Needless to say, this party had to be special. While her first birthday seemed more about us, her parents, celebrating the fact that we had survived her babyhood—she had no clue what was going on—this birthday was for her and she understood that.
One great thing about a Thanksgiving weekend birthday is that we're usually surrounded by family. This year two of my sisters and their families joined us. (You may remember them from the mountains and the gardens.) What could be more exciting than a house full of cousins to help celebrate?

I'm calling this much-anticipated party a success. Happy 2nd Birthday, Cricket!
