weekend bits


we traveled to cincinnati this weekend for a weekend full of parties. first up on saturday was the first birthday of our little eleanor faye. we had a lovely day with friends and family and gifts galore. eleanor loved every minute of it...except the cake! i couldn't believe it myself and actually wondered if in fact she is my daughter but she just wasn't interested. she did however love the singing of "happy birthday" and the many times it was sung to her. i guess she didn't want her birthday to end because she stayed awake until 4am!

sunday was day two and party number two, a baby shower for my dear friend emily. we had a nice brunch and her soon to be son was gifted many books from the lewis carroll shelf award winners.

the only major disaster was that i realised all to late that our camera battery was dead and the charger back in holland, michigan. so we had to rely on our phones to capture some of the special moments. hopefully eleanor won't hold it against me.

with all the decorating and cooking and baking and celebrating i am ready for a nap but it was such a great weekend and i love hosting parties for the people i love.
