one tired out little guy
first time letting me put pig tails in her hair-not even, but they're actually still in her hair!

Well we have had another great day here. It was 56 degrees. I took D'Angelo, Adeline & Auggie to see Seussical the Musical this morning with a few of our friends. Afterwards we went to Red Robin for lunch. We had a nice time especially since it is kid friendly & I never feel like we are bothering any other patrons...our party consisted of 5 adults and eight children. D & Addie went to Gaga and Papa's this afternoon. Auggie was upset that he was being left behind until I reminded him that we would be going to Josh's pancake breakfast tomorrow morning.

On another note, we went to the Flower & Garden show last Sunday so I wanted to post a few pictures:

We thought we had a great weather day yesterday at 41 but today it is 50 here! Sunny, beautiful and 50 degrees. Yesterday morning Grandma Debbie came over and we all took a nice walk over to the playground where the kids had fun running around and enjoyed the slides.

X & O Turn One!

Xavier and Oliver turned 1 on Saturday March 8th.

I can't believe how fast the year has gone. They are both anxious to get walking. Xavier is taking 4-5 steps at a time while Oliver gets himself across the room. They are enjoying climbing everything possible. They just laugh out loud when I catch them climbing from the couch onto the windowsill where they bang on the glass. They are not babies anymore....they are on the fast track to toddler hood. I guess I can blame that on them having 3 active siblings. They eat dinner with us and drink regular milk like everyone else. They still have their bottles but are drinking from sippy cups here and there. Amazing how it changes from 1st child to 4th & 5th...D'Angelo never had a bottle after his first birthday; Adeline just gave up her bottle 4 months ago and Auggie will still take one if you give him the opportunity.

We didn't have a big party but we did have cake, balloons and gifts. The big guys had been so excited to have the twins birthday party. The kids all went to play with friends Saturday morning for a few hours, then we came home and decorated the house together. Decorating with the help of three little guys is interesting. After dinner we had cake and presents. D, Ade & Aug love singing happy birthday over and over so that I will re-light the candles again and again so that they can help the babies blow them out.

ignore the dates on the pictures...the camera can't keep the date set
