And The Award Goes To...

Today seems like as good a day as any to dole out a couple of awards from the weekend. 

First, the Happiest Birthday Girl Award goes to Miss Ellie, in whose presence we were honored to be for her very, very first birthday ever!

Best Sporting of a Hat Befitting the Daughters of a Particular Duchess of York Award
(with such elegance and grace, Ellie played the birthday girl so beautifully!)

Happiest Cupcake-Eating Award

Best Blue Beauty Spot Award

Best Premature Blossoms on a Perfect Spring Day Award

Saddest, Most Tired, Overwhelmed Girl Award  Believe it or not, these photos actually came first in the chronology of events.  Samantha fell asleep in the car on the way to the party, not 5 minutes after we left our house.

She woke up when we arrived, and was not happy.  Actually, it took the better part of an hour to warm her up to all things festive, but thankfully once she was warm, she was warm!!  She had a ball, thanks in part to the little lovelies in the photo below...

Most Beautiful Cake Pops I've Ever Seen Award (okay, so I've never had a cake pop before, but dang, these were awesome!  Megan, fess up, 'k?  These had crack in them, right?)

Most Post-Cake Chilliciousness Award

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Thank you!!!!

And no crack in the cake pops, just cake, frosting, and candy coating shells.... but I should check the ingredients on those?

So glad you guys could join us! And equally shocked that the hat stayed ON!

oh my gosh. What a beautiful montage of colors and moods. Sleepy, festive, fussy, and yummy. I enjoy glimpses of your little princesses day. Both the highs and the lows. (and all the in betweens!) Looking forward to her party.

I've seen a lot about cake pops recently, but never had one.

Love that picture of her sleeping in the car! Man, she was OUT!
