Party Time

We had Emma and Josh's birthday party on Saturday. We had 17 family members there, including Dan and me. The party was so much fun and the story can be told with the pictures.

Emma and Josh got up right when people were arriving. I dressed them in their birthday onesies and let them come down the hall.

Josh seemed overwhelmed by all of the people (which is so not like him) and he wanted to be held a lot. He was ok if he was eating or opening up presents though.

Emma wore a pink tutu and seemed to like all the people. She walked all around the living room to see everyone and only cried when I first brought her out.

We had some appetizers to eat. I made spinach dip and my mom brought stuffed mushrooms. We also had a cake for everyone but Emma and Josh had cupcakes with cute Sesame Street candles in them.

Emma and Josh got tons of cute presents including a Riding Toy that looks like a Bee from my sister, Land of Nod chairs from my parents and a kitchen set from Dan's parents. They helped me open some of the presents...

...and some they just played with!

After presents, we had cake. We sang happy birthday to Emma first and then to Josh. I put their cupcake in front of them and was amazed to see that Emma dug right in!

Josh looked at his cupcake for awhile and after some prodding, he started eating it too.

They both couldn't believe I was actually letting them eat it!

We stopped to take a family picture before we cleaned them up.

After the cupcakes, we spent the rest of the time hanging out with family. It was such a nice day!
