The Birthday Party

We had Olivia and Eugene's birthday party on April 8th at our house. It went really well other than the weather wasn't as nice as we had hoped. We had about 28 adults and 16 kids so it was a fairly packed house. The twins did great and didn't seem overwhelmed at all by the number of people there.

It was a busy day and of course I didn't feel like I had much of an opportunity to visit with everyone - but isn't that what always happens when you're the host? They both seemed to love their birthday cake and I got some good shots of them both with icing all over their faces (see below). Olivia actually ended up getting it in her ears!

On a side note and I guess good timing on this one, I ended up getting the stomach flu as the last of our guests were leaving. Unfortunately for some of our guests (ten of our guests to be exact), they would be getting the same virus over the next few days. I'm sure they didn't expect to be getting the stomach flu as their party favor! :)

Now on to the pictures...

And last but not least... the Birthday Girl

And the Birthday Boy

I thought I'd end with a video clip of just how much Eugene loved his first Birthday cake! (just click the play button)

Oh boy, the video of Eugene's "num num" sounds is beyond precious. Too cute! A very very happy belated birthday to Eugene and Olivia from Phoebe and Archer.

Thanks, Dana! I had to get his "num nums" on film before he stops doing them! He does them with everything he eats - from cheddar fish to oatmeal. I had been meaning to get a video of it and it just so happened that a first b-day party was the perfect opportunity! Still having a hard time believing that they're a year old!
