simple celebration

in an effort to simply this year, we had one party between Mayan and Isadore's birthday's......handful of friends, ice cream sundaes, party hats, confetti, balloons, and sack races. it was perfection.

neck and neck sack race

kylin has her mama's smile!

i *heart* this shot so much (thanks for taking it Cath!)

blake explaining the egg-in-spoon race to an attentive yet eager audience

and the added bonus, most of the gifts people brought were handmade! amanda made the girls a bitchin' puppet theatre with sock puppets that hangs in the doorway, breana made adorable tutus, and danielle made all of us (blake and i included!) fabric bags that are made just like plastic sacks from the grocery store. we sure know some crafty people!

Love the pics. Rick showing off his juggling skills. The girls thinking of their egg race strategies. Especially the one of Isadore with chocolate all over her face. Where's the one of us rubbing uteruses? :)

Looks like a blast! I showed B pictures and she pointed at the one of Isadore and said loudly, "DAT!" Apparently she had fun playing the other day. :-D
