This is a long overdue post since Dane and Maci turned 1 almost 2 months ago! Mimi and Maggie flew in for there birthday party and to help me get set up in our new townhouse we're renting:) We had so much fun and got so much accomplished! First of all our front room was a hideous 2-toned diarrhea color, so that had to go. I've been obsessed with gray so we went to Lowes and picked out a lovely perfect gray:) Mimi basically painted our whole front room in a day, while Mag's and I worked on painting my dining room table and chairs. We also painted our front door b/c it was so dingy! On Maci and Danes birthday morning I made them some delicious personalized blueberry pancakes:) Maci was thrilled and Dane wasn't so sure about the bursting blueberries, lol. We also got Maci a princess balloon and Dane an Elmo balloon which lasted weeks and they loved them:) On the day of there party it was a mad house to get everything ready, we went all out! We did a cowboy/cowgirl theme and everything turned out adorable, amazingly! I made pulled pork sandwiches and potato salad which turned out so good:) We just had a family party since they really are too young to have friends. It was so much fun! I found out that night that Dane is allergic to eggs:( I was feeding both Maci and Dane just some baby food and decided to give them some potato salad which had eggs. Dane instantly projectile vomited all over his brand new outfit, and didn't feel good the rest of the night:( He did still have fun opening and playing with all his new toys! Maci loved everything except when the candle was blown out on her cupcake, she was so upset:( We all had such a blast and were so exhausted by the end! It was all so worth to celebrate our 2 little miracles! I love them so much and look forward to watching them grow and learn new things:) They are such a joy make me laugh everyday!
