It's about time I posted about Laura's first birthday parties!! Sweet thing -- she caught a virus just days before her birthday and broke out in terrible blisters all around her mouth. Even now she still has a faint red haze. Oh well. Even a funny looking mouth can't hide her joy!!!
I finally got inspired for the cake a week before the event and then managed to order a lamb cake pan from amazon three days before Easter when they had only 3 left. It arrived in time! It took two attempts before I had a cake worth eating and this attempt has the fallen head repositioned to the left of where it should have been sitting!!
Michael used Laura's party as an opportunity to hand out gifts from Japan. Laura got a stuffed rabbit.
The lilac bush my Dad gave me when Laura was born was in full bloom for her birthday. The flowers decorated the birthday table.
