:: Skadoosh ::

The twin’s birthday was so much fun this year. As always the kids got a home made gift from me, and this year they both got dress-up clothes. Jane is really into the princess thing, (I really don't know how this happened, but I am learning to embrace my inner princess too) so I made her some little skirts and veils.

I made Josh a tool belt and a shop apron, I didn’t have time to make him any super hero clothes, but I want to make them both super suits, (maybe for Halloween). Josh also got some tools and a cute construction hat. We wanted Jane to know she had options so we got her a Dr. kit too.

The day started with a trip to the park then we went to the Pizza Factory for lunch and then caught a matinee of Kung Fu Panda. I love Jack Black (who doesn’t, I mean really is there anyone out there who doesn’t like him?) and the movie did not let me down.

My parents come over for Dinner (Cafe Rio, cause the kids love it) and then watched the kids for an hour so we could sneak out to a friends wedding reception. The reception was beautiful (the bride, the flowers, the cake, the garden, everything was amazing) and it was nice to have a mini date with Kgordee. We ended the night with the kids and a lot of bed time stories and songs.

Happy Birthday Jane and Josh

Love the B-Day gifts!!!
I think Jane is your twin not Josh's.

She looks SOO much like you. I love it! It is little Camille!

I love the outfits and accessories. They're so great. Good on ya. What are the pink shoes Jane is wearing in the first pic? So cute! Crocs? Mary Janes?

PS, I think the princess thing is inevitable, for boys as well as girls. The clothes are just too fun to pass up. We try to give grace options too (tools, dr stuff, bugs) and she still went through a long princess phase.

Best birthday EVER! What a wonderful mom you are to make such thoughtful and useful gifts! Good food, good times and I too love Jack Black.

Camille, you are SO NOT an awkward phone talker. Come on! BTW, I don't even know what Josh looks like with pants on anymore. See you sun.
