Wow, I don't know how I got weeks behind in posting the birthday pictures, but finally here they are... and not a minute too soon, because as I type Scott is working his way home via airplane and rental car for his last few days with the girls and I before heading to Iraq. Needless to say, I will be posting very little once he gets home. I did, however, just spend the last 30 minutes uploading photos and preparing to get all caught up on the blog so that if I have spare time I can do some blogging without the hassle of uploading pictures. For tonight I'll just work until he gets home. And now, without further ado...

Ms. Nancy is working really hard to perfect her mother's icing recipe for the cakes, which she has graciously offered to bake for 2 years in a row now. She suspects that by the time the girls are 18 she'll have that icing down pat, but the girls already thought it was perfect! (As did I, thanks Nancy!!)
Here are a couple of photos of my sweet babies, well, they used to be babies... I can not believe there are already two candles on top of those little cakes!! Kate, Maggie, and Sarah

We were incredibly blessed to have so many friends and family members there to celebrate with us. I took some pictures of the crowd, but they didn't turn out well. Perhaps I'll learn how to take photos of large groups of people one of these days...
Thanks to everyone who helped us make it such a special day for the girls! I still can't believe my babies are TWO?!?
