Birthday pics

You know me, it's hard picking favorite pics because they each tell part of the story, but here are some highlights from Hannah's party:

Hanging out with the family after she just woke up from her nap
love this one as she's looking up admiring the balloons
Kevin had to work that day, so here's snuggles for Daddy when he got home.presents time!
Hannah loves playing with Eli's Doodle so we got her one of her own to put in "the church bag". She really just loves biting on the pen the most.
She liked playing with the little bag more than the actual toy. Isn't that how it always goes? =)
Some Valentine's toys sent from Aunt CarriThe adult cake. When I told Kevin to pick up the cake pan from the library he came back with just two simple heart-shaped pans. So I decided to just do a layered cake instead of a decorated cake. I'm not any good at that anyway, and by the end of the week I was exhausted from painting and fighting a cold and wasn't up for that kind of work anyway. Turned out just fine. It's a strawberry whipped cake, very light and tasty. The recipe is somewhere on my homemaking blog, but I couldn't find it anywhere to post the link for you.
Hannah's little cake. She LOVES whipped cream so I just put a drop of food coloring in it to make it pink and use whipped cream for her frosting so it wouldn't be as sweet as regular frosting.
Eli's favorite part of the day. He did this again, and again, and again:
one, two..."...tree!"

the reality of being a parent
Happy birthday, baby doll!

I'm glad you didn't leave any out. They tell such a beautiful story of the day. The balloon ones with Eli are so funny. Happy birthday sweet Hannah!
