More of the first birthday

Technically, Audrey isn't 1 yet, but she will be in a little over an hour.  We celebrated her birthday quietly as a family, and it was really fun.  This morning Eric took Amos and Maggie to the dollar store to pick out some presents for Audrey.  We didn't buy the other kids presents for their first birthdays, but we thought it would be fun for Amos and Maggie to have something to give her.  We had no idea that Amos would totally embrace "giving."  He spent the whole afternoon wrapping up everything he could find to give to her.  He even gave her some of his trains!   He was really cute about getting ready for her party.  He chose the library as the location, set out the picnic blanket, and lined up all of her presents for her.  He was really disappointed that I didn't have any balloons though...


Maggie was most excited to let Audrey share her presents with her.  Such a good big sister ;)


I made a cake:



And we watched Audrey eat it:




I still can't believe she's one, but I guess I'll get used to the idea...

Great pictures Laura. Nice to hear that Amos was so excited about his sister's birthday. He's a good big brother. Happy Birthday Audrey!
