Ginny and Meg fluffing and primping the house.
The red lanterns I had to drive all over the city to find as I bought them one day before the Chinese New Year.
"Sweet and Salty" cake from the cookbook Baked written by the owners of the same named shop. This cake is crazy rich, crazy good and only made by crazy people. It's not the easiest cake I've ever made. I actually made it for Charlie's Grammy for her Birthday two weeks before and burned the caramel 4 times! Ahhh! I had better luck with Charlie's cake, but I tell ya, it still wasn't for the faint of heart. Thanks KC for frosting it for me...I just don't have the patience to make it look pretty.
Charlie and Pa's favorite past time. Hangin' with each other.
This is what Charlie looked like as guest were arriving. I looked like he needed a nap.
Cut to five minutes later...this is what he looked like when Michael and Maddie showed up!
Thanks a lot for the socks Uncle Will, I play with them all the time - Love Charlie.
The most beautiful guest in my opinion. Baby Josie!
Sparklers for the sparkler.
Ahhhh....Chocolate Clown Coma.
Charlie opening gifts and loving being the center of attention.
Dada and Charlie blowing out his Birthday candle (why didn't I put a second one on there? I have no idea). Notice the spit coming out of his mouth on the last shot.
Another smile. He only does this when he knows you're taking a picture of him.
Pa and Grammy gave him this doggy card that sounds like a dog barking "happy birthday to you". Charlie couldn't get enough of it.
While I'm on here I should give a developmental update because god only knows when I'll get the time to post again.
Charlie's speech and vocab have sky-rocketed. He talks constantly and always makes sure to say "please" and "thank you", even without being asked. He's using multiple word sentences and often says things like "thank you dada it was really fun" or if asked how he's doing, he may respond "I'm doing really well, mama". Sharp kiddo.
