Maggie's Party: April 12th

Maggie's 1st birthday party was a total success. This is the cake I made her. Green cake, pink frosting, cut in the shape of a flower (which you can hardly see), and green foam leaves stuck in the sides.
Maggie's first inclination was to pull the leaves out of the cake and poke herself in the eye with the pipe cleaners I used to plant them in it. It didn't stop her from enjoying another bite!

Maggie enjoyed her cake much more once we handed her a spoon. Ben enjoyed the chocolate cake he selected for everyone else to share. He loved this party hat so much that he wore it the entire day. He even came to our bedroom to wake us up the following morning wearing the hat! He looked so cute!
This is the only picture we got of the four of us the entire day.
Maggie got a quick bath after the cake, and she was ready to open some gifts. Ben and his cousins played upstairs (thankfully), so Maggie got the spotlight all to herself. She took the opportunity to shine. Smiled from ear to ear! Quite the little show-off!

I love the pink and green cake - very impressive. I did look at all your pictures and it looks like Maggie had quite the birthday. And even getting one family picture in is an achievement. I know I'm always running around so much - I am never in the pictures.
