Birthday Party

Wendy had her first birthday party on Saturday at Grandma and Grandpa's house. It's so nice to live close to family for a change! In addition to GM & GP, we also had my Aunt Diana, my brother Jeff and his wife Lisa, and our nephew Avery. Avery is 5 and one of Wendy's favorite people.

Before the "festivities" really began, Wendy got to spend some quality time with Grandpa. He doesn't get to see her as much now that he's finally working, so he definitely takes advantage of the time he has. They were sitting together in the rocker playing with the Glowworm and reading books and generally cuddling - it was sweet. As you can see from the picture, Wendy loves her Grandpa!

This is a picture of Wendy's cake. It was a cherry-chip cake with cherry icing. In retrospect, I should have made a chocolate cake so that it would've showed up better in the messy pictures, but Wendy liked this one just fine!

Her first taste of icing...she wasn't really sure if it was going to be good, but then the sugar hit her system. :-)

As you can see, she liked her cake! The pink icing blends in, but if you look closely you can see that she's got it all over her face, on her shirt, and all over her hands. She's stickier than she looks! (Seeing her like this, her Aunt Lisa said, "She looks like Boo from Monsters, Inc.!")

After her post-cake bath, she sat with Grandma for awhile, with her Blankie and her Binky. She had to take a nap before opening presents - eating your first cake is exhausting!

All in all, I think her little birthday party was a big success. I think if you need a bath and a nap in the middle of the party, it's probably a good party. :-)
