1st Birthday Party

"Stare into my eyes. Now give me more cake!"

We celebrated Diego's first birthday this weekend with family and friends - and cake.

Diego was surprisingly timid about the cake at first (not so timid about the candle flame, though).  But after a few exploratory pokes, he dove right in.

"What, is something on my face?"

"Did I get it?"

I used this recipe from Smitten Kitchen.  
(But then I ran out of time and energy, so I used store-bought frosting - 
chocolate in the middle, vanilla on the outside.)

Since Diego was born in a snowstorm, we decorated the party room with snowflakes and streamers.

They might have hung a little low.

And what snowstorm is complete without an abominable snowman?
