Evelyn & Sylvia's 3rd Birthday!!!!!!!!!

What an awesome 3rd birthday for Evelyn and Sylvia (ignore that last funny face picture on Evelyn).  The morning started out with chocolate chip pancakes with strawberries and bacon.  Then, during breakfast someone was at the door ringing the bell, over and over.  Who could it be?  Well, Grandpa rode his motorcycle from Indiana (11 hours) to surprise the girls on their big day!  How special.  He even brought doughnuts!  After the excitement and breakfast, the girls opened presents from us, Grammommy & Gramps, Great Granny, Grandpa, Grandpappa and Grandma, Oma and Opa.  Boy, that was crazy!

Then the girls went to swimming class with Grammommy and Gramps, returned for a yummy lunch, and down for naps.  Well, Sylvia didn't nap...she watched Daddy put up the bounce house outside her window.  I heard her screaming "Daddy, I want to bounce."  Ha!  They woke up and got to bouncing.  Every single person we invited came (that's 62 guests if you're keeping track!!!!); everyone arrived at 4:30pm for pony rides, petting zoo, bouncing, playing, dinner and cake.  The last guest left at 7:15pm and we had everything cleaned up by 8pm and then opened more presents!  Boy, folks went overboard!  We have so many princess dresses, shoes, accessories, books, cars, etc.  Soooooo fun!

We are incredibly lucky to have such wonderful family and friends who love and adore our girls as much as we do.  Thank you for all of our love and support.  The last 3 years have been a crazy ride of ups and downs and we are thrilled to start this next year off with a huge bang!

We love you little ladies.  Thank you for being YOU!
