Gosh, She's One Already

This is where I originally put a picture of the cakes I made the girl. One for her alone and one with the party theme. Then I realized that, according to family tradition, I put A's name on her cake. I know! Imagine. So anyway, here's the part I can show you, but you miss all the super-cool stripes down the sides and that the cake is actually shaped like a one. Someday, I'll get some quality editing software!

The girl.
Comfy in her new chair, enjoying a good read.

The anticipation!
"Will I be able to blow the candle out?"

Nope... but they gave me cake anyway!

The balloons were one of the best parts!

Shortening does wonders for the hair.
It's never been softer or more lustrous.
A was such a good sport about opening gifts, she studied each one appreciatively.

Ooooo, a slide!

Party Animal.
Seriously, I didn't get a picture of her until after the party was over.

This is a terrible picture I've improved as much as possible.
Her doc declared her to be out of order but fine, so we're transferring the money back to her college account instead of the Orthodontics Fund as planned.
