Happy birthday to my boys!

on March 22, 2013

I can’t believe they are TWO! What a difference a year makes. Year one was long, year two flew. With twins, once you hit the one year mark, the hard work of having two definitely starts paying off. They are on a 24/7 play date.

Last weekend, we had the boys’ second birthday party at a little kid’s gym called My Gym, they were great! I made Mickey Mouse cupcakes, which were almost a Pinterest fail. I found cute Mickey & Minnie cupcake holders on Etsy (ASweetMelissaDesign). I ended up using mini Oreos as the ears- Pinterest had you using a cookie cutter to cut out smaller circles from the bigger Oreos, this was way too much work for me. I had to use toothpicks to get the ears to stay on- don’t forget to tell the kids to remove the toothpicks (oops)! The favors were Mickey Mouse crayon holders found on Etsy of course (holders from Janie at kidsstore, printable labels from LisaKaydesigns).

 And the best present of the day, the boys learned they will be big brothers to a little sister in July!

For the balloon box, I wrapped everything including the top of the box at home, and left the bottom open. I gave the sealed envelope that contained the gender of the baby from the doctor’s visit to a party store. The nice girls there stuffed the box with the balloons, and sealed up the bottom. They promised not to tell my sister, who was picking up the box.

I am just a little excited.
