Birthday Bash!!

Pictures of Party
Last night we celebrated Mielle's first birthday by having a little "mini" party with her cousins.

The kids were prancing with excitement as soon as the "Birthday party table cloth" came out of the drawer. Quinny began squealing and shouting "Happy Birthday" as soon as she saw it. Gabe came barrelling out of the office to turn off the lights and insist we immediately sing "Happy Birthday" to Mielle. So by time Mary got home the small children were whipped into a state of extreme excitement.

Gabe assisted in frosting the cupcakes and attempting to cut the pizza while no one was looking . His mama then directed him into counting the guests at our party to determine how many cupcakes we needed.

Quinny assisted by blowing out the candle the moment it reached the table causing us all to laugh and re-light the candle giving Mielle a chance to actually glimpse the dancing flame.

Peevers assisted by crawling about on the floor grunting and crying untill her loving Uncle took pity on her and picked her up, and giving her a better view of the festivities.

Mary assisted in documenting the moment (see photos above) and directing her children's involvement.

Papa and I glowed with happiness and kissed our darling daughter's cheeks.

Mielle Anne, the star of the show.... she smiled at the flame, listened to us sing, looked at us quizzickly and then happily sucked frosting off her fingers.

It was good.
