Makenna's First Birthday Party

First, let's set the stage. Makenna's party had a pink theme. From the paper lanterns (which Makenna calls "bah" for "ball")...

to the strawberry cake!

Let the party begin!

Makenna got to open her xylophone early-she loved it!

Makenna and Jasmin

Makenna spent a lot of time practicing walking during her party.

And she's off...

Then it was time for cake. Cousins Jacob and Jadyn were on hand to help blow the candles out. (Makenna looks somewhat suspicious of the cake)

"Hey it's actually tasty!"

"and squishy.."

"and sticky..."

"oh yeah, and tasty!"

"I wonder what it would do for my hair?"

Then Makenna and Jacob talked about life.

Then it was time to open presents. No, Makenna, not get in the presents.

Unbelievably CUTE!!!! I feel like I was there. Ricky and I just got done howling at these pictures. So glad you all had such a good time. So sorry we missed the party; Ricky got hit with this thing yesterday so he's in the bed today. Hope you all stay healthy and happy. Thanks for sharing the photos; they're priceless!!!! Much love, Pamu & Ricky
