Sandy's Birthday Party

We had a very small birthday party for Sandy today. Bill did a great job of recording it and if I can figure out how to cut out clips, I'll post some. However, we didn't get very many pictures. So if you have pictures - especially of Sandy blowing out her candles and eating her cupcake - will you please email them to me?

Last night I made cupcakes and left them cooling on the kitchen table. This morning Sandy found them.

I was surprised she could reach them. Bill came around the corner and got this picture before she fed the cupcake paper to the dog. Getting rid of the evidence?

I had fun decorating cupcakes. I learned this rose design from an online tutorial. I used a 2D tip.

Last night Bill made several butterfly chocolates using a mold.

Here are the finished cupcakes.

I also made Sandy a party hat. I got the idea from another online tutorial. I used scrapbook paper and curling ribbon. It was really fast and easy.

She wouldn't keep the hat on and tore it before the party started. Here's a close up.

We set up chairs in our backyard. Sandy's high chair was under the beach umbrella. I was worried about it raining. It didn't, but it was very hot!

Here's a picture of Sandy playing with a toy cell phone she got for her birthday. She thought the presents were a game of putting them back in the bag -- until she got some toys and then she just wanted to play with the toy she had just gotten.

Bill set up a monitor in the kitchen on the food table. I had fun going through pictures from the last year to make a slideshow to play during the party.

We're so glad for those that came and shared Sandy's birthday celebration with us. I found this cute poem online and made up some little bags of Hershey's kisses for favors.

As soon as I figure how in the world to retrieve pictures off of my new camera I'll send you lots!
