Today (stateside 10.09) is our niece's 1st birthday.  We're pretty bummed out that we're missing it, so we made this little banner on our divider window for her out of origami paper.

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday, dear Audrey,
Haaappy Biiirrthday to you!!

This post is solely dedicated to sending birthday thoughts her way, so I'll write about our day and other things tomorrow.


  1. Thank you so much! If Audrey wasn't crashed out in her crib right now, I'd show it to her. We will have to wait until she wakes up!

    I could use your baking skills today Casey! I am making a ton of stuff for both my mom's house and Gramma's. I wanted to make a carrot cake for Audrey to go with her bunny theme. So many of them had raisins and nuts in the recipe and I don't quite know if you can take that out and have the cake still hold together. Instead, I am playing it safe and going with a pumpkin spice cake and chocolate with buttercream.

    Rob is helping to sell my mom's boat and has a potential buyer. He told the guy that we would meet him at 5 today, so I have less time than I had planned. Yikes! Wish me luck!

    I hope we get to talk to you guys this weekend, especially at Gramma's so we can skype during the party! I wrapped the gift you guys got Audrey (very cute by the way!) and didn't let anyone else see what it is. :)

    Well, I'm off to go destroy the kitchen now. Love you guys!

  2. Very cute, and with origami paper no less! Danielle is having fun baking the cakes. We will skype you at 4pm our time on Sunday, (your monday). Love you
