La Petit Boulangerie...

We celebrated Callie's first birthday with la petit boulangerie {mini french bakery}.



You're invited to come and see the fun!


A little girl turned one...


Just open the door.


She will greet you (either crawling or walking) on the floor...

And she was eager to greet her guests at the door. Do you see what I see? Lots of presents, just waiting to be opened!

After lunch, we watched the birthday girl take off!

And took lots {and lots} of pictures. She did not want to wear her birthday hat.

And was starting to get a little tired.

But she did want to open presents! Lots and lots of fun presents for the birthday girl.

She got to see both of her Grandmas...at the same time! What a lucky lady!

And then it was time for Cake!

We got two cakes. A Kowalski's chocolate cake. And a Byerly's vanilla cake.

A friend told me that Byerly's gives free birthday cakes for first birthdays {just show birth certificate when making the order}. And Kowlaski's does the same...so we got two, a chocolate and a vanilla! I thought Kowalski's was the prettiest, but the Byerly's tasted the best. Toss up!

Bon Anniversarie is Happy Birthday {in French}.
