (can't post pics of him on the internet) and they loved getting to spend their birthday with him. I am thankful for their laughter, raspy voices and the blessing of their relationship with each other. These girls can definitely fight, but they really, really love each other. And we love them. :)

  1. Love it. That was a super day for all of you! The "simplicity" is wonderful--and of course, not-so-simple to children. Heck, it's not-so-simple to me, who wouldn't love a birthday day like that!
