yesterday was pure magic with this little girl!
we started out our day with an egg hunt in Nonnie and Poppie's enchanted garden
spent some time in a tree house
and had our very first encounter with bubbles
BEST DAY E V E R!

so the birthday celebration happened over the weekend and it was awesome.
everyone had a really great time...especially Emily :)
we did a brunch thingy with family and a couple of friends.
we served melons and berries, pastries and coffee....and mimosas.
we kicked open the french doors and the weather was perfect.
people milled around and sipped and nibbled and chatted.
there were lots of fresh flowers and here are the napkins i mentioned.
i love the little calico printed animals and thought they matched beautifully
with the banner and birthday letters.
of course i was too busy to snap any decent photos during the party
so i'll have to rely on those taken by the guests and hope they send them my way
however, i did managed to take a few after everyone left
so i would have something to show you.
i must remember for next time how important it is to have photo friendly lighting
anyways, this last one was captured by one of the grandmas
a split second before she ripped it off her head.
i can't really say that i got that quintessential birthday shot
which i'm a little bummed about, but i guess the important thing
is that everyone had a nice time. there's definitely room for improvement
the next time around, but i'm really happy with the way everything went :)
and still a little bit shocked that my baby is now a toddler.

Emily insisted on wearing her cap while trying on her birthday dress.
it reminds me of an old painting or something so i snapped a bunch of pictures.
she was so good today. i think she knew her dad and i were scurrying around to make
things special for her party. i baked cupcakes and a cake and a practice quiche.
...all of which turned out delicious!! and i've already had 4 cupcakes...
she just chilled in her high chair and watched.
dad worked in the yard and went to the grocery store (twice)
we had pretty much the most productive day ever
SO excited to celebrate her tomorrow :)
