A sweet little birthday girl...

Today was my niece's 1st birthday party, so the kids and I took the 1 and a half hour drive over the Rimutaka hill to Kapiti Coast, Paraparaumu to celebrate with my sister and her little family...

I took my camera, but my sissy quickly presented me with their new Olympus ohhhh-ahhhh, nice! 

This camera has an Art setting which means all the photos below were set on different Art options on the camera, meaning I didn't have to edit them once they got onto the laptop, this is how they were taken... very easy, although I must say I do like having a little bit of editing control. 

That said, I did have lots of fun snapping away... Before we see what baby Elva thought of her day I want to show you these...

This is my handsome little nephew gladly demonstrating one of his Aunty's brilliant creations... it's a cupcake in an ice cream cone... my sister literally poured the cupcake mixture into the cone, and put them into the oven... isn't she a clever cupcake... she's never done it before so the were a little messy but... what a great idea!  And the kids thought they were awesome, along with many of the adults also... next time you make cupcakes try doing it in a cone...

Now back to the party girl and her thoughts of the day...

What a great day! Everyone is fussing over little old me! YAY!
These cookies are so good mama!
Boy! My cousin is handsome!
I just love pink!
I love my big cousin
Wait a minute! What's going on here?
Mmmmm, that is gooooood!
OHHHH! It's CAKE! This has got to be a staple food right?
Thank you for a lovely day mummy and daddy, YOU's ROCK!
I'll be ready for a nap soon!

Isn't she just lovely?
Yes... she is!
Have a beautiful weekend
