Tears and Laughter...



Whew-wee. Wow. I really don't know where the time goes. I feel like I am on a constant tread mill but getting no where. I haven't had a moment to report in to what certainly must be my two remaining fans. Funny how that happens when you don't blog. But, for you suckers die hard loyal reader's, heres something to wet your appetite.

My little "huricanes" turned three on Monday! OMG. I can't believe how much they have grown since bringing them home almost two years ago. I can not express the love I feel for my little walking talking mini me's! My little "sas mouth's" as I fondly call them. Nice. I find myself asking "where did they hear that"?! Hmmmm... Where, right?! This by far has been my proudest and most rewarding role. Ev-er! So, it was only fitting that we celebrate "Rony" style to ring in their birthday. A real sha-bang for my little princess's. Of course once we got past the tears they had a great time. Sweet thing handled most of the details. Well, with exception of the invitations. He thought a Chinese themed birthday party would be fun. So did I, especially when I realized he had made arrangements to have it catered from our favorite Chinese Restaurant. Yee-haa. Bonus points for sweet thing. He also ordered the prettiest "Cin-da-bella" cake from Maggie Moo's... not to mention an all too impressive guest list. We knew Nana would be flying in from Florida -- (you would have thought they were graduating from Yale with honors) but Auntie Jill and Auntie Kim surprised us by flying in from Atlanta for the event too. Of course the other famous twins were here and so was baby Evie just days of arriving home from China. She stole the show with her charm. Gorgeous, happy baby. We had so much fun. It just confirmed what wonderful people we have in our lives. And man oh man the presents. The girls made out like bandits. They are still trying to master the trykes. Thank you Nana, Auntie Jill, Auntie Kim and Uncle Andy.








We celebrated "Daddy's Day with a smashingly delicious brunch prepared by his favorite girlfriend. Me. What was even more special Nana would get to spend the day with us before flying home. Sweet thing was smothered in kisses and lots of love and attention from all his girls. After filling our bellies beyond full we decided we needed to enjoy the beautiful day. Plus the little people were way to eager to ride their new trykes and we were a bit anxious ourselves to get them outside. The walls were taking a real beating. But by the sounds of them giggling and squealing they could care less. I finished the evening up with a special dinner for just sweet thing and I. No interuptions. Great weekend.....now onto plans for girls get-away in a couple of weeks. Me and the lil ones are beach bound with my friend Annie and her twins.... oh where will we land??

Sophie's Mom said...

Happy Birthday girls!!! Three is when it starts getting crazy you know... Double crazy for you, mwah ha ha!!!

Chinese catered for their party? Wowza! My idea of 'catering' my kiddos party is picking up a Dairy Queen Ice Cream cake! :)

Glad you're having fun with your gang. Thanks for catching us up!

Oh where will you land? If your not looking for summer to go with your beach, you could go land at Sen's place and make her take you to the lake! That would give you three sets of twins to photograph!!! Don't forget your jackets, Canada is apparently skipping summer this year! And while you are up there, you can tell her I said hi...

Happy Birthday to your girls! I still can't tell them apart...please enlighten me on this non identical thing...throw me a bone, will ya?

Lisa said...

Happy birthday girls!!! Wow, time sure does fly by! Looks like Daddy's Day was fun too!

CQ-VN~mama said...

WOW! Happy Birthday, Cuties! I know you ALL had a wonderful day celebrating. Don't you wish that you could just slow down time, if only for a little while? I know that I do. Cherish these moments, before long they will be fighting over boys and the car keys. LOL

Hugs,
Sue Bachman

WOW ARE THEY 3 ALREADY?? THAT IS JUST CRAZY!!! I CANT BELIVE YOU GOT THEM ALMOST 2 YEARS AGO-- TIME HAS GONE BY SO FAST. THEY HAVE JUST TURNED INTO THE CUTEST LITTLE GIRLS IN THE WORLD WITH BIG MASSIVE PERSONALITIES TO GO ALONG. I LOVE WATCHING THEM GROW AND THANKS FOR LETTING US SHARE THAT WITH YOU.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU GUYS HAD AN AWESOME BDAY FOR THE GIRLS. IT MAKES ME LAUGH HOW MUCH WE ADULTS DO UP OUR KIDS BDAYS. BACK IN THE DAY WHEN WE WERE KIDS IF WE GOT A SONG, A CARD, MAYBE A GIFT AND A CAKE IT WAS CALLED A PARTY. NOW WE THROW THESE CRAZY PARTIES WITH ALL THE POMP AND SPLENDOR (AND A PRICE TAG TO GO ALONG WITH THEM) AND I SOMETIMES WONDER IF MY KIDS WILL EXPECT THAT EACH YEAR. UNFORTUNATLY I HAVE TO DO THE PARTIES 3 TIMES A YEAR AND THEY ALL FALL IN SUMMER AND EARLY FALL SO THAT IS A CRAZY TIME FOR US. I AM TRYING, WITH MY BOYS, TO DO A BIG PARTY EVERY OTHER YEAR AS OPPOSED TO THE YEARLY CRAZE-- OH I COULD GO ON BUT I WONT BORE YOU :)

ANYWAY, GREAT PICS AND GLAD TO HAVE CAUGHT UP WITH THE "GOINGS ON" IN YOUR FAMILY!!

Rony, I am with you as to where the time goes...

Happy Birthday to your beautiful 'Sass Mouths'. I call mine 'Money Suckers'.
They are beautiful like their mother, and your Father's Day looks like it was momentous too. I'm a die hard sucker fan!

Yoli said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Beauty Queens!!!! I hope you had the happiest birthday ever!!! Rony, wishing you much happiness and sunshine.

Qiuqiu's parents said...

Three and growing so fast! Just look at that gorgeous family! The joy in those faces is a testament to a life well-lived. Kudos to all of you.

ps- saw your note on Y's blog, and just want to let you know that I'd love to do a portrait of your girls (who wouldn't??) They're telling us to anticipate travel in July (!!!!) earlier than we expected. So I'm starting a waiting list for after we get settled in with our daughter. I can put you on it if you'd like. You can email me a maialarkin@gmail.com and I'll tell you the specifics. OX
