Our healthy, garden variety cupcakes- peas & carrots on a bed of rich compost:
We decided to open presents intermittently throughout the day in order to get the optimum reaction each time (we don't believe in wrapping paper, by the way):
This is, by far, Mia's birthday product of choice. She can really zoom with it!
Mom was anxious to get the party started before the peas and carrots melted on the cupcakes. We sang a quick happy birthday before all of our guests had arrived (Dad is still learning how to use the video camera without making the audience nauseous):
Our other, more furry, daughter received her share of attention from Gpa R at the party. Look at that smile!
Mia's post cupcake grin heralds a slight resemblance to Izzy's. You can see her cute under bite here in all its glory!
