Anne was very excited to open a toy diaper bag full of goodies for her babies. As soon as she opened it, she said, "Catherine, we can share this!"
She immediately went into action and put a very large diaper on Pink Baby:
We went to Sunday morning Mass and ate donuts afterwards. When we got back home, the kids all got to watch a movie ("Popeye," chosen by Anne and Dominic, or as they call it, "Pie-Pie"), while I got lunch ready. Then, after lunch, we finally got to eat some birthday cake! Anne had a princess cake and Dominic had a robot cake. So the girls ate Anne's cake and the boys ate Dominic's cake.
Then it was time for more presents:
One more shot of Dom:
This was followed by naps, much playing with new toys, a visit from cousins with a cook-out/corn-on-the-cob party, and of course more birthday cake.
Then, at bedtime, Anne said, "Mommy, will it still be my birthday when I wake up?" I told her no, and disappointed, she said, "My birthday was too short!" Oh, but there will be lots of playing with new toys all week.
Hmm, I think I'm feeling a toy purge coming on. Shh! Don't tell the kids.
