And a special shout-out to our dear friends, Pat & Lindsay for sharing their beautiful backyard for the big event. Thanks, guys!
Below are just a "few" of my fave pics from the party. For more party greatness in all it's glory, check out the party pics at www.theatwoods.smugmug.com under the heading "Avy's 1st Birthday Party!"...obviously.

It's usually the kids I catch eating only the frosting off the cupcakes...however, since Kaari goes gluten-free, we'll let it slide this one time :)
Avy has this fettish for kitty cats. She sleeps with / attacks nasty-smelly cat every night before, during, and after sleep. Its original color is white, but with all the chewing, dragging around the house, sucking, and feeding she does to the cat, it's now a lovely shade of gray-brown. We wash Kitty every other day. Her other kitty cat love is her pink kitty purse, compliments of Aunt Jodi, and she carries that thing with her everywhere as well. The face on the purse was my inspiration for the cake. It turned out looking surprisingly similar.
She didn't want to dig in, but was happy to give Kitty Cake a kiss.
