The boys had a birthday... well, we celebrated their birthdays. They have a given date on their birth certificates from Ethiopia, assuming that they are twins, which as Bis tells us - they are not. Plus, the given date has them at age 4 1/2 . Bis is obviously older and Yordi much younger. So, when we finalize their adoptions we will give them the birthdates of Bisrat Sept 15, 2003 and Yordi July 10, 2004. We had a joint party for them last night. They were so excited. It helped that they saw Molly have a birthday last month, so they kinda knew, but from what we know I don't think they have ever celebrated a birthday.
When everyone got home we had a quick bite of dinner and then they opened up presents from us. The looks on their faces was priceless. Then everyone came- cousins Max, Makenna, and Kyle with Aunt Lynde and Grammy and Papa, Grandpa Joe and Grandma Cenobia, Grandpa, Aunt Tammy and cousin Danny. They were so excited. We had little cakes with their candles for them to blow out and then presents... they had so much fun. Yordi wanted picked up later in the evening and while snuggling on my shoulder said "happy birthdays so good". Some of the pictures arent so clear, but you can tell from their faces how thrilled they are...
