HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TWINS!
Ohhhh yes...double trouble here just turned 3!
To celebrate, I think we had the most awesome birthday party at Casa de Amor ever! At the baby home, we have a set of triplets living with us. There is a family in Cochabamba who has become the godfamily of the three, donating so many supplies to the baby home, securing a place for them to live with their mother later on next year, and donating scholarship money for their future education. It is really mindblowing how generous this family has been, but their generosity doesn't end with the triplets. The family owns a BEAUTIFUL resort outside of the city, and they invited us to celebrate the twins' birthday party there. We're talking incredible pool, (with a slide...schhhwiiiiing!), soccer fields, and more food than we could have imagined. All of our kids from both House 1 and House 2 plus just about all of our staff joined the party, and we definitely might have had more fun than the kids.
The party scene.
The older kids at House 2 all have swimsuits. All the babies at House 1 have....underwear.
Imagine trying to get the kids OUT of the pool after this!
Bolivia's big birthday tradition..."biting the cake" - aka getting your face smashed into your cake by somebody else. He didn't seem to mind, believe it or not.
She, on the other hand, wasn't sold.
...and thanks to some red-letter icing on the cake....a birthday masacre?
This gal was a pretty big fan of the desserts today, too. In fact, if anyone has a picture of this baby NOT stuffing her face or double-fisting doughnuts, let me know.
I stayed clear of the pinatas, because what was inside? Maybe my least favorite substance in the entire world...glitter.
...lots of glitter.
My baby..."Merry Christmas" :)
Soaking up every minute!
And just for kicks, remember those smiling pictures right at the beginning of this post? Let's just say we made great strides since the twin's 2-year-old birthday celebration last year.
HA - pumpinnnnnnn!
Well...the terrible two's are behind us. Three has to be better for these two, right?????
