Here are some photos of the small family celebration we had for Kate last night. I don't really think mega 1st birthday parties are worth it, so we just had cupcakes and opened presents. Gram and Grandpa are coming for dinner and more cupcakes on Sunday, so we'll bring out some balloons and festive plates and napkins for that, but all in all still fairly low key. That's what you get when you have Thanksgiving, Christmas, and 3 birthdays within 3 months of one another (and you're too young to remember any of it)!! I think she had a good time.
Maggie sang Happy Birthday and blew out her candle for her. Then they split one chocolate and one vanilla cupcake so they could have some of each.
Look at all that frosting! Neither of them really ate much of the cake!
Not all that messy.
Maggie also graciously opened all of the presents for Kate. There was a little bit of "why are all these presents just for her" drama. Luckily, a late Christmas present from Nana and Papa arrived yesterday afternoon, so Maggie was able to have one of the gifts for herself.
After all those new toys, all Kate really wanted to do was climb on her favorite chairs and fall off on her head. C'est la vie.
As always, there are more pictures on Snapfish. Oh, and by the way, that ugly blob on her shirt in those photos is the remains of an M & M. I should've changed her shirt, but we had our hands full trying to keep Maggie from ripping through all the presents before Kate could even see them!
