Leap celebration

We had a nice time celebrating Naomi's (honorary) birthday. I thought it would be cute to have a bit of a frog theme to acknowledge that she's a LEAP baby!

Per our tradition, we had a special breakfast in the birthday girl's room. Thanks to a visit the day before from my blog friend, Leah, we had delicious donut holes. You should've seen Naomi's face when she tasted her first bite!
We had a casual supper in the evening. Our guests were Eric's brother and his girlfriend, and the college  student we sponsor, Cristina. A friend graciously provided us with all the fun pink first birthday decorations!

After the kids were in bed, Eric and I read through our CaringBridge journal entries from last year, along with the many comments that had been posted by family and friends. I think it is so important to pause to remember and reflect. We are so grateful for God's hand of protection on both Naomi and me. It was indeed a day of celebration!
