Welcome home, Isaac, and happy birthday to Daddy!

I was so glad to have Isaac home again after two weeks in Oregon, I burst into happy tears when I saw him coming down the hall in the airport. The babies were all in the car and absolutely lit up with smiles of glee when they saw their big brother. He had them all laughing immediately, even squealing. They very clearly remembered him, and they were happier to see him than they had been to see Gavin and me when we were reunited after our CA trip! We can tell who is the favorite family member. :)

Isaac at his day camp. This was one of his favorite activities: the rope swing and trampoline raft.
Isaac returned Saturday, and it's Gavin's birthday today! What a big year it's been for him, and I'm so proud of the father, husband, friend, worker and man that he is.

These pictures below are actually from another birthday party on Saturday, but we'll pretend it was to celebrate Gavin. We had a pizza and pie party tonight for Gavin once all the babies were in bed. They weren't in a celebratory mood. :} We could hardly get them into bed fast enough, poor tired tots. 

Back to the photos below: Gracie is in green and Marcie is in purple. I had to use my phone to take the pictures, so they're not the best. Sorry! The boys were also there, but I didn't even get photos of them. It was a little hectic. Two sets of toddler twins and other young kids added to the fun. 

The babies were absolutely fascinated with the balloons.
Gracie's eyes match her dress.

Sam pointed out that it looks like the weight of the flowers on their headbands are pulling their little heads down.
They're mirror images almost!

Marcie is a MESS after supper! Time for a bath.
