a rocket and a rainbow birthday


We partied ya'all.  
Celebrated four years of twindom!  
And now I know why cakes are so expensive.  It took me almost two days to make these!  But I really wanted something special for each twin and I let them choose what cake they wanted me to make.  Boston's heart was set on a rocket ship and Astair saw a rainbow cake on pinterest and fell in love.  At first I was worried that I wouldn't be able to pull it off, but I'm really happy and more than a little surprised at how they turned out.  And they even tasted good, too!  If you know me, this is a major accomplishment.  I have a Betty Crocker complex and the kitchen is intimidating territory, but no more!  Step aside, Ms. Crocker, I've got two successful cakes under my belt.

We had loads of fun and I just loved how Boston and Astair's faces lit up when we sang them happy birthday and they got to be the center of attention.  Being the middle children and twins to boot,  it doesn't happen as often as it should.  It was pretty wonderful.  Boston was glowing and Astair was shyly soaking it up.  I love these kids.

I took tons of pictures and here are just a few:
















The end of a very happy birthday.
