Faith turned sixteen this weekend! We had a fun family party for her on Sunday night.
Nature table transformed into birthday table. I made the crown and the cake topper last year.
Fresh bouquet from the cutting garden for her birthday table. I'm loving those bachelor buttons.
Cookies--the traditional number cookies with some woodland creatures thrown in. We bought the animal cookie cutters on our recent Ikea trip. They are so great--exactly my taste: moose, fox, hedgehog, snail, bear cub, and squirrel. So good!
Dieter made a special cookie for Faith. "With love for Faithy on her birthday," he said.
A calm moment before the party. Love those brief lulls.
Faith with her friend Kaylyn, who designed and sewed the dress Faith is wearing. My brother in the background, playing field hockey with the little kids.
Rainer taking a turn hitting the dino pinata.
Look at all that loot!
The birthday girl with her presents. I love her nails here.
The cake. My mom crushes fresh raspberries into the frosting. Faithy's favorite.
Happy birthday Faith! You are a sweet and smart girl, loving big sister, and a fabulous daughter. Have a great year!
