Birthday party

Saturday was Lila's birthday party, and despite a soggy morning, the rain did clear away and didn't totally ruin the egg hunt I had planned. I only say "totally" because it did bring with it some pretty nasty humidity, and the kiddos weren't able to play outside as much as I had wanted.

The menu: French toast casserole, baked peaches, sausage balls, strawberry spring salad with candied pecans and vanilla vinaigrette, ham and cheese nibbles, and assorted fruit and granola with orange honey yogurt. We also had almond tea and various beverages outside.

Lookin' good, Jen! B is growing!
I love that last pic of TJ & Lila. Also, did TJ take the post-hunting pic? Haha :)
Niece Addie has the teapot. It's pretty fun!
What a pretty new dress!

It looks like the party was a great! I wish I could have been there. The menu sounds fab...how did the ham biscuits turn out?
