Our bookworm's 1st birthday bash...

I'd say Callie's 1st birthday party went really well. Although she decided to boycott her nap that afternoon, she managed to stay quite happy at the party and, as you saw in an earlier picture, absolutely LOVED her first piece of cake. All in all, a good day for our sweet 1 year old. So without further ado, here are the pictures from the 'big event!'

Watching "Big & Small" while Mommy & Daddy
get last minute things done for the party.
Then its off to Grammy & Grampa's...

Cal-squared...
(Calvin & Callie)

Our bookworm birthday girl...

The Grampas in deep discussion...

Ava & Konrad eagerly awaiting their supper...

Some of the party guests...



In the middle of some classic Callie "hand-dance" moves...

Snuggles with Daddy...
feeling a little tired due to no nap...

Grammy with Eli & Auntie Naomi...

Time for presents...

Callie had lots of eager "helpers"...

Ava: "Taaa da!"

Checking out some of her cool new toys...

My attempt at a "bookworm" cake.
The heat wasn't any help as you can see from the droopy icing...

Trying her first piece of cake.
She started off quite hesitantly...

... and slowly got a little more comfortable with the sugary treat...

... then, realization set in and it was game over!

Yummy!

Getting those last few crumbs...

... almost got all of it...

... and... DONE!
For the record,
Grampa had to use the hose on her highchair when she was finished :)

The car ride home...
I believe this is what a 'sugar-crash' looks like...
All partied out...
THE END :)

Thanks for the pictures, Bon! Seeing all the guests made me very sad we couldn't be there as well. Great job on the cake! Could totally tell it was a book! And my favourite is the "done" picture with the paper plate stuck in the tree! Too funny! Love you guys lots. Please give her big kisses for us! I can't believe how big she's getting already.
