Mom and birthday boy

We celebrated Ashton's 5th birthday yesterday and it was busy and exciting.
We woke up and had his favorite waffles and whip cream breakfast then he, Alexa (my little sister), Weston and Tommy all headed off to Chuck E. Cheese for a morning full of game playing.
Grandma and Grandpa Bell, and Great Grandpa Bell A.K.A. white haired Grandpa came over for a yummy lunch.
My Mom (Mimi) and sister are here helping so they celebrated with us too. In fact, the cute dragon cake that you see was created by Mimi!
Ashton enjoyed opening his presents and was too excited to even eat his cake and ice cream.
It was a very fun day and we are so glad that so many people who love him were able to be here to celebrate.
Happy birthday Ashton bear. We love you!

They're here ! ! !

Quick post from baby land...

Our sweet baby boys were born at 7:56 pm on Sunday, February 19th. We came home with them on Wednesday the 22nd just in time for big brother Ashton's birthday!

Nixon Sawyer Bell (Baby A) weighed 6 lbs. 3 oz. and was 21 inches long.
Cooper Hunt Bell (Baby B) weighed 6 lbs. 6 oz. and was 21.5 inches long.
They came out kicking and crying and in perfect health.
We are so blessed that they never spent any time in the nicu or nursery-they roomed with us the whole time and we were in love with every second we spent with them.

Ashton and Weston are great big brothers. They couldn't be more excited!
Mom and babies are still doing great and we love our new family of 6!!!

Only 4 more days! I cannot believe it... WOW!!

Me and the twinners baby shower

All of the guests-
I will miss all of my friends so much when we move
These tiny Toms were given to us by the cute girls below! They know how much I like TOMS and this was such a fun gift!

The girls who hosted the shower

Me and the babies were completely spoiled at our baby shower. The food was excellent, the company was awesome and the gifts were amazing!
My Mom surprised me the day of my shower. I had no idea she was coming and around 3:00 in the afternoon, there was a knock at my door and there she was! It was just what I needed. I was so, so happy that she was here and that she was coming to my shower that night.
I was so excited to see all of my friends and just have a night away.
Thank you so much everyone who made this such a fun night!

"The Bell Cafe"

The boys decided to build a restaurant with some boxes that we had.
Ashton called it "The Bell Cafe". We printed out some food (pizza, cheeseburgers, jello etc.) and they decorated some menus and spent the morning playing.
I gave them some money and Ashton set up his computers so that he could take peoples orders. It was so fun to see their imaginations run wild.
Last week we went to some friends house and I asked Ashton what they played and he said "I taught them how to play "Bell Cafe" ha ha ha ha!!

****Yes I am still pregnant-thankfully so. Full term for any type of multiples is 38 weeks. We are 35 weeks going on 36 and would loooove to get as close to "full term" as possible. We don't want our little twinners to have to spend time in the nicu :)
