Turner's birthday party

Was a huge success. Cake- check, ice cream- check, presents- check, good friends- check, moo shu pork- check! If those aren't fixins for a great first birthday party, I don't know what is.

Because we decided to *recycle* Turner's gifts (as they were still in the attic unopened from Christmas morning,) you may notice some familiar Christmas wrap from an earlier post. Please don't talk about me behind my back, I'd like to think of this as one of my more practical moves. Because the interest level was about the same three weeks later, all the kids got a present to help open. This actually was a big hit- although some of our younger guests (and sister) had a wee bit of a hard time understanding these were actually not for them. Life lessons never start too soon.

I thought the cake would be a bigger hit than the presents, but mostly T enjoyed man-handling the cake (which is true about most food these days.) Maybe he prefers chocolate?

Nonetheless, he did end up with a few bites going in rather than down.

And here is a shot of everyone enjoying another round of new toys. Had we been better planners and had we been in control of conception (rather than God, Himself) we may have thought ahead and not had a baby so close to Christmas. It's like Toys R Us has opened its doors and vomited directly into 107 Green St. When spring rolls around and you are having a garage sale, let me know, we might have a few items to throw in!

Cute cake. Cake is, if for no other reason, a good idea for you to have 3 children. Just think you get to pick out and then eat another one in jut over a month.
