her first...

Saturday we celebrated our Little L turning one!

She had an adorable "smash" cake and, uh...

...and that is just what she did...

...she smashed it!!


And invited Little E to join her!

Among her gifts were a new "ride"...

and her own bean bag chair...
(big brother got one for Christmas and she
has been insisting that he share it!)

Her guest included our dear "adopted"
who have always shared in our "big" days!

Here she is with her Great-Nanny
 on her mom's sideand her Papa, her mom's dad.
 Her Nana was busy taking pictures

Her uncle, aunt and her two cousins
  from Tenn came for the big event.
Little E brought her mom and dad, too,
but somehow, oops!, they missed being in a picture!  

Little L is a precious gift to our family.
 We (and many others) prayed her here
 and we are so grateful that she is 
healthy and happy!
 It was a joy to have all our family
 and our DIL's family here to celebrate!
Happy Birthday, Little L!
We love you very much
and look forward to watching you grow!
