Birthday recap part 1

First of all, thank you to all of you who left such sweet comments about Julianne's video. I worked quite a few hours on it and now have a new respect for film editors but it was all worth it. I think she will really enjoy having that someday and now I am a pro at Windows Movie Maker and can make more fun videos. In fact, I'm considering making one with all her b-day events because we are having so many. But instead, today, I am just posting a quick recap of her actual birthday. We had a very normal, fun day doing all the things we normally do and then had some friends over to help celebrate with cake. Lots of cake. Julianne had her own cake that I made and to say she liked it would be an understatement. We ended up having to take half of it away from her because we were afraid she would eat the whole thing.

We started by singing to the birthday girl


She started slow....picking off the icing and eating it ever so gently......


Then we saw those little hands dig right in......

Before we knew it, a whole corner of the cake was gone!

And she was pretty happy about it!

She went after it full force.......


She then picked up half of the cake with one hand and broke it apart....

and ate, and ate, and ate.......

We then decided that we should take half of the cake away before she at the whole thing

She reached for every last bite

And ate pretty much every last bite......

Looking pretty satisfied after it was gone

The cake was a complete success! Then, it was time for presents. The big red ball our friends brought over was the hit of the evening.

She loves her wheely bug...thanks Aunt Randi!

She enjoyed all of her cards

and her new Pooh train!

and of course no birthday is complete without a birthday headstand......

Thanks for all the birthday wishes for our sweet girl! I'll be back tomorrow with pics from her party we had on Sunday. 13 kids aged 5 and under at Little Gym....what a blast!
