Brooklyn's 1st Birthday!!!



Well we made it through a whole year and now Brooklyn is officially 1 year old! Unfortunately, she was a little sick for her birthday. She picked up a cold somewhere and now she is a fountain of snot and drool. So, for her birthday we took it easy and went for a little family outing at the local McDonald's!



She had chicken nuggets and french fries for dinner but mostly just enjoyed the ketchup. Then we let her crawl around in the play area for awhile with the other little kids and Daddy. When the front of her coat was sufficiently drenched with nose juice, we thought it was time to head home. So we swung by the Wal-mart and picked up some hostess cupcakes and a candle (because we don't have a kitchen to make cake in) and then went back to our nice, warm apartment where we sang "Happy Birthday" and let Brooklyn enjoy her cupcake.


We had to vacuum the floor afterward. I think she probably ate half of the cupcake. The other half ended up in her hair, on her face, the chair, the table, and the floor. But it was SO worth the mess to see her happy face when she stuffed that cupcake in her mouth!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROOKLYN!

Oh my goodness! She is sooooo cute. I love her little dance she did while you sang to her and then her happy giggle as she ate that delicious cupcake. Yummo.

Happy Birthday Brooklyn. Wish we could have been there. Hugs and kisses. -Auntie Sarah and Uncle Tau

I second what everyone else said about her side to side dance during the birthday song. ADORABLE!! The Tiara is a great touch too. She is such a pretty little birthday girl!
