Birthday Party!

I know, this is late.... but I finally got the party pictures on my computer. YAY! I don't have a lot because I was busy being Mom and making sure everything was taken care of, but I did manage to get a few.

We had a celebration with Mimi and Nanny the weekend before her birthday. Little Doll LOVED some cake! Seriously, this child has never refused any food that I have offered her. She likes it all!

Nanny made her a special cake... just for her. And she ate it up! By the time we took the cake away from her (well I took the cake away from her, Mimi and Nanny would have let her eat the whole thing!) there was chocolate frosting ALL OVER HER FACE! It was hilarious! The picture must be on Mimi's camera because I didn't take it. :)

We had a celebration with Pappy over that weekend too, but that was TOO crazy and even if I had brought my camera I wouldn't have had a chance to take any pictures. Anyway.... we have the memories!

Then last Thursday we had a little party at our house for the family here. I love a party theme.... but this party was right in the middle of a bunch of craziness for us, so I decided simple was best. I had these cute napkins with coordinating plates and a banner. So I decided to make cupcakes (easy with little cleanup) and decorate them to match (pink and green). We ordered pizzas and I made some homemade ice cream to go with the cupcakes.

Little Doll loved the party and opening the presents.... Daddy helped her and it was very special.

She got very excited over everything! It was wonderful! Then she got to eat her cupcake....

Of course she loved it! And it didn't take long before she figured out that she could pick the whole thing up.... food and a toy! :)

She ate nearly all of this cupcake and it was so much fun. The party was great - we had a great time. These pictures don't even begin to show how much joy we felt in sharing such a special time with our baby girl. Even the Crazy Girl had a blast! She woke up the morning after the party at our house asking for "Party again?!" It was great!

I love being a mom and I am so thankful to get to share in such special times with my children. Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us!
