First Birthday Bash

Aubrey had a strawberry-themed birthday party

There were strawberries everywhere...

From her dress

to her hair

to the food

and of course the "cake"
these are supposed to be strawberry-shaped cake pops, but they didn't quite turn out the way I hoped,
but they at least they tasted delicious!

After filling our tummies with chocolate covered strawberries, and peanut butter & strawberry jelly sandwiches, it was time to open presents.

Aubrey didn't really care about the unwrapping part,
but she did stop and read a few cards
Digging into the loot
Aubrey always sits with her feet crossed like this,
very lady like :)
Mommy was very happy that Aubrey received
some "girly" gifts...there are way too many
cars and trucks around our house

Amoung these girly gifts were:

baby dolls

a bracelet

and lipstick

We had to stop for a few pictures before the birthday girl could dive into her cake
Four Generations

Cake eating attire...bloomers and a birthday hat

When Aubrey first laid eyes on the cake,
she looked pretty excited

Then she glared at the cake for a minute
She stuck a couple fingers into the icing,
but was not interested in eating it

She was giving us some very strange looks
I finally had to give her a few bites of the cake,
which made her quickly realized how yummy it was...

and she dove in

When she got tired of eating the cake,
she started playing in it
I was very pleased that Aubrey enjoyed devouring her first birthday cake; Luke was a severe disappointment with his first birthday cake,
I don't think he ever took a bite of it!

Aubrey showing us how old she is

Big birthday smile

A birthday is not complete without a birthday hug
from your big brother!

We ended the party with
our one year chair the buff
A bit of a change from a year ago
