thanks to everyone for making the boys’ first birthday party so memorable! we loved every minute. xoxox.

i didn’t really get any good crowd shots, pictures of tripper or me or many of the grandparents. if you were there and you got some, would you please email me?? thanks!!

i can’t believe how generous our friends and family are. we have lot of thank yous to write!! i hope this list is complete—we did our gift opening in a rather non-traditional way. every guest grabbed a gift and opened it for the boys. it saved time and was lots of fun to have the big reveal all at once. the list below is really for my memory (thanks for writing it down, susan!), but enjoy it—it’s a good one!
