We had a simple, colorful birthday party for Jane (who looked very much like a gnome) at my parent's house. We made the balloon garland from DesignMom. Very easy, especially since Telfer did the entire thing. I did help blow up balloons but then he did the rest. We got spudnuts - it's not really a trip to Richland unless you consume at least one spudnut. We had a breakfast party with eggs and bacon and donuts because Cate actually eats all of those things! Jane of course would love any meal but it was a beautiful day to have brunch outside on my parent's patio. Alyssa made the little "JJ" tags. Mom got Jane a cupcake from a local place. It was such a wonderful celebration and we loved having cousins apart of it.
Elizabeth took that picture of me & Jane. I am so glad there isn't a picture of us on her actual birth day. I don't think I even held her on the day she was born – sad! We thank God for our healthy girl every day.
