Lynanne also made our wedding cake almost 8 years ago. In the above picture you can see our cake topper in the cabinet.
Sunday was a beautiful, warm, sunny day. The kids spent Saturday at my parents' house so Chris and I could get ready for the party. Sunday we had plenty of time to finish preparing. Chris went out to get some necessities while I took the kids to Gloucester to pick up the cakes. Madison fell asleep on the way up there. By the time we got home it was time to put them down for naps. Jackson went right to sleep but Maddie screamed her head off. Once he was asleep we went in and got her up.
Jackson got up right as people were starting to arrive. Last year we focused on inviting as many friends as we could. This year we focused on as much family as we could. I figure as they get older they're only going to want their friends at their parties.

Fist bump for great grandma
The day of the party was also Auntie's birthday so we had a cake for her too.
After mostly everyone left, Grandma and Nana helped us open presents. Auntie Courtney got them these adorable Mickey bathrobes with their names stitched on them.
These spinny light toys are by far their favorites.
They got the Hess truck from Chris's aunt Judy and it's another of their favorites.
