Well Rachel's birthday has come and gone! Wow, what a whirlwind, who knew throwing a party for such a wee tike is so much work! It was all worth it though, Rachel had a blast! My mom and sis-in-law came up early to help me, and we had so much fun while they were here! A lot of our family came up for Rachel's party, and we were so glad they did! Rachel had a blast with all her cousins, perhaps a little too much fun...she's now pretty sick :-( Thats besides the point! In all the craziness, I forgot to take a pic of all the kids together...bummer! I can now see how easy it is as a parent to want spoil your kids...YOU want them to have everything, and I think Rachel pretty much got it this birthday! She is even sporting a "pack and play" for her baby dolls!

This is Rachel enjoying her rocking horse that she got from Mom and Dad:

We also got her a big girl car seat that sits forward (as boring as a gift that is), but my back is ecstatic! We are probably jumping the gun a little on this gift, but we found it for an amazing deal and couldn't pass it up! We got her a vanity for her bedroom. It makes an awesome tent for Rach's Care Bears anyways!

Here is Rachel enjoying her party! I made her cake, I gave it my best shot! It was chocolate, Rachel seemed to enjoy it anyways!

Rachel lost in all the loot, with some of her cousins!

She actually was not that messy-I had to put her hands in the cake! After that she just kept picking up small pieces with her fingers! I was expecting a cake monster, instead she was a little polite nibbler!

Getting all clean in the sink! Such a fun day, I will never forget! We love you baby girl!
