As with tradition, I made Grace's birthday cake...
with an individual cupcake for her to enjoy on her own.
I had a lot of help from Owen.
Grace's "whole-orange" cake on her FIRST birthday!
Grace didn't need to be persuaded to eat her cupcake... she dove RIGHT IN.
And what's a birthday without a few presents to open?
new clothes from Aunt Dorothy...
Luke drew a picture of him teaching Gracie how to walk.
Evelyn gathered up a few books and items from around the house that weren't needed and were more suitable for Grace: mainly cardboard touch & feel books, My Little Ponies and a few other random items for Grace to appreciate.
