let her eat cake!

...and she is one...
where did that first year go?!
happy birthday to my precious jilly.
p.s. in case you ever wonder...your sisters adore you!

mommy owes you a letter and your own special post...but the past week has been a bit rough...your first ever visit to the ER, colds for all of us, kitchen remodeling projects, and a billion other little "stuffs".
so for now...i'll at least give your "fans" a peek into your cake devouring heroics.
sweet girl, you ate your cake with gusto...

your elephant cake

first taste

second taste

i think you like it... :)


sheer sugary delight

yummo...frosting covered hands!

"mommy...why do you keep taking pictures?"

i know...i'm CUTE...and cake covered!

"hey...mine is all gone grandmommy...can i have some of yours?!"

that was SOOOO good!

and then there was some opening of presents...of course

i LOVE this elephant!

daddy, it is a little warm for this super cute hat (which my neighbor made...LOVE it!)

look at the baby on this house...but me, i'm no baby anymore...i can keep up with the BIG kids! but thanks for the house grandmommy and poppy...i'm gonna have so much fun with it!


and the sugar high ends...crashed out and sound asleep minutes after the party ended (well, after daddy bathed her and got all that crusty frosting off!)

...and one more shot...proof that "it's my party and i'll cry if i want to!"

...actually this was taken on her actual birthday after shots, a runny nose and one too many attempts to catch the perfect birthday girl picture!
