Happy 2nd Birthday Kassidy, Rustin, Kyndall, Kaydence and Ryder!!!

Wow, I can't believe it has already been two years since the babies were born! What a miracle! Everyone is happy, healthy and developing right on schedule. Not a day goes by that I don't think about how blessed I am.
Last year we threw a big party for the first birthday. We had lots of visitors and the event was covered by several news stations. This year we are keeping things pretty low-key (not a single news camera in sight), but it should still be a lot of fun! I am sure I will have lots of pictures to post when it is all done!

In the mean time, in honor of their birthday, I thought I would post some of my favorite pictures of the quints from the past year!

Happy Birthday indeed! I wonder what you will do today to celebrate 5 times 2? Whatever it is I know it will equal a lot of work and a lot of fun. As always loved all the pictures but the book club one really caught my eye.

Happy Birthday to Kassidy, Rustin, Kyndall, Kaydence and Ryder! And happy 2 years of survival to you and Jayson! They have gotten so big since I was out there. I still think about them a lot. Maybe some day when they are older, I can see you all again! Enjoy the 2's x 5!

Happy Birthday! The big TWO!! Wow! Praise God on how well the babies have been doing these past two years and praying they continue to do well. Praise Him from whom all blessings flow!

I will raise my milk glass to the Quints at lunch today.

Love the Book Club shot...Dr. Seuss today, Harry Potter tomorrow.

The Quints share Harry's birthday: proof positive that they were born on a magical, auspicious day!

Happy Birthday kids!

A miracle indeed. Happy birthday to the little ones. It really is hard to believe.

Yes let's get together...I'm planning on it. Just let me know what works best for you.

Are you driving? Either which way I wish you the best in your travels.

Kristen Joy said...

I LOVE them all! Especially the kids looking out the window watching for the bus.

My Boaz's Ruth said...

Yay! You're back up! Happy 2nd birthday boys and girls!

They have grown up SO much in the past year. said...

Just one question? How do you do it? You are so amazing! My name is Sarah Thorstrom. I had triplet girls in December of 2008, two of them are identical, and it's a struggle! Worth every moment though. I couldn't imagine adding two more to the baby mold right now. So congratulations to you on surviving the first two years.
