Elaine’s First Birthday Party–Presents Galore!

We had a family party on November 6th to celebrate Elaine’s first year of life.  Grandma & Grandpa Godby flew in from Denver, and Grandma & Grampa Hamilton drove down from Mass. for the day.  We had a “bunny party” because Elaine’s bestest friend is Bunny.

I made bunny cakes.  These are for the adults.  I made a pink one just for Elaine!

This is Elaine’s cake and the table.  As you can see she was spoiled with lots of gifts!

Just waking up from a nap and not too sure about all of those camera flashes!

Still a little shy and uncertain…

The whole family – Elaine, Mommy, and Daddy

Let the party begin!  She knew just what to do – get rid of that paper and discover what is inside!

Blocks, baseballs, and a new diaper from Mommy & Daddy…

Elaine's 1st Birthday
There’s a story here.  My Gramps used to have a miniature horse named Mr. Ed.  When my grandparents moved they had to sell Mr. Ed.  This super-soft stuffed horse was Gramps’ little reminder of Mr. Ed.  You may remember that my Gramps went home to heaven in August.  Grams send Elaine the horse, as well as a book that Gramps read every day during his illness.  Special!

Bath toys, noise toys, and puzzles from the Hamiltons.  Which one to play with first?  Clothes, tights, puzzles, and a Fridge Farm from the Godbys.

The cash stash came from Uncle Evan.  It came in a really cool card.  Yup – he’s definitely the favorite uncle right now!
