Turning One!

We have celebrated our little hearts out this weekend and what a glorious weekend to do so - the weather has been GORGEOUS!! Not a cloud in the sky since Friday - thank you Lord! Friday was Catherine Ellis's actual birthday so David and I picked her up from school and headed to the park for a little while - she loved it!

Saturday we had Catherine Ellis's first birthday party at Triangle Park in Forest Park from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and it could not have been a prettier day! We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends who love our child - thanks to all that came out to celebrate her big day! It was a wonderful time and we cherish the times of our life when we get to spend it with those we love. (And bear with me, remember this is my baby book of sorts, so there are TONS of pictures!)

Here's a little pre-party fun:

The birthday girl

Who is that cutie underneath the hat?

Wyatt & Catherine Ellis meeting for the first time - she wanted to make sure he saw her waving!

Madeline, Mommy and Catherine Ellis

3 beauties - Madeline, Catherine Ellis and Caroline (I went to AU with their Mommies)

Aunt Coco, Catherine Ellis, and Anna

The set-up:

The cakes

The invite

Dessert table

Food and gift tables

Party time:

The tunnel was a big hit - 6 feet of tunnel fun

Still going...

Sweet Audrey came to visit and I loved hugging on her

Me and Mommy - this is the "I've had no nap today" face we got for most of the party

Next came the time to sing Happy Birthday to our sweet girl and let her smash her cake - she had a good time doing this and ended up putting on a good show for everyone! Who needs a nap to have fun?? Not our girl:

Seriously Mom, do I have to wear this hat?

Hum, looks tasty...

Believe I'll have some...

Yay! It's yummie!

Nope, changed my mind

There is enough for everyone...

Sharing with my Uncle Drew since we share the same birthday...

And I think he's funny


Yay! It's almost over and I can go take a nap!

Puddin' (Chrissette - my school friend) came to visit and play too

Getting some love from Aunt Stace

Giving Anna an Eskimo kiss

A few of the AU girls and their little ones (can you tell everyone is ready for a nap?)

One pooped party girl

Opening a few gifts after a quick cat-nap on the way home

I love my blocks - thank you Aunt Wren & Uncle Jason!

Thanks for celebrating with me!
