The Two Become One {Year}

The twinkies turned ONE this past week.  That can't be right, can it?  Hard to believe it has been a year; but it's equally as hard to remember life without them.  They sure bring a lot of smiles and giggles to this home.

WARNING - lots of pictures!!

My sister Carrianna, her hubby Eric, and their sweet 8-month-old boy, Reese, came to visit us last weekend.  

We had a great excuse to party.

We hung up some decorations and made the cutest "smash cakes" for them.

In the past, I have usually offered the birthday baby a cupcake or cookie.  No big deal.  No big mess.  

But this time, I decided to cut loose.  We stripped them down to their diapers, sang a loud "Happy Birthday", presented them with their own cake, and stood back to watch.

They did not disappoint.

The Princess and the Dragon began with a simple inspection.

Ryan wasted no time.

Jack needed to fully investigate.


 All it took was one bite.


Reese was cheering his cousins on.

Jack stayed relatively clean compared to Miss Piggy.  She wanted to roll in it.


Jack soon had his hands covered in awesome blue icing-ness.  I innocently asked, "Where's Jack?"  And his immediate response was to slap his hands over his face per our usual peek-a-boo routine.


As all first birthday parties should, this one ended with baths in the kitchen sink.

Happy sweet {and messy} birthday, Jack and Ryan Elizabeth!  You have brightened our lives.
