Anna's birthday celebrations

We didn't have a party, we had a special breakfast and evening cake with just family on the actual day, then a brunch with extended family on the weekend.

Here she is on her actual birthday:

Daddy made a cinnamon bun breakfast and we kept the boys home from school to share it (school around here starts at 8 a.m.):

Then Anna opened a present from us - a Huggums doll:

In the evening we followed dinner with this cake - I hope nobody was holding their breath to see it, lol. We had SUCH a hard time icing it that we had to crack open a couple of beers. That Cinderella actually has crossed eyes (I don't think you can tell when it is this small, lol), but Anna didn't seem to care:

On Sunday we had our brunch and Daddy made a more respectable-looking cake (though still nothing fancy). Anna took a huge breath to blow out the candles but still couldn't do it without help, lol:

She got a pink ukelele from her grandparents:

And a pink bicycle from us:

Happy birthday girl with her daddy:

Stay tuned for her photo shoot pics...there are only two, it didn't go so well. :rolleyes: I am seriously thinking of getting a good camera and doing them myself in future, she just freaks out when she is in front of a stranger in the studio.

Very jealous of your hubbies culinary skills. That cinnamon roll looks divine.
