Happy Birthday, Moriah & Lily!

The girls had such a great time at their joint birthday party. Teddy Bears was the theme. The crowning achievement was originally supposed to be the pull-apart cupcake cake, but it turned out to be the Chicken Cheese Ball pictured above (or Chicken Cheese Bear :-). Click here for the recipe.

Although I must be honest, I'm not sure who enjoyed themselves more, the girls, or me. :-D I really enjoyed having everyone come out to our house, eat our food, play in our yard, and enjoy themselves.

Lily ended up sleeping most of the party until the time for the candle and singing. Once she woke up, all she wanted was some real food. :-) Moriah had such a good time opening gifts, eating sweets and playing with all her friends from church and her cousins. These past two days I have not had to tell her to go play with her toys. :-) She's been mesmerized by the wonderful blinking and singing gifts people were so generous to give. She's also been given a lot of books (one of her favorite things) and asked me to read them. They received the series of books, "If you give a Mouse a cookie," "If you give a Pig a Pancake," and "If you give a Moose a muffin," etc. Those are a lot of fun.

We had about 55 total in attendance! The weather was unusually great and many of the kids went outside to play and climb the trees. Thank you to all our guests who honored us with your presence and our girls with wonderful gifts. There was nothing they received that will not be put to excellent, immediate use. :-) Enjoy the slideshow.
