We had Addie's 1st birthday party yesterday, and everything went even better than I could have imagined. Whew! There were about 30 people there, including a smattering of kids, and everyone had a great time. The weather held out, wasn't too sunny which was great because there isn't a lot of shade in our backyard, and I'm pretty sure everyone got enough to eat : )
Addie was a true birthday princess - she loved all the attention she got from her family and friends, and came away with some really fun presents. I don't think I held her for more than 5 minutes during the whole party...always arms to hold her or hands to help her walk up and down the driveway, or around the tree in the backyard. We had a blast, and I'm so glad we did a big party for her. I can say that now of course because it's all done. If you had asked me Friday night around 9:30 pm how good of an idea I thought it was we were doing a party...while Adam and I were trying to decorate 40+ cupcakes...well, let's just say I may have given you a different answer : )
Anyway, here are a few pics from the party. I have to make this short and sweet because daycare starts tomorrow and I have some paperwork to finish. Yikes. Daycare. Give me strength...
Can I have another one, please?
The cupcakes...45 butterfly cupcakes. It took a while : )
