On Feb 7th we had Opal's first birthday party. We decided to have an intimate and cozy party this time, because of weather. February is not a good month for a big outdoor event with lots of freezing babies. My parents were able to come up from CA to be here for it too so that was a plus. The theme was the letter O, because Opal was turning One. The colors were Orange and Olive green. We ate spaghetti O's, O shaped bagel sandwiches, Oranges, Oreo and Oatmeal cookies, and Onion rings. It was an Odd lunch, but it was all wiped Out when the party was Over. Amazingly we didn't even play a game! Instead everyone wrote Opal an encouraging letter which she will open on her 16th birthday. If you would like to participate in Operation Opal 2024 I know she would love it! Just write her a letter and send it to us and we'll put it in the time capsule.
