Mag-myster's Birthday Bash!

Well, its official: Maggie has been alive on this earth breathing air for her first 365 days. We had a family party to celebrate. We started off with a hot-dog dinner since hotdogs are Mag's all-time favorite food. Jennie and my mom brought yummy salads and I made Dan's favorite oven fries to go along with it (and my secret recipe fry sauce). Good stuff.

Dad, Jill, Nic, and Colette dishing up the goods.
Dan and his baby girl--she ADORES him.
Since space is kinda tight in our apartment we put out a blanket on the floor in Maggie's room for Lincoln, Asher, Colette, and Jamison to sit on and eat. A picnic room, if you will. Mostly they enjoyed playing with Clara's toys. Clara found one of Maggie's cellphones (our old ones) and held it to her ear for 10 minutes without uttering a peep. I had to confiscate the pennywhistle from Colette before the rest of us went insane from the one note wonder.
Me and Mags, she wouldn't hold still for this.

Maggie had the best time opening her presents! I wasn't sure how this would go, but she loved it. She ripped off the wrapping paper and pulled out tissue paper and opened the boxes. She got some really cute clothes, some footie pajamas that she was in desperate need of, and toys and games that her cheap parents don't buy for her. Her favorite gifts though, were the cards from Grandma and Grandpa Lambert, Grandma Williams, and Grandma and Grandpa Rasmussen. She's so lucky to have so many great grandparents! I didn't have any!

The climax of the evening was the smasher cake we got from Albertsons. They give you a free cake for your baby's first birthday. I didn't even have to buy anything else. It was totally free. Anyway, watching Maggie eat the cake was so priceless. Watch the video. I can't do it justice with words.

What a fun party, and what a beautiful little girl covered in cake! Looks like she actually got into opening the presents too, so that's fun.
I'm going to be in UT starting tuesday morning next week, I've got a work training tuesday night and all day wednesday, and then I'll be there until saturday afternoon. So when can I see you???

Oh and by the way, our dog is soooo nice. He doesn't bark at people, but he does still think he's a puppy, so he does jump. I think you'd like him after a little transition period....

Megs,

Maggie did a stellar job with her cake and she looked so cute in her outfit. I loved the hair clip. I also loved how she picked up the cake to get even more. Classic!
