Pictures from Billa's Birthday Party!
A very big thank you to everyone who came to Sybilla's first birthday party! And another big thank you to everyone who helped make it happen. Sybilla had a wonderful time and we are so very grateful to have celebrated this milestone with so many friends and family. Billa is truly loved!
The birthday cake came out awesome, the food tasted great, the ballpit was a hit, and everyone had a good time. Billa the kid made out like a bandit and got lots of great toys, books, and clothes. All of her grandparents and aunties and uncles were there, along with all of her friends from school and beyond! Mathilda, Alexander, Madeleine and Cameron all stayed long after the party was over and really helped make the day. Thanks to Michelle, John and Julia for helping us clean up afterwards. You have no idea how much it made today better :o)
We had red velvet cake for Billa's birthday and it went over really well. It broke my heart to have to cut them up since it's definitely my best work to date. You can see the pictures of them above in the slideshow. Billa's favorite toys so far have been the ride on pony we got her, the roll along snail from her friend Justin, and the chatter phone from her friend Jocelyn. She loved everything of course, but so far those have captured her attention the most!
The ballpit was the star of the show when Billa wasn't running around stealing everyone's hearts. The kids had so much fun and I have to admit, what with all the screams of joy and delight coming from her room, I am amazed the cat stayed under the bed the whole time. Billa only had one nap and by the time 7 pm rolled around she was crashing hard. All the energy, people, and cake (three pieces!!!) kept her going for several hours.
Enjoy the slideshow! We hope that you will all stick around for the next year of adventures... it's shaping up to be quite a year!
