Hayley was at school and Ryan didn't get home on her birthday until almost bedtime so I randomly sang "Happy Birthday" to her all day so that I felt like I was doing something for her! She would get so excited and clap her hands along with my singing every time.
Got to love the obsession with putting things in and out constantly. We just try to keep her away from the garbage because it's really fun to put things in...sure gets a reaction from mom!
Of course, decorating the cake was a highlight of the family party. For Alice, we made a flower out of our puzzel cake.
What did we serve for dinner for our 1 year old's birthday? Tuna casserole on animal plates...she thought it was great!!! Okay, so she couldn't wait for dad to get home so she ate before the rest of us but what more could you want than mom's 100% attention while you're eating!
Okay, so we kind of cheated. For the "cake dig" part we only gave her one piece of our puzzel cake! So much cleaner!
And the dilema ever since we had more than one kid...what can we possibly get for child #2 or #3? Don't we have everything and more than we need?!? Well, she would have just gotten diapers for her birthday but I ran across this fun little toy on a post Christmas clearance and the mommy side of me decided we had to give her something. Now the clutter-free side of me is wondering how we ever got so many toys in our little house?!?!
Anyways, another happy day!
(We have 3 birthdays in 2 weeks in our house so 2 down...one to go!)
