First Birthday Partaay!

Our children are growing up way to quickly and I don't think we are ready for them to be 1. Last year they were all in the NICU and I was a very terrified Mommy and today they are all screaming (talking) to me and the girls are wanting to take a step or two in between toys when we are not looking. Logan continues to amaze us in all he has accomplished the last few months, he is wanting to sit with his sisters and fights to every day.

We had a party the weekend after their birthday (yes this post is a little late), mainly adults as we are still in lockdown and paranoid of any germs. I had a jungle theme and then decided it was much easier to be a little more relaxed and leave it at the cake and invitation. The kids were afraid of any balloons even if they were in another room...those things can be terrifying! Our children have many nicknames but they all have an animal nickname as well. Elizabeth is our bear, Madison is our monkey, and Logan is our lion...and these names are so true to them.

Oh, and the kids are afraid of people in general that are not around that often so once they were comfortable with someone they were there a while. Side note since most of our family is far far away stuck in snow drifts in the great state of Michigan we call most of our friends here in Texas Aunts and Uncles. Also a quick thank you to those friends who were sick and did not come, we appreciate you thinking of our kiddos more than you know.

Our awesome invitations from Amy's Card Creations of course with info removed, loved them and she really puts her heart into her work.


The cake...I love it. Instead of smash cakes we did cupcakes with each animal on them

I was terrified if I turned around Elizabeth would attack

Mommy what is this...hmm can we eat the light??

Yes Mommy shoved the cupcake in our faces and yes we kind of liked it...yum yum


Poor Logan, we was not fond of Daddy putting icing on his lips...no sweet tooth here.


Hmmm...I think I like this, we will see...


Lets just play do I have to eat it???


Mommy I am over this I want my bottle!!!

Look at all those people waiting to love on our kiddos!



This is what Madison does when she is not sure of people or what is going on. She is too cute and will just sit in the middle of the floor until she is ready closely watching everything.

The kids love to be upside down...our Lizy Bear. Our wonderful neighbor Tori with Logan, she is such a great cook and kept us fed the first few months at home.


Miss Kaity with Lizy

Mama, what are these people doing here?

Uncle Sandeep and Auntie Nam with the cutest kids ever

Mama with her bear, I think we were both pretty tired

No Mama I am not trying to find your secret candy stash.

Madi Belle with Grandpa Tomlinson (my Dad)


The kids received these chairs from Grammie and Grandpa Tomlinson and they look so grown up in them.




Look at those curls



I was a bad Mommy and did not take pictures with any other gifts or cards...so sorry. Thank you all so much for thinking of our babies on their first birthday!

Much love to you all!
