Remembering December (The Birthday Part)
In case you may have forgotten, December is a pretty important month around here. A certain thirty-five year old AND a certain one-year-old would be happy to remind you why. After a quiet birthday here for Mommy on the 21st, we packed up everyone for a trip to Michigan to start the real celebrating. When a dead battery stopped us in South Bend, IN (SO close to our destination!) we should have taken that for a sign that we had some unexpected happenings in the days ahead. But we pressed on--there was a party to attend!
We celebrated our sweet Delaney with the normal doting grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends-we-call-aunts-and-uncles and she was pretty impressed with her new zoo animals. (A zoo membership is also on the way--Woo-Hoo!).
Then it was on to the cake! We don't call her Delaney-Cakes for nothing! She enjoyed it, but really, she's more of a sweet-and-sour meatball girl. Maybe we should call her Delaney-Meatball. In honor of her big day, she decided a nap strike was in order. She does look a little bleary-eyed from the combination of low sleep and high sugar. But the gold-flecked tutu covers it nicely.
And then...even better than Badger Red cupcakes, was a Bridesmaid Brunch for me! This picture doesn't do it justice, since my sister and mom were there too. (Baby Sarah Meyer was the only kid to make the invite list and that's because she's my goddaughter). Grown-up conversation and delightful food with my besties! We laughed and caught-up and joked a lot about the Santa making the rounds. What a treat!
