Jordin's 1st Birthday

One of the greatest milestones that we witness in our lives is to see a baby turning one. This past week my own little girl had her first birthday. We enjoyed a very initmate outside party with our friends and family. The party was a princess theme. The theme was actually started with my sister in law who was making Jordin her own princess doll cake. It is a terrble shame that she unfornatuly couldn't finsh the cake due to a family emergancy. She makes amazing cakes that are the shape of an actualy woman (brides, queens, princess, etc.) I hope to be able to share a picture with you soon. The party was filled with crowns, wands, jewels, candy, chocolate...everything you can imagine for a royal princess

The day started with much running around to get the balloons, flowers, candy all set up. With the help of my husband I was able to get backyard ready in time for when the food arrived as well as the arrival of some early guests. As people started to arrive you can see the anxiety continue to overwhelm Jordin's face. She was not a happy camper being passed around and everyone laughing and talking in her face. It was not before long that her temper blew and she was now a very unhappy princess. With the help of a nap she woke up in a much better mood. The kids at the party enjoyed games, cotton candy, lollie pops and a candy buffet.

Overall we had a very successful and pleasent day but the next time I want to have a party at my house; mental note self I am EXHAUSTED from it!! I have to rember to keep telling myself that having a party at an event space or resturant makes for less stress than having to entertain at your own house.
