hayden's 1st birthday

It's hard to believe it, but one year ago today this little girl entered the world. She came at three o'clock in the morning and has been a night owl ever since. It's a good thing that she's so sweet, it makes all the long nights worthwhile. We had a little party for her tonight with all the grandparents.

Hayden had a lot of help opening her presents from big brother and sister. She got right to work, playing with everything (except for the toy I bought her, I forgot to get batteries, so it's a dud until we get four Ds in the busy ball popper).
I made red velvet cupcakes for the little birthday girl. At first she didn't know what to do with her cupcake, so she smeared the frosting all over her tray. After a few tastes of frosting off my finger she got busy eating the cupcake.

Of course, it wouldn't be much of a party with out a swordfight between the grandparents. Here, Nanny and Pops battle it out on the Wii (Nanny won... don't mess with Nanny!)

Jen - You throw the best parties and make the best cakes! Don't forget, you were a night owl too at that age - you were born at 12:58 AM!

Hayden - you are a sweetheart. We love you!
