I must confess, I was hoping that Aubrey would make more of a mess with her cake, but I am realizing more and more what a girly girl she is. Not only does she love cell phones, jewelry, clothes (strange, but she really does have a fetish for clothes), and makeup (she loves to sit in front of the mirror with my makeup brushes and "put it on"), but she loves to take baths and apparantly hates getting her hands messy. The first video is Aubrey at her first attempt at her cake. Even with coaxing from mommy, she still refused to dig in...until we gave her a fork (video 2) and then she started to eat it. We have quite the little girl on our hands, but what a sweetheart!

Let me explain. I am a stay at home mom with no car. I have nothing but time on my hands while Aubrey is sleeping so I decided to have a little fun with her birthday cake. I am not the artist in my family so you will notice many imperfections with the cake (i.e. crooked door and flowers...etc.), but I had a lot of fun making it and it tasted yummy (what birthday cake doesn't?)! Then I realized we probably wouldn't have enough cake for all the guests so I made another cake (way too much free time), this one was a bathtub. Needless to say, the cakes took a back seat to the birthday girl, but that's the way it should be.
The Gabester pushing the baby in her stroller!
We had a slight princess theme at the party (I found this Cinderella Halloween costume for a great deal and just had to buy it), so Aubrey got to dress up in her pretty costume. I'm hopeless I know, but she was just so darn cute in it :)!
This was just the cutest picture I've ever seen, thanks to Ana Julia! What a sweetheart! Aubrey is blessed with so many wonderful friends!
This is the part of the pictures where we take a minute to thank so many wonderful friends for coming and supporting Aubrey! Thanks everyone...you really are the greatest!
The Grawrocks (minus Matt who was at practice).
The Eldredge Family
Good old Jordan (he's single ladies :)
Marian and Ben Griffin
Last, but certainly not least, Nicki and Amber Hadfield with their beautiful girls Zara and Ana Julia (Marc and Matt couldn't make it)!
We have all been blessed with such wonderful friends here in Buena Vista!

Aubrey managed to sneak into Uncle Charlie's bag and took out his water bottle. She's such a determined little girl -- when she wants something, she just takes it (we're working on the sharing thing but she's taking her time grasping that concept).
Once she had enough water she kept digging through his bag to try and find somethig else worth while, but only managed to find some dirty shin guards. Better luck next time Aubrey!

Those are Aubrey's handprints that we traced and cut out to put on the sign! She is growing so much, and so quickly!

Ok, so she's only starting to walk, but she's picked it up fast! She will take up to 10+ steps at at time (when she's not tired), and is growing so fast! She is so much fun and I just love getting to be at home with her all day and just watching her as she learns new things. I can't believe that she is going to be 1 year old in less than two weeks! Where does the time go?! It's hard to think that I can love another baby as much as I do her, but I know that when this little one comes it will just happen (or so I hear)! We find out the sex of baby #2 on March 4 and will keep everyone updated. Here is a video of her walking the other day...she's such a riot!
