Well, OK, 12-year-old birthday party, Take 2: Boys! didn’t exactly happen. None of the boys were in town and/or available tonight. We’ll try again for Thursday or next week. Funny how things are so different for each twin. I feel terrible for my step-son, he’s pretty bummed out.

But he got to spend some quality time with his Dad this afternoon and we all had a nice evening together. (Bike ride. Looking at the moon and emerging stars. Star Trek Online. Laughing at Beezebarb’s yearbook from high school. Waffles!—the boy wanted waffles instead of cupcakes.) Tomorrow is their actual birthday and we’re going to have a mostly family day {plus the VegNet potluck: our annual Luau.} I know it doesn’t make up for having friends over, but…

12-year-old birthday party, Take 1: Girls!


12-year-old birthday party, Take 1: Girls!

Whose idea was this, anyway?

There are 5 extra girls here camped out in the living room, which looks like a tornado went through it. So far: Water balloon fights, bike rides, make-your-own pizzas, girls being bossy, vegan teal velvet cupcakes {instead of red, and thanks to older sister}, movies, popcorn, dogs eating popcorn, and silly phone videos.

Tomorrow, Take 2: Boys!
