Somebody Had a Birthday

And that somebody was Evie!  We started off the morning by presenting her with her very own birthday headband and number 1 flower, made by me.  The girl LOVES flowers, whenever she sees one she says "wow-wow-wower."

Then it was time for breakfast.

Soon guests arrived and Evelyn had a blast opening her presents! Her favorite part was the all the pretty wrapping.

Next it was time for cake, yum! I made dairy-free banana cake because Evelyn is very allergic to dairy.

After Daddy blew out the candles on the big cake, she tried to catch the smoke. It was a wonderful birthday!
