My dear, sweet lucy must have sensed that the thought of a quiet, casual, scoop-some-ice-cream-on-a-paper-plate type birthday party was sounding really appealing to me this time around.
But NO. She wouldn't have it. Not after her brother got this kind of celebration for his first birthday.
She crawled up to me a few weeks ago and with her innocent, puppy-dog eyes told me that I must prepare something wonderful. A celebration fit for her first birthday. A planned party that would reflect our appreciation for the good behavior she's given us for the last year!
So we did.
We planned a bash for our little Lu. Dear, sweet Lu who has been nothing but a piece of cake since day one!
And it was so fun. So fun to celebrate her, and to finally (I think?) realize that she is growing up.
We love you so much!
(P.S. There are many more pictures to come. My computer is FULL. Yep...chuck full! I can't do a darned thing until I go buy another external hard drive and clean this baby up! So stay tuned.)
