We celebrated Kendall's birthday on the 26th. We started out with a fabulous lunch, made by my mom - these awesome feta cheese quesadillas and meditteranean rice salad. Delish.
Then, we opened presents. Kendall's new thing is to say, "Ooooohhh" in a sing-songy way, which is really cute. So she did that with every gift that we opened.
Next was the cake. I made this Carob Cake and Frosting (which was actually really good) in little Christmas tree molds, and tried to decorate them to actually look like Christmas trees.
She started out not quite sure what to do with the cake.
Then she kind of liked playing with it.
Until we all started laughing at her reaction...
to which she broke down and cried. No cake for her!
After she calmed down a bit, she let me feed her some cake, and she ended up eating about half of one little tree.
All in all, it was a successful lunch and party. Kendall really liked being the center of attention (except for the whole laughing at her thing), and loved all her gifts, and was especially happy to celebrate her first birthday with her aunt and uncle, grandparents, and cousins.
