Our little baby princess is one year old! What a fun year it was. We had a fun day celebrating too. We went to Happy Hollow (pictures here), carved pumpkins, ate cupcakes and opened presents (more pictures here). True to her normal MO, Kate was eager about the cupcake, but not too jazzed about getting her fingers messy. She insisted on eating with a fork, but as soon as she got her first bite of frosting she immediately forgot about all of her reluctance to get dirty and just dug in. The kids loved opening and playing with Kate’s presents. Nicky loved all of Kate’s presents, with his favorites being the princess castle and the grocery store register. He got a little creative playing with the two side by side and started “buying girls” [princesses from the castle] at the grocery store. Luckily he quickly adjusted that to “the girls are buying food”. Much better. Phew.
