Party Weekend

It was so much fun to go and stay with these guys for 3 whole days! We did a few things to help with the parties (yes, there were 2!) and caring for Helayna. Today we also celebrated her dedication at church. And we had a very good time playing with this precious little one and enjoying every bit of her personality and talents that came out. These pictures come to you via Heather and Jonathan's camera. Our camera is waiting to be downloaded - maybe tomorrow!!

There were so many great pictures taken this weekend and this is definitely one of my favourites!

The day after Helayna was born, Heather and Jonathan took a picture of her with her grandparents so we've made it an annual tradition now,I think. What a huge change in her in just one year!!

The Moll family

The amazing pumpkin cake that Heather created! Everyone, including Helayna, loved it! And it was delicious too!!

Cousins enjoying cake - they had such fun sitting beside each other and sometimes even sharing. When Helayna didn't want any more beans, she reached over and Meadow opened her mouth so she gave them to her! It was the cutest thing!

Omy and Grampa Moll gave Helayna this adorable black bear rug and she absolutely loved it!

This little puppy from Auntie Tamara barks when you play with him and howls if he's left unattended for too long!

A cute new bathing suit from Uncle Darrin and Auntie Kelsey!


  1. Wow, what a birthday party! I love that cake. It turned out so great, even if Heather used 4 1/2c. of icing sugar. I'm so glad everyone got together and could celebrate. We certainly missed being there. It looks like Helayna has lots of new goodies to play with. That bear rug is so cute. Can't wait to see more. Hugs.

  2. Looks like a fun party :)
    Lovely picture of you and your husband holding Helayna.
    That pumpkin cake is just beautiful and in the photo it almost glows.
