Kai & Julia Turn Two!!

As of May 18th, we have two two year-olds and one two month-old living in our house!  We celebrated Kai and Julia's second birthday with Elmo balloons, a few gifts from mom and dad, dinner and games at Chuck E Cheese, and Elmo cupcakes!  The kids loved waking up to find their balloons and cupcakes for breakfast!  Although, they had a sneak peak at the cupcakes the night before.  Jared was "in charge" of the kids while I was out running some errands.  He saw the twins in the hallway passing something back and forth and laughing quietly.  Once they noticed him looking their way, Julia and Kai made eye contact, Julia pointed in the opposite direction, and the two went running down the hallway.  Once Jared got near he saw crumbs and cupcake wrappers.  There also was a whole row of cupcakes that were missing from the cooling racks.  Those two ate four cupcakes in a manner of minutes!  

We had their birthday party over Memorial Day weekend since my parents and brother, Zach, were coming to town.  A lot of the kids friends were out of town or busy, but we enjoyed seeing my mom's cousin and husband (Chuck & Susan Traxler) who live in Grapevine, TX, and our neighbors.  We rented a bounce house and enjoyed more Elmo treats!
Happy Birthday!

Julia can now sing/hum Happy Birthday!


We had a great time with my family in town.  The kids really enjoyed playing at the neighborhood pool.  My brother experiemented with his new camera and took some shots of baby Isaac and the twins.  I think they turned out cute!  (Although he is working on editing them still).

BTW... what a strong boy!

Yes, that is a wallet that she snuck!

Backing up... we enjoyed a quick trip to Tulsa the week before.  It was great to see some of our friends and catch up from the past six months!

Wow, that was a lot of pictures in one blog!  It's my attempt to document these years, so I like to post pictures so that they don't just take up space on our computer :)  We are now slowing down after all of the birthday celebrations and trips.  Now it's my turn to contemplate the past few years and thank the Lord for blessing us in so many ways.  These years go by so fast.  I'm sure I'll be in tears this week as I write letters to the kids (to put in their baby book) and update their albums.  All for now!
