October 16, 2010 - "Happy Birthday" Made Her Cry

After months of planning, ordering, organizing, addressing invitations, cutting out butterflies and just generally stressing that everything would work out - today has arrived. It's time for Georgia's birthday party. Yeah!

It wouldn't be an event though for any woman in my family without us running late, so yes, we were running late. The party was at my sister's house and we arrived an hour and a half later than I had wanted to. So that had me making sandwiches and arranging the food as the guests arrived.

Food that adorable little Roscoe was all too happy to beg for...

And Georgia's beautiful birthday cakes made an appearance too!

The main one for all of us...

Friends and family filled the house making for a warm, loving and happy party.

My wonderful sister who let us use her house...

We opened presents.

Then sang "Happy Birthday." Yes, that song made Georgia cry. Not quite the reaction I was going for with it.

And we discovered Georgia is too polite for a cake smash. It just doesn't seem to be her thing.

As the afternoon wound down, I believe this will go down as a successful first birthday party. The guests were fed, the cake eaten and the presents opened.

And my little girl was full of smiles most of the afternoon, as long as you don't sing "Happy Birthday."
