Yesterday we celebrated 2 birthdays and our adoption... though we didn't really do anything special for the adoption... we just threw it in there :) With the 6 of us, grandparents, and a few very close friends of ours it quickly became a BIG gathering... we had about 20 people here to celebrate with us :) The pic's below are just the cake and gifts times of the party- for some reason we didn't get the camera out much. Mike might have more (and BETTER ) pic's on his camera too tho. Two of K's friends were able to come (sister and brother) and the girl is also buddies with my girls :) They are both sweethearts and the kids play well together. Tomorrow's the big day for Kristopher (his actual birthday) so hopefully lots of pictures of our fun birthday surprise soon!
Emma did pretty well through the party. Especially at the beginning she was a bit overwhelmed by all the people, but once she had food she was pretty happy- then after the food she wasn't sure it was so good until there were presents :) She sure did figure out how to open the presents and play with the paper though! It's always a hard balance when we are so blessed to have many that want to take part in these celebrations and yet, especially with Emma, we also know that she enjoys smaller groups by far... today I think we had a very nice mix of it, though, and we all enjoyed it!
Kristopher is FIVE!
And Emma is SIX!
And all the kids had fun :)
