Faith's 1st birthday party: Cake, presents, and confetti

We started off the party by singing Happy Birthday to Faith.
And let her blow out her candle.
We've been practicing the blowing.
Faith clapped her hands after we sang to her and finally let her dig into the dessert!
Grace helped feed Faith her bee.
Faith thought it was "bee-licious!"
And buzzed her bee around in the air for another bite.
Then it was time to open presents.  Doesn't her little outfit look darling on her?
Grace helped Faith with her presents.
We made quite the mess!
Faith got her very first baby doll.  And she loves it!
And Faith walked around looking for more presents to open.
We gave her this little Queen Bee pull toy.  It's one of her favorites.  She's always liked Grace's "puppy friend" but Grace won't ever let her play with it.
Then it was time for the pinata.
After many tries we finally found the right pull string and out popped the confetti, glowsticks, and such.
I really have a mild obsession with confetti.  I think I may have enjoyed it more than either of my girls.
But the glowsticks were a definite hit.
Both Faith and Grace wore them all over the house.
And played with them for days.
Don't they look so sweet together?  There's just something about cute little bums in ruffled tutus that melts my heart.
Then Grace was kind enough to clean up the mess.  She's a little obsessive about keeping things clean.  Faith is the exact opposite.  Oftentimes Faith will go behind Grace making a big mess out of whatever Grace has just cleaned up.  But this time Queenie held onto Faith to make it easier for Grace to vacuum.
