Birthday Celebration

Unfortunately, I was out of town on grad school interviews on Heather's birthday, so we celebrated a few days later with my family. Heather's cousin Emily and my mom also had birthdays nearby, so we made it a triple birthday celebration!

Stephanie went all out for Heather's cake. It turned out really well. Heather's favorite part of the day is bathtime, so this cake was very appropriate.

Stephanie stacked two 9x13 cakes, cut out a tub, frosted the contraption, and added some blue Jell-o to the tub. The knobs are simply mini marshmallows attached to large marshmallows, and she used licorice for the faucet. It turned out great.

We enjoyed singing...

...and then watching her eat the cake. The blue Jell-o was her favorite.

Isn't she so cute?
It was wonderful to spend some time with family, eat a delicious turkey dinner, share gifts, and eat cake! Thanks for all of Heather's birthday gifts--she loves them!

We still can't believe Heather is a year old. She is growing so fast! We love her lots and can't wait to see the surprises she will come up with next!
