Reno's 1st Birthday.

Vanilla Cupcakes w. Vanilla Buttercream

On Sunday, 8.31.08 we celebrated Reno's birthday! I was so happy to have her party on her actual birthday. We had about 20-25 people in our apartment, lots of food and lots of fun.

We had cupcakes w. special Reno decorations that I made with some help from my sister, Chi and friend Rachele.

I didn't get pictures of the food but amongst all the stuff I had some VwaV Seitan and Herb Stuffed Mushrooms and V'con's black bean burger, mini style! I highly recommend making the the burgers into mini's for a party. They were so fun looking and delicous.

(1 year)

She got lots of gifts.

Reno (1 year)

Again lots of gifts. Mostly toys.

Shark cutout
made by my friend Rachele

She also had a busty girl pushing a great white shark to the top of the ocean. You can't see it in this picture but the girl had on red socks. That's my friend Todd taking his turn in the cutout.

I didn't get to take lots of picture. There might be a total of 8 of them on my Flickr account which you can access from the side bar of this site. When my parents come back from Cyprus in 2 weeks I should be adding more to Flickr.

And if anyone out there is cares besides me and VeggieGirl America's Next Top Model starts tonight. It's sure to be horrible but we love it! It also means the start up of Wednesday Night Potlucks at my sisters so that my friend and I can watch it together and eat good food. Tonights theme is Chinese food. I'm bringing pot stickers. I hope someone brings scallion pancakes.

Reno is so adorable! It looks like she really enjoyed her birthday part, which is what really matters :) Also, those cupcakes look delicious and I love the special little flag decorations- very cute.

I LOVE ANTM! It's definitely my guilty pleasure- I can't wait for the premiere tonight!

Neat cupcakes! The mini black bean burgers sound great! We just made some special full sized ones tonight! You just can't go wrong with black beans. I love the cut-out picture your friend made! Me and my brother tried to be cool 15 years ago by drawing ourselves little elf bodies on some cardboard and singing Xmas songs to our grandparents.
