Paige's Birthday Party

Even though Paige's official birthday is on Thursday, we had her party this past Saturday. Since Eric was behind the camera - I was doing all the food prep - I don't really have any candids of the guests....well, I do, but I think that everyone would not be too happy if I posted it since it is a shot of their mouths full of cake. Oh well. Here are some cute ones of the birthday girl and her very cute big sister - who by the way, has her very first loose tooth. More on that later....



Paige reading her favorite book and Emily playing outside.



Emily must have hurt her back. What is that face she is making??


And now...the cake photos:

Unlike her big sister - Paige loved the singing...and no real big surprise - she loved the cake. I made both the big polka dot cake, and some additional cupcakes. The polka dots are made from rolled fondant - which my Mom picked up at Michaels. I wasn't sure if Paige could handle those - hence the cupcakes. At first, she wasn't sure what to do with the cupcake - she had never had a whole one to herself. I broke off a piece, and she quickly got the idea. She ate the whole thing. She LOVED it. She even kept the hat on - was too busy concentrating on the cupcake....



Had to include this one of Julie and Emerson. Emerson has grown so much since the last time we saw her. Cannot wait until her and Paige are old enough to play together.




All in all, Paige had a great party. She wasn't even the least bit crabby. Wasn't much into her presents - she liked the ribbon most of all. Thanks to all that came. I swear there were more people here than Paige, Emily, Julie and Emerson.......

Your girls are so sweet in their little sundresses! What a great cake Allison! You did a great job! My mom always made my birthday cakes and I think that just makes it so special. In some of the pictures I can see your mom in Paige's expressions. I remember Emily's first birthday, and yes, she wasn't at all thrilled with the whole idea. Funny how every child is so different. Hard to believe a year has gone by already. Enjoy your girls!
