Games according to age group...

One of the baby groups plays with bubbles

(had to laugh when I noticed both twins at Tia Sarin's feet begging for attention, as usual!)


The 3-5 year olds playing "candy toss"..and then "candy eat" =)


L's shirt, oh so true: "I can't help it, I'm just cute"


Tug-of-war! Boy did they get into this! I didn't even have to explain, just make them wait till the count of three



Then we celebrated three of this month's birthdays...





Happy 1st Birthday, E!




Happy 2nd Birthday, B!





Happy (17th) Birthday, Katrina!



Twins E & E



In the words of volunteer Nick..."there's OH so much cake action here, you've gotta get a picture!"




(For the first time I was glad that I was one of the drivers.....what lucky soul would get these sticky little guys on the way home?!)


And then drumroll............







The amazing group picture--all 39 kids, and all staff and volunteers who helped!






CDA II crammed in and ready to go (12 kids, 3 or so adults + driver)...





And I know I already posted it yesterday, but this picture was so much work don't you agree it deserves another look?





Our kiddos!!

How absolutely wonderful. What an undertaking---it looks fantastic. Can I come and kidnap one or two (or ten) of those precious babes???

You are so amazing the way you go to such great efforts to make their birthdays special.
