We held a First Birthday Party for Anna on May 11 at our house – it was loosely an Alice in Wonderland Party. Friends from the area joined us to celebrate our little one-year-old!

Anna’s First Birthday cake, courtesy of a wonderful French bakery a few miles form our house – vanilla and raspberry!
Petit fours from the same bakery – watch out, as we found out, the green ones have nuts in them. And the swans – they were a little bit of heaven!
Anna ready for her guests to arrive and for the party to begin!
The birthday girl!!!

The candle is lit and we’re ready to sing Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday, dear Anna!
Blow out your candle!
Anna touched the cake before we could take it away from her – she quickly learned that she LOVES cake as much as her mama does!
What? No more cake for me???
All in all, we had a great first birthday party for our darling! A big thanks to everyone who came and sent presents! (Don’t worry, your thank you cards will eventually be in the mail.)
