A Berry Special Day
For Cole's first birthday, we had a Milk & Cookies party because she loved to nurse. This year, we had a Berry Special party because she loves to eat berries. I'm realizing that next year we may need to get away from the food themes lest a trend develop.
Anyway, since we are still new to the area, we decided to have her birthday party be only for family. We invited fifteen of our relatives into our itty bitty house to celebrate our first born. As it turned out, a few unexpected events prevented five of our guests from attending which actually kept the party to a reasonable size. Still, guests came from five different states which was completely unreasonable and such a demonstration of how deeply loved Cole is.
We visited. Provided an audience for Cole as she played and opened gifts. And ate. What more could you want at a two year old's birthday party?
Since my dad works on the weekends, he came up to celebrate Cole's birthday earlier in the week. We went out to dinner and played out the house. Cole just loves all of her grandparents.
