Just a few words and lot's of pictures from Katia's first birthday party. Today we had a Teddy Bears' Picnic birthday for our sweet little girl. We had fun making a craft, playing pass the parcel (for the older kids), and having a picnic on the floor.
For lunch we had chicken salad sandwiches, cucumber cream cheese sandwiches, and peanut butter and jam sandwiches. We had two salads: broccoli slaw and pasta salad and lots of fresh cut up fruit! For dessert, I made up chocolate zucchini cupcakes with vanilla buttercream icing and Winslow and I had made tiny flags to go on each cupcake. They were cute!
At the end of the party we opened up some very lovely gifts from our guests and then gave our guests a little something to take home (books and some home made sugar cookies).
It was a lovely party that Winslow and I put a lot of love into (we were up late with two kids that did NOT want to sleep!). Tomorrow is her real birthday and we will be having a more quiet kind of celebration. Lucky for us, Winslow will have the day off :o)
Happy birthday Katia! We love you through and through!
