Kira's Birthday Party

I know it was almost 2 weeks ago, but things have been a little busy here with me working full-time!
Kira's party was on a Tuesday night with friends and family. We had a great time and Kira loved having everyone there. Thanks everyone for coming!

A ride from Gpop Kenny
Our noodle-flower theme... I just cut up the beveled noodles and whala- flowers!
We had lots and lots of noodle-flowers in the pool. Kevin had more fun than any of the kids playing with them

Lighting the candle...
She was interested in the fire...
Smiling while we sang to her
Nope... she wouldn't blow it out. We've been working for about a month on blowing and she's sooo good at it. However, I never had her blow out something... so when she saw the fire and I said "blow", she was completly distracted! :) Good thing we had lots of kid helpers!

Getting ready to open all the presents. Thank you everyone!
We made Kira a new blanket for her bed. It was cuddly and warm on the nice, cool night.

Thanks Julia and AJ for the new doll. It's Kira's 1st real dolly!

Birthday Peek a Boo

This was my favorite part of the birthday party...
While opening presents Kira started playing peek-a-boo with the blanket. She thought she was soo funny playing with everyone. I was laughing so hard.

Kira was getting a kick out of herself!
Where's Kira?
I love that you can see her little fingers holding the blanket sides. Too cute.
