Camille's First Birthday Party!!!

We decided to have a big bash for Camille's first birthday....and what better place than the park?!?  We invited new friends, old friends, church friends, and family.  It was "our world's colliding."  We had a blast!

Here is the guest of honor/princess/big girl/will always be my BABY girl.


I've been wanting to find just the right occasion to support Cookies for Africa, and this was it!  I made a beehive cake, and Becky (who is as sweet as she is talented) made bee and flower cookies as favors for everyone.



I made Camille her own mini beehive cake.



She was thankful...

Uncle Bobby (Pat's brother)


Miss Tammy

Gabriella

Heidi (a special shout out to the Hollinger's for traveling all the way from Pa just to help us celebrate!)




My dad did the grilling.

Oh, Lynn!!!!!! I am quite literally in tears at the preciousness of these pictures!!!!! That picture of Camille with the icing on her nose and you peeking behind?! That got me started... and there are so many equally as sweet pictures. Looks like a day of pure rejoicing and happiness and I'm so happy for you! Unbelievable that you did her own small beehive cake!! AND... I happen to know that you made this whole party happen having worked the day beforehand, which is pretty amazingly impressive!!

When I was young like the babies, my parents could not give me a birthday party. It's lucky for the children now
