a few weeks ago we celebrated matteo's birthday.
(banner by my cousin at heartfelt banners.)
the bigs played "pin the donkey" as nicolai called it.
gifts were kept simple, lots of books, some clothes, and this wooden switchback race track.
dessert was just like nicolai's first birthday: vegan chocolate cupcakes with (not so vegan) marshmallow fluff and colorful sprinkles.
he enjoyed every bite and family guests jumped right in getting matteo and the living room rug cleaned up before i even noticed.
