The Birthday and the Ball

The big "1" cake
"That was fun! I'm ready for a bath...and a shave!"
Full-body shot. I obviously need to work on my super-model stance!
I'm about 2 weeks tardy, but here are the much-anticipated events. We had such a fun weekend! I can't believe how quickly Finn's first year flew by! He's such a good little boy and we're so grateful to have him in our family. He likes pushing around cars (thus, the cake) and he was so cute to watch eat his cake. He started out cautiously, but soon put the pedal to the metal! He had whole rocks (aka chocolate candy rocks) in his diaper the next day! As soon as we got Finn cleaned up, it was time for Brad and I to get ourselves cleaned up and ready for the fancy Christmas gala that his school put on. It was in downtown Portland at a place called The Crystal Ballroom and there was a nice dinner and a live band and tons of dancing. The dance floor was actually spring-loaded so it really got you swingin'! I can't remember the last time we had so much fun--it was great! Thanks to my mom for coming to celebrate and babysit.

Maylin, I must agree with the other two ladies in saying that you look gorgeous! I love your shiny silver blouse. I also love the #1 cake. Where did you find the chocolate rocks? I haven't seen those for a long time. Thanks for sharing your life with us. =)
