Yup, my Sweet Anabelle is almost one! Where did the time go? Yesterday we had plans to throw a fun pool party for Anabelle's 1st birthday, but plans changed unexpectedly! We (along with many other West Michigan families) had battled the monsoon we got much of Friday night. We were left very tired, but largely unscathed...lost power, water and little sleep for Brad, Sabrina and I were the worst of our damage. We were extremely lucky as so many in our area lost so much!! Needless to say, we couldn't really throw much of a party without working bathrooms or electricity, so Brad's parents hosted the party at their house. We all had a great time, especially Anabelle who was spoiled with goodies and lots of lovin!
All five of the Grandgirlies! All blue eyed blondies!
Beginning the big birthday meal! Anabelle and her cousin Sophie who were born just 3 months apart!
Trying to figure out this silly hat!
Present Time! Anabelle on her new toy!
Love my Grampee!!Cake time began like this...
And ended like this! Anabelle hated the texture of the icing and began to cry almost immeadiately! We kept trying, to entice her with the sugary goodness and the yumy cake, but with no luck!Maybe next year! Thanks to the whole family for helping us pull the party together in the midst of our chaos! It meant alot to us that we were able to still give Anabelle a great 1st birthday! Love you guys!
