Sweet Pea's Birthday Party

I started writing this many days ago now and obviously never got around to completing it...let's try again...

We celebrated Sweet Pea's first birthday for the last time on Saturday, April 3rd.  It was a wonderful day shared by many friends and family!  The weather even cooperated and we did it all outside...which is a really good thing since our house is tiny.  Thank you to everyone that shared this special day with us.  It was truly a celebration of surviving the first year and we couldn't have done it without everyone!  We have been blessed to be surrounded by such love and support and Sweet Pea is so lucky to have such a great network surrounding her!

Here are tons of photos from the great day!

Cousins went to a easter egg hunt before the party which explains the adorable bunny ears

I love this kid!!!  Always adorable!

Sweet Pea's cupcake

Aren't these cakes amazing?!?!  I loved them!  Thank you Auntie J!  You did great work on the entire party!

Good clean bubble fun!

She looks a bit nervous about what is to come...

She refused to use her hands!  And I love the feet!

Apparently the plain old whipped cream cheese for frosting was a hit! 

Finally the glasses are helping us!

Papa Bear...I love you!

The cousins made beautiful butterflies out of coffee filters and closepins.

Auntie J and the cousins scattered butterflies throughout the yard and the kids had to collect them before they decorated them.

Sweet Pea had a hard day, but she was a trooper through it all!  She didn't want to miss a minute of the action!

Maybe she will choose to become a dental assistant as she certainly examines all of our mouths plenty!

And more presents!
