Reality sets in...

Tiny baby girls do become little girls...

My tiny 5lb twin baby princesses just celebrated their first 1st birthday party. Their actual birthday is on Tuesday but we celebrated at church with some friends and family this afternoon. I am so thankful to have such great friends and family that helped me pull things together :) It was pretty and dainty and everyone had a great time!

My friend Kelly (a woman w/ a servant's heart who graciously gives her time, creativity and efforts) and I made a cake from scratch: Red {Wine} Velvet Cake w/ German cream cheese buttercream frosting... one word... YUM! (This recipe was written by someone my husband knew growing... she is a very talented pastry chef and witty writer- check out Stella at her blog, The Brave Tart) I'm not the most experienced baker but I do enjoy it and this turned out fabulous!

My sister also receives BIG props for her sewing skills... she made some adorable dresses inspired by this dress. I will share more when I have photos but I definitely wanted to say, "thank you" :)

We were going for 'sugar & spice'... it turned out very sweet and tea party-ish and was a lot of fun :) While it still is hard to believe that its already been a year since they joined our family, we certainly cannot imagine life with out them :) They are a joy and make our lives so much fuller.
