It's official! Our little lady is now a full year old. Like most parents, we're in awe at how fast time has went by. It's hard to imagine that the little, screaming bundle we received a year ago is the same person that was able to open her own birthday gifts and put spoon fulls of cupcake into her mouth. We had a small party for her in my mom's yard and invited just our closest Swedish relatives. It was a beautiful (somewhat cold) day with lots of sweets, presents and games.

|Digging in on her cupcake|
|Sharing is caring|
|We let her eat it however she wanted, but she insisted on using a spoon. I guess that's just how she was raised.|
|This truck from my aunt was a favorite.|

|With cousin Rita|
|I recommend giving all toddlers hammers.|
|Setting up some games.|
We had a great time and although Inara wont remember, I hope she'll look at the pictures some time and think about how happy we all were to be there on her special day.
