Party - Part 1

Ally had her first birthday party yesterday to celebrate with Auntie Shannon and Uncle Tony (and her 2 cousins - Cole & Sydney). They won't be able to make her party coming up this weekend, so we celebrated early with them! We had pizza, salad and cupcakes and everyone had lots of fun. We played on grandma's new toys - the Extreme Roller Coaster, and the Whopper Bouncer. Grandma sure loves buying toys (she's really a kid at heart). In her defense, she does run a daycare, so that could have a little something to do with it.
Ally got a really cool present from her auntie and uncle - a fish! She has not named him yet, but I'm sure she'll come up with something really creative. ;) And...hopefully we can keep the nameless fishy alive. Ally wanted to feed him peanut butter crunch cereal this morning.

This coming Sunday we're going to the swimming pond at Elm Creek Park Reserve to celebrate with some friends from Northern Voices, and with the rest of the family. Here's hoping for good weather.

Yay - a fishy!

There's the little guy - the blue thing floating on the top

Grinning from ear to ear while we sing "Happy Birthday" (notice our tealight candle, we improvised)

In other news, I have my 20 week ultrasound on Thursday! Hopefully everything will look good and we can find out the sex of this babe. SO EXCITED!


  1. A tea candle! That pic made me bust out laughing! I love it. You have a super sweet little lady!

  2. Love the tea light on the cupcake. Hilarious. What a super cutie your girl is. Can't wait to hear about the ultrasound.

  3. The tea candle is so totally something that I would do!


Say something!
