We celebrated on the patio by the mudroom with a pretty butterfly cupcake collection that Jojo won at a cake walk at Gran and Grandad's church's fall festival. Baby Love and our healthier eaters had some nourishing little cookies Emma made from organic rice cereal, fresh pears, and baby food, since we were headed off on a road trip afterwards, and we didn't want Annemarie's tummy upset on the way to San Antonio. She didn't get the candle part at all, but her siblings helped. It's hard to believe it's been a year since her birth. Shane says seeing her sweet face brings perspective and joy during hard times, and he's so right!
