Deanna's First Birthday!

Saturday was Deanna's 1st birthday! With Gene, Nana, and Max here we had a pretty good size crew to help with the celebration. Deanna was completely unaware of what the day was until the cake came out. She was pretty shocked with the cake and everyone yelling (singing) at her. But she had a HUGE smile on her face and was having a grand time. Since Denise's back was wrenched Max took up photog duties and I did cake duties. It was really kind of nice to be a participant instead of a viewer. She also got a good selection of presents but I don't think she really understood what that was all about either. As is typical she ended up playing with the paper and Devin and Desirae played with her new toys. I think it was Gene that said we should have just given her a big pack of post-it-notes and she would have been happy!

Earlier in the day Nana, Max and I took Devin and Desirae to the school to check out their new classrooms and new teachers. Desirae's teacher is the same one Devin had and she also let Desirae have a book to take home and keep. She spent a bit of time until she selected the one she is looking at here. The teacher figured that would be the one Desirae would like because of all the pink she was wearing. So Monday is the big first day of school and I think going this weekend will really help make things go a bit smoother.

OBTW - I am up to 6 sales on photos... Not enough money to do anything with, but considering I only have 19 images up that's not too bad!

Now that's a Birthday Girl.
Desirae looks so mature with her new book.
