Hannah's Birthday

Sweet Hannah turned one on Thursday! Cora's first birthday involved a huge party with all our friends, visiting grandparents, a cookout, balloons, and lots of presents. Hannah is the stereotypical second-born. She got a nice family dinner, a birthday cake celebration with our close family friends Dana, Justin and Clay, skyped-in grandparents, and no presents except a handmade butterfly card from Cora, which actually turned out to be quite exciting for her. However, another perk of being second-born: there was a lot more sugar in this birthday cake than my super-healthy carrot cake for Cora. Hannah loves her food, and she gobbled this!
