Happy Birthday my Sweets

We had a fun weekend!!!!!!!!!!! Not only was it Gabriella' Gotch'a Day...but it was also Magnus' 2nd birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lil Magnus turned 2 on Saturday, March 24th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Gabriella for being such a sweetie and sharing you very special day with your little stinker of a brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The weather was BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We couldn't have asked for a nicer spring day!!!!!!!!!!! We celebrated in style outside and BBQ'd and played!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the only picture I have of the four kids looking nice before they destroyed their clothes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahnya wasn't feeling well at all (poor baby) so she striped down to her undies and put her pj's on. And Magnus is always a walking matter what he's all over his shirt!

It wasn't long until he was into the BIG cake!!!!!!!!

This picture cracks me up!!!!!!!!!!!! The only child we've adopted that was raised in an orphanage for the first 1 1/2 years of his life and he is HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There's nothing small about MAgnus! He is a big boy!!!!!!!!!!!

Momma and the babes!!!!!! We had a giant family birthday for Jocelyn, Gabriella and Magnus because their birthday are so close together!!!!!!!!!!!!! So it was easier to do all three together and it worked out great!!!!!!!!!!!!

Magnus and his special baby cake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe he is 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jocelyn designed her tiered baby cake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He, of course, wanted it to look like a wedding cake! Go figure!And Gabriella wanted zebra striped cake! All the cakes totally fit their personalities perfectly!!!! Each of the kids got to eat their own cake!! They think this is so neat!

......................Gabriella and Nana! Gabriella turns 9 in April!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

..........................Jocelyn is 7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Birthday babes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We love you to pieces!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gabriella and Jocelyn got American Girl chairs for their dolls. They love the gift Grandma Ro!!!! They did doll hair all night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had to drag them to bed!
Magnus' favorite gift was the fire engine car. Here he is wearing the hat that goes along with the car! I'll post pics of the fire engine later. Enjoy the weekend!
