In all the excitement of our BIG NEWS, I forgot to post about Wendy's birthday! Shame on me!
This weekend we traveled to Ohio for a family reunion. This meant that Wendy got to celebrate her birthday with one entire side of the family, some of whom she had never met before. She was a little overwhelmed at first, but was soon running around asking people to help her with her choo-choo. (The train set was a gift from her Great-Uncle Joe and Great-Aunt Debbie Lee.)
I baked & decorated her cakes on Saturday morning, and we celebrated on Saturday evening. The Elmo cake turned out pretty good, I think, especially for doing it freehand. The other cake was just a spare, since we had so many people to serve. Wendy also got her first taste of her Great-Grandma's homemade vanilla ice cream, which is just about the best dessert on the planet.
Wendy also scored big with presents - people like to buy toys for little girls! We're going to have to weed out some of the toys in her basket, or they'll start to take over the house.
(This is where I was going to insert the video of the whole family singing "Happy Birthday" to Wendy. However, I can't find the book for the camcorder, and I can't find the cord anyway, so nevermind. Use your imagination.)
All in all it was a great birthday, and we appreciated being able to spend it with family. My little bitty baby is growing up!
