Hali's First Birthday!

Happy Birthday girl with Grandpa Barney
Wanting to share her cake with everybody.

She was not at all nervous about diving into her cake.
All of her cousins loved helping her open presents.
Getting ready to blow out the candle. She had practiced and knew just what to do, but she froze under all of the pressure.
Hali's first birthday cake.

On November 16th, our little girl turned one! It was quite crazy to think she has been a part of our family for a whole year. We just had a little party with family and close friends. Of course she got spoiled with many clothes and fun toys. Towards the end of opening presents she started grasping the idea that under the wrapping paper was something new and fun to play with. I made her a little ladybug cake because everybody calls her 'bug', and she sure enjoyed digging into it. We just feel so blessed to have her in our family. Anybody who knows Hali, knows that this girl is full of personality. She loves getting attention and making people laugh. She is a constant ball of energy and we just love her so much.

You did an awesome job on the cake, Linds! I love the new picture on your page header. Hali's little curls are adorable! I'm glad you've settled in and have the internet back so I can keep up with your life happenings.
