Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Happy Birthday Clara

On Friday, Clara had her 1st birthday party. As you can see, she knows what the good stuff looks like. She was not sure about the taste of the frosting at first. But she quickly found the gene for loving the Cocoa bean.
She decided that the party was not crazy enough so we pulled out the bubbles, and the saying is true, "Put a couple of one year olds in the same room with bubbles, and someone is sure to loose a shirt." Ok, maybe I just made that one up, but the photo below proves it to be true. Then came the presents. While Christmas was not a memerable time for Clara (She was sick), her birthday was an epiphany that good things are given to you at least once a year. All of her friends gave her gifts that she had been begging her parents for. It was as if every time she opened (or had assistance unwrapping) a present, it was the thing that she had been dreaming about getting.

Thanks to all who came or gave Clara a present. She loved each of them and uses all of the presents. You didn't just make her night, you made every day since then, becasue she has enjoyed playing with each present, everyday.

I love the cupcakes. What are those little ball things on them?
Yeah, Colton is learning how to sit up. He isn't totally independent yet, but getting there!

"somebody's going to lose a shirt" - hilarious! I think I've heard that saying before...

I am so sad we couldn't make it to the party! Sounds like it was a ton of fun. And Clara looks like she went wild in that one picture! Clara gone wild!
