Par-Tay

Today was Gabriella's birthday party. It was a gorgeous day and we all had a blast!

First, some warm-up pictures from last night, testing the hat out....

No way would she leave it on for even a second.



But, I figured once distracted by cake, she'd leave it alone. You'll see in the pics to come that I was right!

The two grandmas

All nice and clean... not for long!


mmmmmmm, I remember this sweet stuff!


Ok, time to really dig in.





Time to open the presents.






And so as to not leave the star of the blog out... Bing up to his usual antics. Do you think they have AA for cats?? He was obviously quite interested in the beer.

What fun it looks like everyone had! Gabriella looks gorgeous. Much happier than Savannah was--she did not even like the cake and the hat was a definite no!

The cake is beautiful(not prettier than the baby though)! Love that last cake/icing photo. That smile is the best!

Glad she had a happy day and so did Bing!

THe pictures of her chowing down on the cake are so cute...But I was laughing so hard at the last one with Bing attacking the post.....I just love cats. They have so much personality.

You might have to start a whole new blog just for Bing.

G, I did the hat!

Bing was hung over in the last pic. G, let this be a lesson to you - beer on empty tummy is not good.

Alleen, My dog loves beer. Guiness especially. She doesn't bother any other beverages left sitting out, but a glass of Guiness she goes right for!
