Claire's first birthday

Sadly, Claire is closer to 2 years old than she is to her first birthday, and I'm just now posting photos from her party.

I didn't post much about Christmas last year, but, well . . . it wasn't great thanks to a nasty little stomach bug.  Claire's original party was postponed, and by the time we celebrated, most of the treats I had ready were stale or too old to serve.  It was still cute on the 30th when we made up for it, and let's face it . . . she didn't really know the difference. 

Here are the two photos from her REAL birthday that we celebrated at home.  She was the only one who didn't get sick, so I think she's probably the only one that really enjoyed her birthday cake.





And here are a few from her belated birthday party:

You throw a GOOD party, my friend. I especially love that there were donuts! That's brilliant. Maybe me want to do cider donuts for my November birthday...how have I never thought of that?!

First birthday of baby doll is such a lovely day with dear ones. Party planning for my colleague's promotion is a surprise from our side. Already hired the best Chicago event venues for lunch and beverages. Soups will be served, drinks, food, desserts and yes cake cutting will be done to make him feel special.
