Grandma's Birthday

This past Saturday, Charlie and Lily threw Grandma a birthday party. Wasn't that thoughtful of them? They are such gracious hosts. Charlie and Lily invited Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle John and Aunt Rebecca over to celebrate, but thankfully Uncle John and Aunt Bec were kind enough to offer to do all of the cooking - the babies aren't allowed to use the stove just yet, even with their extensive Food Network viewing. John made his awesome homemade ravioli, sauce and meatballs for dinner, and Bec made delicious tiramisu for dessert (check out their cooking blog here!). Charlie and Lily helped Grandma blow out her candles and open her gifts after dinner, but the festivities couldn't last long after that since the babies need their beauty sleep. Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Entertaining is hard work! Even the best of hosts needs a nap now and then.
Look how big Charlie is getting!

LOVE these photos - especially the one of Charlie sleeping mid-air. And how thoughtful of them to invite everyone over!

I completely agree with the above comment. Great pictures! name is Abigail Pogrebin; I'm an identical twin and former 60 Minutes producer who just published a book about twins called "One and the Same." I think any parent of twins will find much to chew on and maybe some guidance as to how to dodge pitfalls of doubleness. I'd love to speak to you about the possibility of a book review and/or author Q&A. My email is apogrebin@gmail.com, website:www.abigailpogrebin.com.
