One-Year Birthday Celebration

Our great niece, Elise, turned 1 year old in December.  On Sunday, December 30, we celebrated Elise’s birthday with family and friends.  The birthday party was held at my brother’s house.

We left Warren around 11 am and arrived in Kittanning, PA around 1:30 pm.  We checked into Quality Inn, where we spent the night, and left for Jim and Judy’s house shortly before 2:00 pm.  We made a hotel reservation, even though we could have made it back home the same day, because weather conditions are always uncertain in the winter time.  Also, staying overnight gave us more time to spend with my family.

We spent the next 5 hours eating sloppy joes, potato salad and cake; chatting and watching Elise open gifts.

Here are a few photographs from Elise’s birthday party.

Elise liked the rocking horse for a little while.

It was a good party.  I am happy that we decided to spend the night, rather than go home that night.  I enjoyed the extra time with my family.

    What a beautiful child, those eyes, wow! i think the horse will grow on Elise in time and she’ll love riding it.
