Josephine's birthday celebrations lasted three days and were covered in a thick layer of snow.
We spent the big day just us three frolicking outside, enjoying Ben's day off work and spoiling the birthday girl. Phiney was a little trepidatious after face-planting the snow (understandably!) but when her hand was being held she gazed at her new landscape in wonder.
On Saturday, despite the snow, so many of our beautiful friends and family trekked to Josephine's party to enjoy a game of pass the parcel (a huge success with a bunch of one year olds!) and a slice of Ben's simply fantastic castle cake. I mean seriously, how cool is that?! Phiney had the best time, running around in her vintage party dress and a gorgeous cardigan of my Mum's creation, with her little buddies.
Sunday we hit the park for one last jaunt in the white stuff before it turned to slush where Josephine found her snow legs, stomping away in her wellies and new waterproof dungarees.
Those three days were awesome, and days we'll always remember. Our baby girl is one, and what an amazing creature she is.
