A Party...

Really, who cares for the one-year-old birthday party? My one-year-old doesn't like the sound of the vacuum cleaner, she's not going to enjoy 50 people making noise in her house.

So we had just a few...

And really, for me, it's just about getting the pictures of the kid eating cake.

(BTW, she wasn't so obliging. Maybe there wasn't the lush waves of frosting on a "bought" cake, but she was pretty darn dainty about eating her cupcake. I might have to buy a cake just to try again for the pics to match her brothers'! She still enjoyed it and needed a bath post-cake-eating!)

First, I made the cupcakes -- tie-dye...

And since it was Super-Bowl Sunday, some red, white, and blue ones for the Patriots (note, my dad took this one, isn't it cool?) This almost looks like a great food blog:-)

And my Best Shot...I love how she has her mouth open way before the food is anywhere near her mouth. She is ready!! (Smart cookie.)


The party was lovely, quiet, and simple. My 6-year-old was a little upset with me that I didn't even buy "special napkins." It seemed nice to me!

(More about my baby turning 1 to follow since she's not actually 1 for about 2 weeks. We are celebrating early because I'm heading off to Israel over her birthday.)

See more tasty shots here.

She is just simply adorable!! There will be plenty of time for special napkins. Just eat up her oneness.

J still does the same thing--he opens up just in case his hand starts moving at warp speed, which we all know it isn't. Cute, still!

Aside from that, she's adorable. Love those cupcakes!
