Superbowl with Friends

Tonight we went over to our friends' house for a Superbowl Party. We rooted for you, Cardinals, even if it didn't work out!

Clara and Elena made friends with Annie, who is only three weeks older than they are, and Christina and Steve were lucky enough to get to be friends with her parents, Kate and Kevin. Here is the hugely adorable Annie, who frequently gets confused as a triplet of our two girls:

The girls did not care a whit about the game, because they had their own games. In this particular game, the girls lined up on the sofa, threw themselves backwards yelling "Down!" and then would laugh and say "Up!" while wiggling themselves up. It's neat that they are all at the same stage of development and like same games (and know the same few words!):

Kate and Kevin were incredible hosts, making us feel so comfortable and at home. They cooked special food for the girls, and made them up fruit plates throughout the night. Right before we left, Kevin made the girls ice cream with blueberries in it, and Kate sat down to help them eat it. She was not quite prepared for the onslaught - three baby birds, all in.

Elena got left out of the couch picture, and doesn't show up well in the picture above, so here's a bonus shot of her cuteness as she swiped an orange segment from the fruit bowl (she was the only girl tall enough to reach!) and nibbled it:

Wait, I thought the girls' bedtime was before the Superbowl even started! What a wild late night for your twins! Beautiful pictures today :)

Hold on, I just remembered that you would have been watching this in the middle of the afternoon. That explains a few things...
