ONE

Megan turned one yesterday. My baby is a year! I've been DREADING that day. I know I shouldn't, but I just can't believe she's already a year old! Man time flies! I just want to hold on to my baby!! No, I'm glad she's growing up.
We actually celebrated her birthday on Monday since Bo was on-call during yesterday. It was really fun and simple. We had my cousing Jackie and her family over for dinner, presents, and Rock Band (what's a party without Rock Band???). I love having family near us!
Megan got some dolls, clothes, a purse, and some bath toys. It really was simple. We didn't go overboard because really she's content with Carter's toys. Watching her with the dolls was hilarious. You could tell she didn't quite know what to do with them. I did catch her kissing one yesterday though.
Megan has been such a joy to our lives. She is so funny. She has a mind of her own. She has always been an independant thing. We really have enjoyed our time with her. We love you Meg!!!
My awesome attempt at making a cute cake. . . sooo not a skill to put on a resume.



The kids were wanting in on some of the action, so they got to use some pots as drums. They were so loud! You couldn't even hear the TV



The end results!!!

HOLY COW, SERIOUSLY A YEAR ALREADY?!!! She really looks like she has grown up in the last little while. she is a cutie, and I love the dollies!! Happy first birthday Meg!

P.S. I think the cake looks fantastic, it was made with love and that is all that matters!! (but that is also coming from a non cake decorator herself)!

Hello neighbors. I just found out how close you are to us. We need to plan a party. I am cordially inviting you to visit us at any time. The door is ALWAYS open. I need to figure out what your email address or phone number are so we can start coordinating. I am homesick for family and friends! It seems like I was just reading the blog where you announced Meg's birth. Has it really been a year? I don't like how fast these little critters grow. Happy Birthday to Meg!
