Big sister is FIVE and little sister is ONE!!!

We had so much fun celebrating the girls birthdays! Since we missed Julianne's birthday by a couple days and Hillary Ashton's birthday was a couple days after we got home from Ethiopia, we decided to have a small, family party for both of the girls.

How in the world is Hillary Ashton already FIVE?!?! She's my baby! I wasn't crazy about her turning four, but at least she was still a preschooler. FIVE...that is a little kid...no longer a baby! I have been telling her to stop growing for several years now, but it is not working!
Hillary Ashton as a baby! She was such a good, sweet baby! I remember taking this picture, it seems like just yesterday!

She brings so much joy to our family!

Sweet Julianne...she has been home for less than a month and has already carved her place in the family. I can't imagine our family without her! She has such a precious, loving personality!

Hillary Ashton is a nut for chocolate. She wanted a chocolate cake with chocolate icing!

Each of the birthday girls making their signature faces...Hillary Ashton's super cheese and Julianne's nose scrunch.

Julianne had no interest in blowing out the candles or in the cake!

Mama tried, but she just wasn't into it!

This picture was taken after she knocked her cake off of her highchair and her cousin Matt caught it!

She traded her cake in for some crackers!
