. . . I have been wildly successful!!!
I was planning on giving a current photo update of the girls, but our cord to download pictures from the camera to computer is missing. I have a sneaking suspicion that one of the girls found it and has hidden it in some secret location. Sierra's favorite hiding spot is the heater vent in the dining room; daily I have to check it for spoons and other items small enough to fit through the slits.
Well the girls are 15 months old now. I can't believe it! For their birthday we had a waffle and scrambled eggs party. Here they are eating their birthday cake. I made pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting. It was interesting to see their personalities come into play with how to eat cake. Sierra grabbed the whole piece and immediately started to demolish it, after it was beyond recognition she then decided to eat. Ashley on the other hand gingerly swiped frosting off with one finger. I had to break it into chunks and then she ate it.
