Lexi and Lyla Turn(ed) TWO!!!

I’m so embarrassed by how behind I am in blogging.  I mean seriously, what kind of mother doesn’t blog about her darling daughters’ second birthday?  Lexi and Lyla turned 2 on December 3rd, 2010.  We started the day as we normally do with breakfast and some coloring.  The girls decided that they wanted to draw each other birthday cards, and I thought that was a brilliant idea!

After a beautiful exchange of birthday cards, the girls played for a while in their room.  I let them pull all their clothes out of their drawers and make a huge mess, something that we rarely do!  Then Daddy decided that since it was a nice day outside, that we should all go to the park:

We were pretty hungry after a lot of fun playing so we got a Happy Meal on the way home (apparently a birthday tradition).  The little piggies were pretty tired after that so they got a good nap before Bubbie and Zayde and Grandma, Pa, and Honey came over.  We decided to skip a big birthday party this year since the girls have been having some minor freak out sessions around people that aren’t Mama and Daddy.  So we just had a small family gathering which was still tons of fun!  It was also Chanukah so the girls got to light the Menorah with Bubbie and Zayde and open even more presents!  Grandma and Pa got the girls some beautiful birthday cakes also!

Lexi and Lyla got a bunch of great gifts and I think they really enjoyed their day.  I still can’t believe that they are 2 years old!  It’s crazy, but somehow, after 2 years, our love for them grows and grows everyday.
