We ended up with a small gathering at our house with Tony's family. I was disappointed that none of my family was able to attend. My sister and her husband had already purchased tickets for a Holiday Express train ride for their family, so they couldn't come. Don't even ask me about my mom. She was going to come, but then she wasn't, but then she changed her mind and was going to come, and then the day of, she called to say she wasn't coming after all. I knew she
It seemed kind of funny to me that we were having a 2 year old birthday party, and Ayden and Rylee were the only kids here! To be fair, part of that reason is that we didn't invite any of their little friends, so it only would have been cousins (which they have a lot of!) Instead, we invited both sets of their twin friends to join us on their actual birthday this Wednesday, to join us at the trampoline park, Get Air, for lots of jumping fun! We are looking forward to that!
Despite not having a large turnout to their party, Ayden and Rylee had a fantastic time and truly, that is all that matters! Rylee entertained everyone by giving high fives and asking "are you kay?" every time someone coughed. Cutest thing ever! Ayden entertained everyone with his constant activity and getting into everything.
|Ayden dumped the presents out and then climbed in and out of this tote a dozen times. He thought it was the best thing ever!|

I got a very simple cake from Costco and just had them write Happy Birthday with no decorations, so that I could add the two Elmo birthday candles. They were much cleaner cake eaters this year than last year! haha Ayden took a bite of the cake and decided he wasn't much of a cake eater, so he just played with his piece instead. Rylee actually liked the cake and took several bites, but has a lot more self control than her momma and left a lot behind. The problem with having a Costco cake and a small turnout for the party? Lots of cake left over. I have eaten way too much cake....

Only three more days and we will have TWO year olds!!!! Eeeek!
