It really has been a year since I had this little monkey.
Yes, time flies. It's driving me crazy! I am not ready to let her grow up yet.
However, the family kept asking about a party.
And the calendar doesn't lie.
And so. My baby. My littlest girl. Turned one. And we threw her a party. *sniff*
We had a nice little shindig with immediate family who came to town, balloons, cake, hamburgers, chips and Jones Soda. Apparently, you can have your own bottle labels made, which is very cool.
We went the old school route and soaked off the labels and replaced them with simple ones that matched our table.
And added some tags to water bottles. Her classic monogram is aCe, something I could not help but use over. And over. And over again.
I am now officially on the paper circle cutter train. Total believer in their magic. I have a 2" cutter and a 1" cutter. And I want to cut everything into circles now.
We made our own pink table linens over a year ago for Fidget's 3rd birthday, and they get constant use with three girls in the house.
Craft paper and photo circles (ahem) worked for napkin rings.
And the cake. Well. Have I got a funny story for you. It involves me deciding to go with store bought cake because I had a lot going on last week and a husband out of town and just too.much.to.do.
It could be a rather long post.
And it's a very funny story.
The good news is, I kept my cool.
And there was cake.
Plenty of it.
The little monkey loved her first baby doll. Fidget likes this baby, too... and is already trying to negotiate some kind of time-share with it. I'll let you know how that goes.
Fidget wanted to get her baby sister a bubble machine.
I wonder why.
Summer is fun. But my kids' schedules are kicking my backside. You?
