Myra's Birthday Celebration!

We celebrated Myra's first birthday yesterday. She doesn't actually turn one until Monday, but Mitch is off this weekend, so we wanted to take advantage of that. And we did! They napped together in the morning, then went to play at the park.
For dinner, we had one of her favorites; spaghetti with fruit salad.
As you can see, she loved it. Any of the anesthesiologists want a shot at those cords? I think I can see the vallecula from here...

Then (after clean up!) we went for presents.
Logan is helpful, as always. He was VERY excited about Myra's birthday. I think there was some realization that these presents were sticking around.
Myra gazes adoringly at her very own Elmo. She held onto him for most of the present unwrapping.
This cool toy that Grandma and Grandpa sent was the hit with her, after she was ready to give Elmo a nap, that is. It is pretty cool - all the gears go around and you can move and stack them.

After presents, it was time for cake.
For Logan, I piped all of the words that he had acquired onto the cake, but I had to be more selective for Myra. There just wasn't room on the cake for all of her words. I picked the ones that are the most consistent.
She likes it?
The ice cream was a problem - too cold!
Until Daddy gave her his spoon!! Then she went to town!
As you can seem she made short work of the cake and ice cream.
And the best part of her birthday? LOTS of naked time!!

Seriously? Myra is already 1?? I still remember when you were pregnant and pretty... time has gone by quickly! She's so cute.

I love the cakes. You are so brave letting the kiddos making that mess. :)
