The twins turn 11!

We had an early birthday party for the twins as we were heading to the California and Oregon coast during their actual birthday but still wanted to have a celebration with their friends.  We decided to have  people over for breakfast and then took everyone to go see Brave.  (Note Scott in his kilt as we were going to see a movie about Scotland).

A breakfast movie/party is great fun.  I made Oatmeal Bake the night before and then just put it in the oven when I got up.  I cut up fruit the night before and then just made coffee and tea for the adults, had several options of juice for the kids and made yogurt smoothies quickly while the oatmeal was baking.  My friend, E, made Monkey Bread ( which is so good, it is better than a cage) and voila the party was done!  Movies are also MUCH cheaper before noon so we could take the whole group and it was still less expensive than one of our regular parties.

Papa made the party even more fun by getting large first aid patches and writing "eye pad" on it.  Everyone giggled and laughed and then the twins were excited to actually open the packages from Mom and Dad with a nano for Caileigh and a shuffle for Collin as he really wanted a Lego pirate ship!
