It was awesome, folks--large amounts of fun. And with Joel being early to arrive (and thus put to work) and everybody else being late we actually pulled it off. Thanks to all the grandmas, aunts and uncles who juggled the twins while I ran the show.
We began with dinner: (Sweet pork, lime rice, and pinto beans with an array of salsas,
dressings, and Mexican toppings for making your own quesadillas, burritos, or chimichangas):
Then we moved onto the pinata (Mags got first hit then we moved up in age from there. Maggie hit herself in the head with the stick. Jamison hit it, but then hid from embarrassment when we cheered. Dan hit Lincoln with the pinata. Dan broke the stick. And then it was over. Too much candy right before bedtime):
We stopped for presents (Tutus, puzzles, darling clothes, a purse, books, lip gloss, a puppy [not real thankfully], money, and treats were given. So generous!):
Should you make choice, as I did, to ask your brothers to take pictures of your child opening presents you'll end up with this:
and some of this:
And we ended with chocolate flan and raspberry filled cupcakes:
Fue muy bien! Life is great when you're 2.
