My favorite thing to do is still to make a good old fashioned mess with mommy and daddy’s things! ha

We went to dinner at Maggiano’s with Aunt Brenda, Ed, and her kids (our cousins) Nick, his daughter Peyton, and AJ. We had a lot to celebrate including that AJ and Nora will be getting married next summer.

Peyton was excited to meet Amelia.

Peyton brought Amelia fun books for her birthday. Amelia was pretty tired after her cake filled day.

Yes it is a practice butterfly cake in preparation for the other upcoming birthday at our house. Mommy’s not the best baker, but the trial run went well.
