My First Birthday!

Hello Everyone!

Guess What?  I just celebrated my first birthday on June 11, 1999!  What a joyous and eventful day it was for me and my friends and family.  Some really good friends of ours made me a beautiful cookie bouquet with balloon shaped cookies to give to everyone.  My mom got me a special little bitty birthday cake so I could eat some icing.  We had punch to drink...yum!

Our porch was decorated with lots and lots of balloons and at 5:20 p.m. I turned a whole bunch of them loose to fly up in the air because that was the time I was born a year ago!

We had open house from 4-7 p.m. so folks came to see me during those hours.  I got lots of neat gifts.  I just sat in my chair in my pretty birthday dress that my great-grandmothers gave me, and enjoyed opening my gifts (with the help of mommy).

My granddaddy took lots of pictures & videos.  Some of the pictures are here for you to see.

Thank you to all the folks who sent me "Happy Birthday" greetings!!  And thank you most of all "Jesus" for giving me one year of life!!
