Everybody loves a birthday party. We celebrated Stella’s this past July 28 (put that in your calendars and send cash in the coming years; we’ll see that she gets it…) Erica had a ladybug theme (I mean if we did her nursery in ladybugs then we simply MUST carry the theme into the first birthday party, right?) and we celebrated in Ohio with both of our families together. Seriously, though, we recognize that children are a gift from God and we are grateful to him for blessing us in this way. Below are some pictures with little commentary, but then again you aren’t on this particular blog to read anyway, are you?
Here is a moment of great anticipation.
And this would be a moment of great satisfaction. You can’t see her other hand but she has two fistfuls of cake. She seemed genuinely shocked when we finally took the cake away from her before she had finished the entire thing.
Last but not least, no first birthday is complete without a cabbage patch kid.
