Such a big girl now.
Daddy gave her the first gift, it was from us!
Violet! Annika wanted to see what it was.
Us with the birthday girl who is trying to focus on her present!
Annika ran upstairs to get her Violet so Annabel could see that they both have one now.
Annabel went down for a nap 2 hours before her party and we had to wake her up! We joked that it was a surprise party because nothing was set up before she went to bed.
Annabel loved the balloons I tied to her chair.
Birthday cake thanks to Pu.blix because I didn't have the time to make one myself.
Getting ready to sing!
Annika helped out Annabel and blew the candle out for her.
And then it was time to eat!
She thought it was pretty good but we can really tell the personality different between the girls. Annabel just quietly ate her cake while Annika at one year old screamed in excitement!
Then it was time for more presents!
Afterwards we sat out on our back porch with a fire going. Our neighbor, her two kids and her ex-husband we were with us.
Then Josh and our neighbor's 12 year old son played football, or so they called it, they wrestled more than played. They were too funny together!
Saturday night it was even cooler than Friday night. We ended up having to bring Annika into our bed to sleep because the heat wasn't working right in her room (it's the first time since we've lived here that we've had to turn on the heat). During the night she woke up 3 times to inform me "I like cake" and then feel back to sleep. Josh said he was freezing but I woke up covered in sweat because Annika slept on top of me and she's a little heater!!
