We had Annaliese's big 1st birthday party back in Elkader today with lots of family and friends. We had a great time visiting with our family and friends we don't get to see very often. Annaliese was pretty low-key and clingy; she went back on antibiotics on Wednesday and has a cold for two weeks, so she's still not quite herself.
The food was delicious. We had BBQ beef sandwiches, turkey dressing sandwiches, baked beans, potatoes, chips, veggie tray, fruit tray, and applesauce. Oh, and there was dessert of course.
Oh, and my goodness, the presents. She got spoiled. So many cute clothes for the summer, baby dolls to love, books to read, a chair to sit in, a water table to play in, a wagon to ride in, and money to put in the bank. Thanks to all for her gifts.
The kids all went for a ride in the wagon Annaliese got. Ian loved it and Grandpa Dave made many a lap around the room pulling Ian. Ian would sometimes pull Owen or Annaliese in it as well. During one extended trip, Owen fell asleep.
