The Birthday Party!

Saturday, April 10, 2010


Between Disney and the hospital stay - we were finally able to have GO's 1st Birthday Party.
We had it outside in the front yard, with lawn chairs, blankets, toys and a tent for the food.

All her cousins came to play - including one of her cousin-cousins - and Prince and Princess had to come for the fun!

The theme was Fisher-Price Little People.  I had ordered the cake from Publix (along with the smash cake and extra cupcakes for the younger guests).  I just used her new animals to decorate.

We are so blessed with generous friends and family.

For dinner we had chili dogs and chips.  GO loved her hot dogs!
The kids really enjoyed playing outside, most of the grown-ups took a turn throwing a football or Frisbee at some point.
When it was cake time, everyone piled inside to sing happy birthday.
We took her outside for her smash cake experience (which will be documented in another post).
Then it was time for a quick bath to get the cake off of her face and out of her hair!

She did NOT like the hairdryer today (which is odd, because usually she loves it).  I, however, love this photo!
After bathing, GO opened her presents.  It was so cute to watch her try to rip the paper!
Then we hung out until it was time for everyone to go home.

THANK YOU to everyone who celebrated GO's first birthday with us - and those who sent well wishes, but couldn't be there, THANK YOU, too!
