We threw a 1st birthday party for Nessie. Well, kind of. Her birthday is on the 28th and since my fam is in town, we decided to throw a small party early. I hand-made 3 invitations, one for me, one for Meowsy/Ompa and one for Lulu's friends and our neighbors, Jacob and Lila and family. I got balloons (which was the highlight for her), I made cookies that the kids decorated and frosting and cakes with eggs. I even wrapped her presents and put up a little birthday garland. Nessie loved her party. And she loved her cake. And now, I'm exhausted!!!!! Bring on Christmas! More photos here.
