Happy Belated Birthday Hadassah!

Here are some pictures from Hadassah's first birthday party! What a gift it was to be able to celebrate this special occasion with our daughter at home and in our arms. Through the pink smoke of dolls, clothes, books, toys, and hair accessories:), we knew the greatest gift given to our daughter is the love of her family. It makes me think of how our God gives gifts to His children. He gives extravagantly and without condition. But, I pray I never forget as I enjoy His gifts that the greatest gift He gives us is His unconditional love and that's really all I need. Though everything else fall away, love is an eternal gift that lives in the hearts of God's children.
"So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love." 
1 Corinthians 13:13
We were able to cut the last blooms of the season from our myrtle tree.
I'm so excited for this one's birthday in November. He's such an awesome big brother!
Lots of family was able to come and celebrate.
The kids had their own little table for cupcake decorating and EATING!
This birthday girl was not a fan of her first taste of cake. Poor thing was actually gagging. I'm sure this will change at some point during her childhood when she discovers the pure fun and bliss of a sugar high!
