we waited and waited….and then we waited some more – 12 months to be exact (it was such a long wait, if i do say so myself)!
despite the threat of stormy weather, when mini turned one, people came to celebrate and the rain was no where to be seen. it was awesome.
the uncle brought the tent, tables and chairs
the auntie flavored the scene with all the right decor
the MOST IMPORTANT people were there…
while a few guests couldn’t make it, there was certainly no lack of love for mini. the family and friends of this lovely lady showed up in full-force.
the cute kiddo contingent was in effect. i mean, seriously, look at these lovies and then you tell me…
then came CAKE TIME…you got it, there was CAKE TIME….like really good CAKE TIME! complete with some excitement (scroll through and you’ll see exactly what i mean), but the one thing i can say, everyone loves cake (and frosting).
the whole birthday song sung by a group of people standing around her at a table was a little perplexing to mini. she was a little skeptical. but she eventually got into the swing of things….like the party girl that she is.
good food, good friends, family and lots of love make for the very best kind of first birthday party!
a very happy birthday to you, mini. you’re my very favorite one year old (but don’t tell the others).
