Best Shot Monday - More Celebrations!

A very busy weekend has left us exhausted and partied out! I volunteered to help with VBS last week - Oh. My. Gosh. That was beyond exhausting! Then on Saturday we had a first birthday party to go to, a carnival to celebrate the finish of VBS and then I attended church that evening.

On Sunday, I volunteered in Harrison's classroom for childcare at church and afterward we came home and BOTH took well-needed naps!

So my best shot is of the birthday girl - she turned one year old. Isn't she a cutie?

She sure is enjoying her chocolate cupcakes!

Her mommy made ALL these wonderful (and yummy) cupcakes for the party.

When the Happy Birthday singing was finished and he was given the go-ahead, Harrison happily charged right into a chocolate cupcake with Oreo cookies on top.

But once he was past the frosting and the Oreos, he started eying the pretty sunflower cupcakes.

And before I could stop him, he leaned over and bit a pretty little yellow pedal right off a cupcake! [I really wasn't wanting to eat a cupcake - especially if it wasn't chocolate - which the sunflower ones were not.]

I was left to do the "mop-up" work... it's a tough job but somebody has to eat them!

They sure were tasty!!


See more of this week's best shots over at Tracey's, she's back from vacation!

A cute little birthday girl, indeed. Love the shots of H munching on the cupcakes. Reminds me of Lauren. She eats the frosting and leaves most of the cake. :-)

I have to admit that the battery died on the Rebel (I knew it would) and I pulled out the point and shoot. The only picture from the "fancy" camera is of the cupcakes in the stand!
