Audrey's First Birthday

Audrey's first birthday was a blast. She showed up fashionably late because of a nap that lasted longer than expected and the weather kept us indoors, but all in all it was fabulous. We had a houseful of friends and family help us celebrate this milestone. Here are a few pictures from the day.

I'm not one who thinks a first birthday party should rival a wedding, so the decorations were kept nice and simple with a few homemade touches.
Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and a flag bunting to match the her invitations.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles, everyone agreed that these were delicious and as a bonus they were super easy to make. Here is where I found the recipe.

 Audrey loved eating her cake. We joke that she explores the world with her pointer finger and her approach to the cake was no different. After she realized she liked it she dove right in. My only regret of the whole day is that we didn't have the video camera out to film her eating the cake. I figure if that is the worst thing about the whole day then we did pretty darn good.

She didn't think opening presents was half bad either. 

I wish I could take credit for the beautiful photos, but all credit has to go to my sister of Erica Cunningham Photography. Thanks to everyone who helped make this day extra special.
