Yesterday was Sara's 1st birthday! And it snowed. How fun is that. The season's first snow on your birthday?! We celebrated her birthday today since Saturday was so busy with the piano recital and the Nutcracker. First birthdays are always simple affairs at our house. We make a cake. Well two actually. One for baby and one for us. And then open a few presents. The big excitement is always about the possibility of cake annihilation! Will she dive in face first? Take enormous handfuls? Will cake be flung, smeared...you get the idea. Suspense is a wonderful thing!
She totally pulverized her cake. It turned to mush. I don't think she ever put more than a few bites in her mouth. It was more fun to smush it everywhere. We laughed and laughed, it was good fun.
