An Early Birthday Celebration!

This past weekend we had the whole famn damily (and some wonderful friends) out at my mom's to help us celebrate TT & C-McC's birthdays (a tad [*ahem* a whole month] early)


Rented a bouncy castle - OMG, what a brilliant idea that was, the kiddies spent the afternoon in & out, in & out, in & out!  Much better than in & out, in & out, in & out of the house. 

My mama has a trampoline so if the bouncy castle wasn't crazy enough for them, they could bounce around to their hearts content on the trampoline (with parental supervision/participation of course)

Actually, my mama has a pretty well-stocked house.  Lots of toys/activities for the kiddies (a puddle pool, sand box and tonnes of outdoor toys... she's well prepared for when her grandbabies come over to visit!)

We did a BBQ (hamburgers and hot dogs, easy-peasy and my mother-in-law brought some tasty pizza), and my awesome family helped with some salads (homemade macaroni, potato, noodle salad and some deviled eggs... soooo yummy!)

I made a tonne of cupcakes and a dragon cake, and I totally forgot to get a "finished" picture.

It was a great day to gather with family and celebrate the births of two of the most important men in my life. 

There are days where I wonder what the hell I've gotten myself into.  Days where I swear my children are wild, jacked-up monkeys with a severe case of the crazies... but this - family - this is what life is all about and I thoroughly enjoyed celebrating the two lives that I.brought.into.this world.
