Cille's 1st Birthday Luau, Part 3 (Cake and Ice Cream Time!)

In keeping with the luau theme, Cille's cake featured Mickey and Minnie surfing...
At this point in the festivities, Cille had tired of her wet bathing suit and slipped into something a little more comfortable...
Frequent readers of the blog will realize that this is actually a pretty decent family photo...

This may be my favorite picture of the day!  We're all helping her blow out the candle...
Stella really enjoyed the cake icing.  In large quantities...
There were many kids who were very eager to dig into the cake...
But first we had to take some pictures!
Aunt Sarah took this shot of the group getting ready to sing "Happy Birthday."  I am so glad that she did because when I look at this picture I see so much love!  Everyone you see is super special to our family in one way or another.  Cille is so lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful friends and family members!
Speaking of special people, we also had a couple of new friends at the party.  Meet Andy and Amy, Ardoin Law Firm's newest law clerk and his sweet girlfriend.  This will probably be the only 1 year old birthday party Andy will have to attend in his legal career.  I also just realized while typing this that the acronym for Damon's firm is ALF.  I loved that show...
Two tropical beauties...
I did not realize that John had worn the grass skirt until I saw this picture, so I thought it should definitely be on the internet...
Cille and Uncle Chad sneaked away from the party to play in Stella's room...
And later we opened a couple of presents...
With some help from Molly Jane...
