Happy 1st Birthday, Claire!

Claire had her first birthday! 


"Happy Birthday to you...."

She LOVED her cupcake!!!
She gobbled the entire cupcake down!

Hannah had a fever and slept through much of the party, but was excited for some ice-cream!
Yay for birthdays!!  Thank you, says Claire, for celebrating with me!
Then she promptly went to "eating" her foot.
