Tomorrow is the girls 2nd birthday if you can believe it! We had a party on Saturday, and it was a blast! It was a farm theme, complete with petting zoo. Everyone asked me how many sets of twins there were, and there were 6 plus our girls. Anyway, here is some pre-party silliness!

This is the first party I've planned almost all by myself. My consultants were: Jill, my mom, and Jill's mom. I could not have pulled it off without you all! Thank you to everyone else that helped clean, set-up, break down, and clean again! Let's do it again in a few years. And, to our guests, thanks for coming! We hope you had a blast.
