the "bird" day cakes
Although I did decorate them, I cannot take full credit for these cakes. My talented and beautiful mother-in-law baked them. Which is why they tasted even better than they looked! (And I was sick all night because I ate half the frosting I decorated them with!) The twin's did not technically have a birthday this year. They were born on Leap Day! But we celebrated one anyway. : ) It was all for the birds. I hid easter eggs in the backyard and the kids had a blast hunting for the "mamma bird's lost eggs". We had face painting for the older kids while the twins had a blast "cake painting"! The pictures tell all.

It lasted all of two minutes!
My babies are one! Is that a gray hair?!
"Oh yeah, baby"
"Umm, this is so messy. Look, my fingers are dirty."
"Hmm...what does yours taste like?"
an ending and a beginning...
