Sophia Turns One!
I hope you remember our shipping department extroirdinaire, Christina, had her baby a year ago. We were all so excited, and have gotten to know our sweet Sophia over the past year. You've probably heard her laughing or shrieking in the background when you call--she's lucky to be able to come to work with her mom!
We held a small lunch party for Sophia's first birthday. Christina's turkey-spinach meatloaf, rolls, and salad filled us all up but we had to save room for dessert. Winslow baked a vanilla cake with marshmallow frosting, and it was so high that it didn't fit under the dome of the cake plate!
Christina made a ribbon banner that she is going to add to each year. She asked all of us for colorful ribbon scraps (Jenna brought in a big bag!) and strung them together, with a flower made from Sophia's birth announcement in the center. It's going to be used every year, with new ribbons and photos added. Isn't that a great idea? I just don't know where she finds the time for such endeavors, though!
Sophia and her daddy blew out the candle on the impressive cake, and then she dug into her cake and ice cream with abandon. She loved it! But when she tried to put the entire scoop of ice cream in her mouth at once, she had such a surprised look on her face at how cold it was!
We love having Christina and Sophia here in the office, and thank you for your continued support of our family business. It is wonderful to be able to be family-friendly.
Best wishes to you and yours for the month of May!
