Birthday Recap

Monday, March 30, 2009

The big birthday weekend is over, everybody had fun, and Andy and I are still adjusting to the fact that we have two TWO-YEAR-OLDS in the house. Here’s a recap, in list-and-photo format.

Birthday celebrators
Grandpa Bob
Grandma Lorraine
Grandpa Larry
Grandma Sallie
Aunt Julie
the loving friends and family who sent their well-wishes by phone, mail, email, and Facebook (over 30 of you—Henry and Eleanor are definitely loved!)

Awesome new presents
basketball hoop
soccer goal
toy blender
Matchbox car garage
cute new clothes
money that will become a zoo membership
new cozy coupe cars
wheelbarrow filled with outdoor toys like bubbles and chalk

Things that threatened to put a damper on the celebration, but thankfully didn’t
Henry’s low-grade fever
Eleanor’s low-grade fever
Aunt Julie’s possible food poisoning
absence of sufficient Saturday nap
winter temperatures and snow on Sunday
scheduling of Michigan State game right in middle of birthday (Go Spartans!)

Things that elicited squeals from the birthday boy and birthday girl
playing catch with Grandma Lorraine
a surprise morning appearance by Grandpa Larry
playing with balloons with the grandmas
making a basket in the new hoop
the button on the new blender
driving the new cars
Elmo on the cake
putting all the new barrettes in our hair
