Happy Birthday Max & Luke!

Max & Luke are officially 5 years old today! We had their big party on Sunday with family and friends.  They were so excited to open their presents and patiently waited while everyone ate dinner first.  We celebrated with batman decorations, cake and a pinata.  Fun stuff!

It is hard to believe they are 5.  Sometimes I feel like I have missed more of their five years because there are two!  On the other hand, what a challenge and double the fun it has been raising them side by side-the best of friends.  They have HUGE imaginations.  I love to watch them play together, as if no one else exists.  Max has speech delays and it is hard to understand a lot of what he says, but Luke always knows what he wants.  Their personalities are very different.  Luke is always on the move, loud, VERY talkative and a drama mama! He is funny and even when he is doing something he shouldn't, he can make you smile!  Max is quiet, FULL of affection, always knows when you need a hug, kiss or an "I love you, monny" (that's what he calls me). 

So our recent birthday extravaganza is over for now.  I like to refer to the past few weeks as "Christmas in spring"! The presents, parties, celebrations and drain of the pocket book, make it feel like the holidays for sure, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  LOVE my boys!

Thanks for stopping by. I may have a card later this evening, but probably not until tomorrow.  It will be nice to get back into my regular creative routine!

They are so adorable--(the boys may not like to be told that they are adorable...) but 5-year old boys are like "babies" to me!! What a milestone!! You did an awesome job as their Mama! Happy Birthday, Max and Luke!
