My Babies Are One Year Old!

April 18, 2011 our world changed forever, and even though the last year has had its share of hard and frustrating times, I think both Richard and I would agree wholeheartedly it has been the best year of our lives. 

I started planning the babies' birthday a few months ago, and although it was a very stressful time for me (why we do that to ourselves as parents, especially mothers, I'll never know...the babies couldn't have cared less, it was all for me!), in the end it all came together and it was a great day celebrating our two little miracles. 

The babies' birthday party was on Sunday the 15th.  I chose a western theme mainly because we had so much to use for decor already and because it's fairly easy to pull off a boy/girl party. 

And on to what you really are here for...PICTURES!!! 

Cake and presents table in the dining room
 Reese Kathleen in her tutu!
 Party invitation
 Birthday cake that matched the invite...Richard's mom made the cake, cupcakes, and smash cakes.
 Smash cakes for the babies.
 Truett...wish I had a better picture of the little dude in his onesie. :(

 I bought these Wanted posters and just cut the middle out              
to use for pictures and to capture all of our party guests.
Everyone had a sticky mustache to don, too.
                                                                                                                One happy Momma!

I love my family!  
 Beautiful birthday girl.  That necklace was mine when I was a little girl. 
 Sweetest boy I know.  Loving him some birthday cake.
 Reese and Truett with their grandparents (Papa and Nonni, Richard's parents, and Sita and Papi, my parents)
 "Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday, dear Truett and Reese...happy birthday, to you!"  (we actually sang to each of them individually).  Love Reese's reaction!  Ha!
 He was a little apprehensive at first, but once I broke it open he went to town.
 Mmm, Momma, this is good stuff. 

 I'd say he liked it!

 Opening presents...of course, we got some awesome Aggie clothes!  WHOOP!
 Reesie got her first baby doll and she's giving it kisses. 
 Tru and his new trucks.
