She started her big day off by playing in the sand, which is by far her most favorite thing in the world to do ...and she has traveled around the world trying many fun things! My little one year old, who started off in Denmark, has been to Germany, Sweden, Italy, United States, and Canada!
All her cousins made her sandcastles that she was allowed to destroy. They made big piles of sand and let her flatten them. She even had her legs and feet buried in sand and she thought this was hilarious! She LOVES the sand and mud. :)
My little Andrea is almost walking. She can stand as long as she feels like, but just won't lift up a foot until she grabs hold of something. She did raise a foot up just a little and take a half step once. :) Does that count? I hear four steps is the official number of steps required for a walker. :) Poozle walks pretty well just holding onto one hand now. She still has another week to take her first steps in Canada. I know Gramma here is urging her on.Here is her giant party. All her Canadian friends were there!
...and here is her wonderful cake made my her wonderful mommy...! It is "yummy sand"! ...and a little bowl of milk to splash in! She LOVED it!! It even had chive "grass"!
I guess I made more than just one cake because we had many mouths to feed. :) Oh, and see that boring black circle cake? It's a "world famous" tort cake from some "world famous" hotel in Austria. My cupcakes were WAY better. I don't even know what a tort is, but it wasn't very yummy. It was like a dry cake. The hotel was called Hotel Sacher. in case you want to buy an overpriced, yucky cake. :) The box was pretty.
SO. That was my little girls day. Thanks to Auntie Red and Uncle Greg and to Auntie Sandra and Uncle Steve for hauling all their kids up to the cottage to help celebrate Andrea's birthday. TAK. Oh, and thanks to Gramma and Papa for smiling while 20 people ran through their house. :)
