We began the month celebrating this precious girl's birthday. I got up that morning feeling so blessed and thankful, considering what all happened surrounding her birth. (You can read about that here).
I knew I wanted to do a winter wonderland theme for her birthday, because, well, I figure I should do what I want while she can't tell me what we are doing! I really didn't do that much, though, due to the fact that time really ran out on me!

|The hit of the party.....the hot chocolate bar!|
The hot chocolate bar was definitely a hit. We had dark and white hot cocoa. The white cocoa I made by mixing six cups of whole milk, two cups of heavy cream, and a package of white chocolate chips. I heated on the stove until the chips melted, and it was wonderful! On the bar I had chocolate dipped candy canes, snowman marshmallows, Andes peppermint chips, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and whipped cream!
|The birthday girl! She hates headbands on her head these days!|
She was not really into smashing her cake. Right after she was born my aunt described her as dainty, that's how I would describe her treatment of the smash cake. In fact, I don't even think she got a really good bite of it. She just wasn't interested.
This is probably the best pic of all four of us in a while!
