Snapshots In Time

Saturday we were blessed to host my niece's 1st birthday. There were more than 50 people milling around our deck, eating on the patio and swimming in the pool. As I mentioned in Friday's post, it was a perfect way to spend a Saturday: surrounded by family.

Here's a few shots of the fun. Yes, they are mostly of Teagan. She was, after all, the star of the show and if you weren't totally in love with her before this post, you most likely will be by the end of it!

Such a beautiful cake. The Hundred Acre Woods were well-represented today!

Daddy of the Birthday Girl, thanking everyone for coming out to share the fun.

She didn't quite know what to do with the crowd roaring out the strains of "Happy Birthday" to her all at once. That's her pretty momma holding on to her.

"Mmmmmm, sugar good."

"This is so fun! How did I not know about this frosting stuff before?"

Teagan and our little Aidan are only two weeks apart in age, and while we were watching her destroy her cake, I got a little choked up thinking about next year's party. What fun these two little girls will have, growing up together and being buddies. I am so thankful that the Lord saw fit to give Aidan a little girlfriend to share her childhood with. We have some mighty fun times ahead of us.

Thank you, Lord for the treasure of Teagan. And thank you, Lord for the coming treasure of our precious Aidan. My heart is full.

Looks like a fun party! I love one year olds devouring frosting.

So, I couldn't sleep (had a Starb*cks yesterday at noon and forgot to ask for decaf!)and found my way back to your blog in this wee hours this morning--so much has happened since the last time I visited! I'm so happy and am rejoicing with the whole Gang! I can't wait to hear more...He is so good...and I believe that is the understatement of the century!
