Stella's 1st Birthday Party!

Today we got together with some friends and family to celebrate Stella's first birthday. There are still a few days before she's officially one, but who's to quibble!

First, the party in still lifes:

Stella's 1st birthday cake from the nearby Filipino bakery--ube (purple yam) cake with macapuno (coconut) filling and whipped cream frosting. Delicious and not too sweet!

Stella had some initial trepidation, but quickly realized that sugar is fun!

Still enjoying cake with the rest of the guests

Mmm, cake!

The damage is done!

For those who want to feel like they were there (and have 3 1/2 minutes to spare), the video (thanks, Steph!):

Happy birthday, Stella!

Stella--and we--are so fortunate to have so many friends and family in our life to help us celebrate the end of this first year! Thanks to all who could make it such a great day!!
