Addy's Birthday Party

This past Saturday we had a family birthday party for Adeline. To make it a bit more convenient for everyone time-wise we decided to do a breakfast party from 10-12 so that everyone's day wasn't taken up by a mid-day party (not that that's bad but we thought it would be a nice change.) Sadly some of our favorite family members weren't able to make it but we still had a blast and I was so grateful that my cousins made the trip out. They are the life of the party with their constant smiles and funny anectdotes. :)

Addy was more than happy to eat a big breakfast. Its become her favorite meal of the day! Here she is with a giant #2 balloon behind her while she waits for her food to be cut up.

Excited for a good breakfast.

With all the busyness she got a little help eating from Aunt Terri. Usually she refuses help but Aunt Terri must've had some favor with her!

The theme was "Elmo" so my mom found an Elmo cake pan. I made the cake but she did all the decorating! Addy loved it.

Is it possible that GG loves birthdays more than Addy? I think so.

Well we at least know GG likes the hats better than Addy did!

Shannon brought a date.... who wouldn't want Frank as a date?

Lindsey really did bring a date. It was nice to meet this "Nathan" guy that I've seen on her facebook!

John Michael did great until it was time for a nap. Surprisingly TuTu was able to get him to sleep despite the noisiness!

Party pictures

Mom Hamstra, Dabo Hamstra & Auntie Donna (Not a great picture... but it shows they were there!)

Shannon & me (wow, I just realized how excited Shannon is to be there... haha she's gonna love me for posting this!)

Addy wasn't quite as into her cake as she was last year. She was a bit shy and overwhelmed by us singing Happy Birthday to her. She kind of looked down the whole time.

But I think blowing out the candle was a bit more exciting for her. Can you tell?

Digging into the cake with her hands was a bit hard for her to do... she's SUCH a girl! So, she found an alternative way to taste test it.

And seemed quite pleased with the outcome

"Wow, does Mommy really know I'm eating this cake??"

"I guess it doesn't matter!"

Sharing is a new concept for the Adster pie but she seemed willing to let her favorite older cousin take a bite.

He wasn't as excited at the prospect of her offer.


All in all she had a fabulous party! She got a lot of nice things (thanks to everyone for their generosity). Some of her favorites are her "Elmo buggy" (a beautiful baby stroller from GG & Bampa), her Dora tent from the Morfins, and her TMX Elmo from TuTu & Grandfather. Pictures of her playing with the toys soom!

Cómo es pathetic. Él comió como un ser humano grueso que el comería. Como una mitad libra de tocino cada mañana -- no incluyendo la salchicha y los huevos él comió.
