Cake, Presents...Round 2!

Where did I leave off?...Oh, okay...after the billboards, we went to eat at one of our favorite places: Joe T Garcia's in Fort Worth.

SO happy that Uncle Ed and Jess drove up from Aggieland to hang out with us for the weekend. I mean, what college kid wants to spend a weekend- getting crazy with a bunch of 2 year olds?! Love them SO much.
Jess, Drew, Ed

Grammy and Sav

Mama and Benny Boy

Uncle Ed and Ethan

Jess and Drew

Joe and PDiddy

Sweet little Sav playing with Jess

We got home pretty late (which was the perfect timing for the Texas heat to cool down a bit with a beautiful sunset) and the kids got to experience their new play set for the first time!

Andrew exploring and Sav climbing like pro!


Sweet little Benny--if his smile doesn't tell you how excited they all were--then I don't know what would!

Benny and Sav...Bonnie and Clyde...Peanut Butter and Jelly--these 2 are best friends forever!

A break in the action for some more awesome cupcakes! Princess Savannah is beyond thrilled to eat her pink treat!

Andrew diving right on in...

Ethan trying to shove the whole cake into his mouth!

and my little goofball, Ben---I cannot help but laugh every time I see this pic!

Quads of the square table (Ben, Sav, Drew, E)

Double your pleasure, double your fun

Time for some gifts! (Savannah LOVES this part)

Uncle Ed helping Drew

Sav attacking the big box!

The older dudes, were bouncing and passing the younger dudes around in the air and they loved every second of it! Here is Ethan to demonstrate:

By this time, it was 10pm and the kiddos were still going strong!

Where does all of their energy come from?!?! Mama finally put the little ones to bed around 10:30pm. I have been trying to recover from the nonstop partying all week! But wouldn't change it for the world...Such a wonderful couple of weekends spent with awesome family and celebrating life! The quads are SO blessed to have so many people who love and care about them...just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Looks like a FABULOUS time, mama! Selfishly wish WE could have been there too! Those cupcakes are making me want to lick my computer screen. If it weren't for 8 little finger prints, I might just try it. =) I love you!

The Drama Mama said...

That's awesome, Suz!! I especially LOVE the picture of Savannah peeking out the top window...PRECIOUS!

I'm getting nervous about tomorrow, but thanks for walking me through everything. Say a prayer if you think about it. Love & HUGS!

Jen said...

The McNulty Family said...

Awww your post makes ME all warm and fuzzy inside! GREAT pics mama .. LOVE the new play set and LOVE those babies like my own. Sooo fun!


Penny said...

Adorable! Some of the cutest 2 year olds I've ever seen!
I've noticed that lately all the boys seem to be dressed/undressed alike now. So, how are y'all distinguishing the twins without Drew being the only one in stripes? Are their differences (I don't see any, but I'm sure there are some.) easily identifiable now?
Just curious. =)

Whitney said...

Love your "Quads of the Square Table" caption. Too funny! Looks like being 2 is fun!

Rachel said...

It's so sad that no one enjoys these babies. LOL!! Look at how much fun everyone has while they're with the quads. I bet their little faces were in awe when they saw the new swingset. Love that Sav needed her crown on while she played too! She needs a feather boa! And those cupcakes...yummy! the quads will start realizing what birthdays are and they won't come quick enough.

You are truly blessed! They are so cute, and fun to read about! I hope they had the best birthday ever, and many, many more to come! Happy Birthday kiddos!

Suzanne said...

penny- YES! we have been given some cute outfits that are matching. mama can always tell the twins apart. i don't know how to explain it- its a combination of the way they look at me, their voice--i can just tell. now, their dadda and everyone else? no way. so, people usually just ask me and i will tell them. there are no distinguishing marks. drew tends to have a more plump little face, and ethan's is a bit skinnier.

Nothing goes w/a diaper like a tiara!! :o)

Alicia said...


And I just had to give a shout-out from a fellow decorates-with-baby-gates-in-the-fireplace mama. =) That made me smile because that is my life.

Mommyto3K's said...

Love those cupcake smiles.

Melanie said...

is that a shadow or a birth mark on the back of sav's left shoulder?
btw, LOVE these diaper pics! CUTE!

Melanie said...

and i may be the only person who noticed this, but sav's scar looks like it has healed up great! when is her next surgery?

Following HIM said...

Ok...Sav is SO SO SO precious in the diaper and tiara! Seriously...this girl can strut her stuff. I love how Ben&Sav have their special relationship and E&D do too! They are all four so stinkin sweet and adorable. Melts my heart :)
