Allison Mae is One!

We celebrated Allison's birthday today with our family and the traditional first birthday Biedebach table. We are so blessed to have her in our family. She is a delight to us all.

When Brian's dad turned one in 1933, his parents grabbed a table from the house and sat him on it with his birthday cake. When Brian and his siblings each had their first birthdays the same table was brought out. When Ami was about to turn one Brian asked his dad if we could have the table sent to Africa. Grandpa Mark didn't want to part with his heirloom and so he paid to have a replica made in SA. Bradley had his first birthday in CA and so he sat on the original:)

She didn't even want any. She had eaten lunch and I imagine her tum was full!
