tenth birthday party time!

A few weeks ago, we celebrated the twins 10th birthday with a lot of their friends.  They invited some friends from our old neighborhood, and lots of friends from their new school.  I toyed with the idea of having their party somewhere other than our house, because a) 10 year old boys are wild and crazier, and bigger than 8 year old boys. b) our new house is so pretty! But, in the end, we opted to have it at home, just like always.  The jury is still out on whether or not that was the right decision.
We played a bunch of "Minute To Win It" style party games.  All of the games were really fun, and the few boys that participated in each challenge really got into them.  We did learn, however, that having fun watching others, when it isn't your turn, is an adult skill.  Not a ten year old boy skill.  Oh well!

What party would be complete without a ridiculous amount of yummy food?

This is the only picture I got of the birthday boys together.  
This present was a big hit with everyone, and it was also the only time that everyone at the party was focused on the same thing at the same time.  Sheesh!
10!  The boys wanted birthday donuts instead of cake, so 10s out of donuts it was!

Kade's turn to blow out the candles.  He took the task of thinking of a birthday wish very seriously this year.

Ky's turn to blow out the candles.  Sorry, it's a twin thing!
Happy Birthday (again) Ky and Kade!  The best thing about having your birthday party three months late, is now you only have to wait nine more months to celebrate again!
