The Birthday Girl was gorgeous. (As always!!)
The decorations were great.
The goodies were all in place -
- including the best birthday cakes EVER made especially for Hoot by my cousin, Erin Rae:
There were presents galore!
The cake was eaten... or smashed.
And the Owl was pooped when it was over.
All in all, it turned out perfectly - and I really enjoyed it. (That's a big deal for those of us suffering from The Clark Griswold Effect.)
Thanks to the family and friends who all came to wish Hootie a Happy 1st Birthday. It means so much to us that so many people love her. She is a really lucky little kid.
And now, onward and upward - TWO, here we come. We'll bethere before we know it!
