Kalista's 1st Birthday - Take One

We celebrated Kalista's 1st birthday, with David's side of the family, while in Bakersfield for Thanksgiving. I am thinking a lot of her birthdays will be celebrated in this fashion since it falls around Turkey Day (November 30th, to be exact).
I ordered the most scrumptious cake from a bakery called Sweet Surrender. And I am not the only one who thinks this cake is divine...Giada even thinks so! I was watching The Best Thing I Ever Ate (episode 'Crazy Good') on Food Network and Giada was raving about The Matterhorn cake. Lucky for me this bakery was in Bakersfield and a favorite of all the Halls.

The girls out number Daddy : )

Our happy little girl!
Happy Birthday to me!
Frosting is the best!
Didn't quite know what to do with this sweet, decadent pleasure.
 Such a Princess...Kalista preferred her cake fed
by hand rather than getting messy.
We love you, Kalista!
(No matter what the kids love the ribbon!)


  1. Happy Birthday Kalista!
    And... I just saw Giada raving about that cake! Looks yummy!
