Happy Birthday Griffin!!!

Happy Birthday, Griffin! You just turned One! We had an excellent day - all your favourite people came over to see you. You woke up especially early, just as if you knew the celebrations were coming, and you wanted to get started right away.

You played and played. Ella and Jonah and Chloe came over to try out all your new toys. It was a little cold, but we really enjoyed the new deck.

Everyone ate some cake - applesauce spice cake with strawberry lavender jam and cream cheese icing. Mommy didn't have any food colouring, so we used some lime Koolaid I bought to try dying felt - it was yummy and kind of tart.

Your favourite part was the strawberries, but you tucked in pretty good. All in all, it was a great little day.

The last year has been totally amazing, and it has been our joy and privilege to spend it with you, Griffin. We sure love you!

Belated birthday wishes to little Griffin - I know it's a cliché but time really does fly, as i'm sure you know.
Strawberry and lavendar jam sounds gorgeous!
