Happy 1st Birthday Lily Kate!

Lollipop, Lollipop!  Ohhh la la lollipop...

Oh what a fun time we had at Lily Kathleen Gibson's 1st birthday party!  The weather was perfect, with the sun shining and the wind blowing, not a cloud or a rain drop in sight.  The setting was perfect, thanks to Uncle Phillip, Gage and Ella for letting us party in their back yard.  You will see in the pictures, but his yard is just beautiful.  There is a small patio that looks over his huge yard full of trees, flowers, and the funnest kid's play yard I've seen. The kids were loving the play yard and it is such a lesson learned to see how kids make friends so fast.  A simple "want to swing" and you have a new friend!  The birthday girl was super happy, loving all of the attention that she was getting from all of the family and friends that came to help us celebrate.  She made her rounds, giving love to everybody there.  The party started, and everybody enjoyed cupcakes with lollipop icing, cookies-on-a-stick that looked like lollipops, ice cream, and chips & dip.  Let's just say that Lily Kate is loved by lots and lots... we opened gifts, and more gifts, and a few more.  She got some of the cutest gifts and is wearing and playing with them already!  Now was the time for Lily Kate's cupcake.  She had an over-sized cupcake that was hers to do with as pleased.  We put her in the high-chair and sang "Happy Birthday" as we gave her the cupcake.  And she just didn't quite know what to do with it!  We had a wonderful time at Lily Kate's 1st party, and so did Lily Kate the birthday girl!  Lily Kate gave everybody a lollipop as they were leaving as their party favor -- cute!  Well, this was a short summary of the day's festivities.  There are so many more details and memories that we will treasure from now on.  Thank you to everybody that came and celebrated with us, and we missed those of you that couldn't make it.

And now for the pictures... and be prepared, there are lots!

Cute Lollipops, thanks to Uncle Phillip!
