The morning of her birthday, snow began to fall at our house - which is about 20 minutes south of Maureen's house. Rachel was coming up to carpool with me and Ben, and when we got on the road, the snow was only falling lightly.
As we got closer and closer to her house, the snow seemed to be falling harder and harder. The ground was covered with it!
Maureen had decorated her house beautifully for the party, and had amazing food and beverages set out for us all to enjoy. (I of course failed to take pictures of both - but I will try to steal some later and post here). Ben even got his first party gift bag!
Due to the fact that I don't have 4-wheel drive, we were only able to stay an hour and half or so before we made the scary drive home.
I was especially sad to miss Maeve eating her first birthday cake. It was fun to see everyone and to introduce Maeve to Ben! She seemed to be very interested in the "baby" :)
Here is a blurry picture of Maeve, Maureen's dad and Ben.
Adorable owl cookie!
