Ellen and Alanna's birthdays were within 5 days of each other a couple weeks ago and as always we enjoyed getting to celebrate them.
They had lots of fun having some family over to celebrate their birthdays. It was a special treat to get to have Matt too! :) We enjoyed eating Chicken Strips, Mac n' Cheese, and baked beans for dinner because that is what Ellen had picked and Alanna likes it too. For dessert it was super moist, mouth-watering, and absolutely delicious chocolate cake that Mom and Anna decorated. Yeah, I'm sure that by now some of you are wanting some! Lots of Talking (lots of laughing too!), playing hot potato, watching the girls open their presents, and eating is what we spent our time doing!
On Saturday we went to Easy Street and had a great time there too! One of the ladies that works there just loved the little kids and let Andrew and Alanna play mini-golf for FREE! Then Dad, Anna, Ivan and I drove go karts, Ellen and Andrew rode, and Mom and Alanna and Will watched. Actually, Will was probably snoozing at the time!...:) Before we left the same lady gave balloons and "trinket bags" to the two birthday girls.
Hope you enjoy the pictures!
