Well, as it turned out, not only the birthday girl was under the weather for her birthday. On Thursday, my mom called saying that my dad was sick and really contagious and that they weren't going to come and risk spreading his germs. Then, on Friday, we got a call that Husband's mom Meme was in the ER and was going to have emergency gallbladder surgery. It appeared that our family was dropping like flies! We weren't sure whether to go on with the birthday extravaganza or not! Instead...we just toned it down a notch and decided to celebrate with the grandparents once everyone is fully recovered.
Here is the final Hungry Caterpillar of pictures. It was crazy to see and compare how much she's grown over the past 12 months!
I think she could tell that something was going on that day because she didn't take a nap at all!!
...and you can tell from her sleepy eyes in most of these pictures!
Fabulous caterpillar made by Kim Jones!
(The best cupcakes that you'll ever put in your mouth!!!)
Bless her heart...she was sooo sleepy.
But she perked up a little to 'blow' out her candle.
(we had been practicing all month!)
Then she went after it...
...and shared with Daddy!
Thanks Kim! MC really enjoyed her first cupcake!!!
G was there to assist in opening the fun!
We had a great time celebrating our little girl with such wonderful friends and family. I still can't believe how fast the year has gone by and how much has happened in that year! I look forward to what this next year has in store!!!
**and in a health update, all grandparents have fully recovered and are doing well :)**
