Today my mom hosted a birthday party for Philip. The purpose of the event was two-fold. While we celebrated Philip’s first birthday, it was also an opportunity to visit with her two sisters who live out of state. In today’s picture, we are singing “Happy Birthday” to Philip. He had his own small, round cake decorated with the number 1 and with one candle in it. His new best friend, cousin Hannah, is in front of him while my cousin, aunt and brother stand in the doorway.
