Celebration... Guinnyth is 1!

How did this happen?  I seriously feel like I have just given birth to my precious baby.
Life moves at lightening speed these days.  
I wanted to have a sweet, simply party for my little girl.
She brings so much life and sass to our little family, and I wanted to honor her.
We don't do big birthdays around here much.  The first birthday is the "party" birthday and from then on we keep it pretty low key.

We invited immediate family (grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins) to celebrate our little lady's life with us.
I put together a hot air balloon birthday for her.  
I worked with muted shades of blue, green, and peach.
It was perfect.

The kids loved the sprinkled mason jars.
The chalkboard took me quite a while to perfect.  I wasn't totally happy with it, but at some point, you just have to move on to the next project.

I had sandwiches and fresh fruit complete with a floral, hot air balloon centerpiece.
Want to know what the cheapest banner ever is- a chalkboard banner! 

We took some family photos on our porch.
Guinnyth isn't digging the pics.  I think she's ready for her first taste of sugar!

My sweet girl brings me so much joy.
She isn't afraid to keep me on my toes either.

She actually did pretty well opening presents. 
She got distracted, but all-in-all did fairly well.

Next up... the CAKE!

Ummm... yep.  She is a big fan of processed sugar. 
Look at that face!

It was a wonderful day filled with family and fun.
I cannot wait to spend another year watching our little lady grow.
