A Perfect Birthday Party

The above is maybe my favorite picture of the even one hundred I took.  And of course that's Josie's hand  reaching for the first slice-- she knows how good the icing tastes. The rest of the pictures are in more or less chronological order.

It was a fine day. Claui and her folks worked like mad,  providing rainbow themed dรฉcor, rainbow veggies with hummus, rainbow chips, a rainbow of fruits on skewers, and rainbow veggie pizza.

Josie had a great time. She was perfectly at ease as more and more people arrived, enjoyed having Happy Birthday sung to her, and had a fine time interacting with the other kids. And opening presents. And eating pizza and fruit and cake.

It was a lovely gathering of all ages--friends and family and neighbors.  

And the cake was a hit.

The birthday girl looks gorgeous in her rainbow dress! What a wonderful birthday her family gave her. She’s a lucky girl, and of course deserves it all.

You guys really know how to throw a party! I had fun just looking at the pictures. You outdid yourself with the gorgeous rainbow cake. You just might become the "go to" person for baking the cakes. So glad even the weather cooperated.

Love Josie's dress, everything looks great and what looks the best is seeing everyone visiting together, talking, breaking bread and enjoying the children, and your cake looks delightful. "Bake it and they will come" ❤️๐Ÿ‘ถ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‚❤️
