Eden’s party

We had a larger party for Eden on Saturday. It was just family. We had it at the Lee’s, or our adopted family. They live close to us, so I asked to have it there for two reasons: so it wouldn’t be so far away for Jon’s family (or families live on opposite ends of the valley and his parents have a hard time traveling across it), and because our house is too small to fit all our family, so if we had it at there house and then they wouldn’t have to travel to my parents for the party! I live 30 miles round trip from my parents, which mean the Lee’s live about 34 miles round trip. It really eats gas and time.
I designed and made the cake. We just had sandwiches and turkey wraps for dinner.

This was before the candle was lit, but I was taking a video while we sang.
Eden took a while to dig in but she had fun once she did.

Some of the Lee kids. The first one on the Left is there cousin. Then it’s Kierra, Jacob, and Jarom in the helmet.

My dad, he was sleeping before I took this picture.
Brien (BIL) playing with Eden, for whatever reason she liked holding the fork with him.

Ooohhhh, a card and money!

Family watching the opening of gifts. It’s Dara (Jon’s sister), then Andrea (my sister) and Brien (BIL).

A hat she got. She didn’t leave it on for long though.
Elana(SIL)(Jon’s sister) and Tommy(BIL), then my MIL and Dara.

I still can’t belive she’s one. I guess I’ll just have play with my girls more and do less chores since they’re growing up so fast.

    Wow! Kudos on the cake! It totally looked professional. I have a ladybug kitchen, and once people see it they usually add to my ladybug collection, so it’s rather large. I have become quite fond of the little critters. It was fun to see my youngest cousin sharing in that! 🙂 I really enjoyed seeing the pictures of my family (the Blakes), I miss them all so much. I’m glad that you are such a faithful blogger, it keeps me updated. Thanks! –Shauntae
    ps-I hope you’re not over-doing yourself! Take care of that shoulder. 🙂

    I love ladybugs. I wanted to do a ladybug cake for Lilah’s first birthday, but I just found a butterfly cake pan, and I wasn’t creative enough at that time to think of this design. I would love to have a ladybug kitchen, but I don’t know if Jon would go for it. I wouldn’t mind collecting ladybug stuff but atlas we have no room. I also just like jewelry and what not with ladybugs, that is one thing I wouldn’t mind having more of.
