We're going to party like we are 1

Avi Jae celebrated her first birthday by partying with family and friends. Although not everyone could make it we had fun with the people who were there!

To make Avi's day a little more special I tried my hand at decorating her cake and also making cute cupcakes. The cake was fun to do it was my first attempt at a 2 layer and also my 3rd attempt with using fondant.

Jen got some great photos of her digging into her cupcake. I think she was more interested in putting her feet in it then actually eating it.
I hope you notice that she matches both the cupcakes and the cake... yea I did that on purpose
Avi just loves digging into presents. There were so many distracts I think it confused her a big, Luckily Red Fish was there to show her how it's done.

Aren't these the coolest shoes EVER! For who knows how long Lance's sisters and I have been talking about getting baby Converse. Avi is very lucky to have such cool shoes for the summer time.
