Happy Birthday to The Good Baby!

The Good Baby turned one over the weekend. Just now have I cleaned the house, ate all the leftovers and assembled and put away all the new toys.

It was hot as ever-loving hell Saturday. It was 92 with a heat index in the 100s. But even with the oppressive heat, I think everyone had a good time. TGB certainly did.

We had the party in the late afternoon to accommodate nap schedules so we decided to just serve chips and dip and sandwiches. We made a sandwich bar of white or wheat bread, honey baked sliced ham, mesquite sliced turkey, sliced colby and provolone cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato and pickles with a choice of mayo, mustard, Dijon and horseradish.

I forgot to take pictures since I was busy with TGB but I did capture the most important part - the cake:

100% organic vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting made by me

Safari cake for everyone else made by a wonderful local bakery

In the end, it was a great day. TGB was full of sugar and butter and wore out by the end of the day. She could barely stay awake in the bath.

Here's to many many more wonderful birthdays.
