Back to the acorn theme. It was no surprise when my Momma got around to planning my first birthday party that she had an invitation designed with a little acorn and the opening sentence, "We are nuts about"... well, me, of course!
And here I am trying to figure out what in the world is happening...I certainly think Daddy has lost his mind. He is always telling me that fire is hot and to avoid it at all costs...and here he is, shoving a candle in my face. Why is it that adults get to break all of the rules?
What in the world is this thing, anyway?
Am I supposed to eat it?
My Birmingham family also made the trek to celebrate with me. Here are my cousins and my Momma's sister. Isn't she pretty? I think she looks like my Momma, don't you? And my cousins are sooo much fun! I want to grow up to be just like them.
And here is one of the whole crew! I forgot to look at the camera. Oh well.
And this is what I felt like at the end of the night....
Plum tuckered out and in my best friend's bed!
As everyone knows, birthdays can be exhausting.
I don' t know about you, but I am headed to bed to get my beauty sleep.
After all, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
