On Saturday we got to celebrate Miss cousin Claire’s big 1st Bday here in Iowa. Yet another reason it is good to be here for this time. Claire was a cake eating, tutu wearing, smiling champ and we all had a blast. Happy Birthday sweet cuz Claire!

Justin, Claire, & Annie

opening presents was a hit with the over 3 crowd…..
Anni was among the many leaping with excitement to “help” Claire open her gifts

Silas & Anni show the Bday girl some lovin’
Anni and her cousin Joshua…I love this pic mostly because Joshua is adorable and looks HUGE in the picture šŸ™‚ Anni’s slightly bruised eye is from a preparty tumble down the stairs that involved a lot of drama and only minimal trauma (thank you God for carpet).
