Briony and Milo turn 1!

These two turned one and I can't believe how fast the year has gone by. I say this all the time but this has been the fastest year of my life. We {I} decided to go all out for this party and invite our close friends and family to come and celebrate with us.
 I planned for weeks in advance and hired my SIL, Taleesha to make their cakes which she executed perfectly. I spent quite a bit of time making their cotton candy piñata and getting all the decorations and food just as I wanted it.
I was a little sad to see those piñatas get smashed after I put so much of my heart and time into them, but I know that the kids loved it and that's worth it right there.

The kids patiently waiting to hear the rules and for their turn to break the piñata.

 And then came the cake. The babes were not feeling very well and they were totally off their schedule so when it was time to smash into their cake, they weren't too into it. Briony would take little finger licks of her cake and with some help, Milo took a few bites out of his. They mostly wanted to play with their little name banners.

Later that night we went home and opened their gifts together. Everyone was so generous and thoughtful. Briony and Milo {and Oliver} loved opening the gifts. Milo especially loved eating the wrapping.
I am so incredibly thankful for all those that have been there for us with Briony and Milo. It has been quite the journey to get them here and I know that I wouldn't have been able to do it without the kindness of the loved ones in my life. Cheers to Briony and Milo for turning one and bringing so much joy into this world.
