Finally Official

In an overdue post, allow me to announce that Amelia can officially be one year old now!

No thanks to her parents, Amelia recently had the opportunity to smash birthday cake between her fingers and smear it on her face/hair/sisters. We all know that the smashing of the birthday cake is a rite of passage for one year olds.

Our small group was thoughtful enough to surprise Amelia (and us, too) with a special "#1" birthday cake, birthday hat and decorations. Thank you, Small Group! Where would we be without ya?

We were at Erik and Susan's house...

Blow out your candle, Little Darlin'!
Amelia appears a bit dazed, I know. I think it was the cake, the frosting and the fork--just too much excitement to take in!
She is clearly fascinated!
And our group even provided a special birthday character for the party!Oops, I guess that's actually Corey. Sorry, Corey!
