A big hug for Aunt Kitty. Unfortunately a lot of my pictures may have been erased from this day, but we have video!

Amanda had a birthday party a little early. She celebrated her birthday with her friend Tessa who turned 2 a week before Amanda turned one. Amanda had a great time at the party! There are TONS of pictures thanks to our good friends Cayce and Emily. We REALLY appreciate all your help in making the day even more special.
Outside playing at her new sand and water table which was one of her birthday presents.
Tessa--the other birthday girl! Happy Birthday Tessa!
Finally captured on film, Amanda telling us hold old she is.
The reason it is so hard to catch on film is because right after she holds up her 1 finger, she immediately goes into applauding for herself:-)
So nice of so many people to come wish Amanda a Happy Birthday!
Singing Happy Birthday!
Tessa's mom made cupcakes for the girls!
Trying out the cupcake...
For some reason Amanda wouldn't pick it up.
So fun! But she really didn't eat much of it. We were SHOCKED!
Apparently she didn't eat much because she wanted to get back out to her gardening
We love you SOOOOO Much Amanda!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL!
One HAPPY family:-)
Kate drug her guests visiting from the states all the way to Amanda's birthday party. We were so glad Kate and Brett and guests took time to stop by. We are so sad Kate moved back to the states about 10 days later. We miss you Kate!!!
We had a wonderful Mother's Day celebration. Amanda got me this great new picnic blanket which is also waterproof. Since we go to the park everyday and it is currently rainy season, it is perfect and getting LOTS of use.
We had SO much fun with Cakes and were so sad to see her go. Amanda adored her. Seeing her with Amanda melted my heart. And, she was just the best help with so many things. We miss her so much and REALLY wished we lived closer so we could see her and all of Amanda's wonderful family and friends a lot more. We love you cakes and miss you TONS!!! Thank you for everything! xoxo
