Happy Birthday Audrey

Dear Audrey,
You are loved... so much so, that your Oma and Opa threw you a birthday party and then your Aunt Jode threw you a birthday party. Your mommy was on both of their guest lists- but I didn't have to do any of the work.

You have been a treasure and a blessing. We are so thrilled to be your parents and watch you grow up into an awesome woman...

Oh, and congratulations on learning to walk last week. You were pretty tricky to keep up with as a crawler and now you are all over the place!

Oma made this cake from scratch (design from a book that my hubby used to choose his birthday cakes from)

I think it is slightly humorous that Avery's first birthday cake was a low-sugar carrot cake. You, my dear, got chocolate... and devoured it!

I am going to try to get some photos of the wonderful softie that Aunt Leigh made you and the super cute fabric collage card that Oma made.

And... here's a little happy birthday tune for you from Aunt Jode and Uncle Ryan's house. Sorry McClaine didn't dress up more (well at least put on some pants) for your big day!
