my baby's 1st birthday

how often has this happened to you?? i started this very happy day off with this find! twins! we eat a lot of eggs in our house, and it always brings a smile to my face to see double-yolks!

"my first baby is having her first birthday today!" i thought to myself, as she lay in our bed, snuggled closely between me and her daddy. i didn't know whether to be happy or sad....happy that we have had one wonderful, crazy, fun, scary, very much rewarding year with our daughter, and sad because she'll never be tiny again :( she has slipped from baby to toddler so quickly!

the making of a butterfly cake........

i started with the mindset of making one double-layer cake, but it ended up turning into two :) just a basic white cake mix to start

ClaireBell enjoyed the results of mommy baking!

so.....the cakes were baked, cut into a butterfly shape and frosted white!
now its time to

after thinking it through more, i should've bought gel icing, colored dusting sugar, and more candies.....but here's what i did with what i had!

Lots of fun! and perfect for a little girl's birthday =) Try it!

More memories from the day..............

What a
joy it is to be a mother, isn't it? It was a day of rejoicing for our family. We are so thankful for our little ClaireBell and the blessing she is to us every day. She is such a reminder of God's goodness and faithfulness.

"Jesus, thank you for little girls, for first birthdays, and for wonderful family to celebrate with."
