Emily's First Birthday

Finally she was packed with ice cream until her eyes started to glaze over. At last she was carried off to the bath tub for a soak and a nap. It was a great party. Thank you Jeff and Amber.

Then came the birthday cake. There was a large cake intended for all the guests, but Emily got her very own little cake. She was stripped for action and had at it. She dived in with both hands and obviously enjoyed it.

Then the presents were opened. Mom helped to open presents and dad Jeff held Emily while she watched. She got some very nice toys, all very educational of course. There were lots of cute little girly dresses. A girl can't have too many clothes.

Our friends and neighbors across the street invited us to their daughter Emily's birthday. First birthdays are a big deal. They invited a great crowd of friends and family, Jeff smoked a pork roast and fed us very well.

What lovely pictures of a 1st birthday party. You obviously live in a very close-knit community to be invited to such special occasions.
Love the picture of Mum and daughter dressed to kill in matching green.
