Table of sweets and tower of beautiful and tasty cupcakes.

Looks like the birthday girl is wanting to join the party outside.

I just loved the angle of this picture with the little lady in the background. My brother is AWESOME at taking pictures!

Picture boards of the birthday girl. One picture for every month showing off some of the many different facial expression of Maddie.

Happy birthday to me!!!

YAY! It's my birthday.

"What am I supposed to do with this?!"

Tasting the frosting. After one taste she realized she REALLY liked it!

Yummy....loving that cupcake.

Our little lady is ONE!

"He did it!"

Present time!!! She was more interested in the wrapping paper than anything. :-)

Getting some love and kisses from daddy.

We just had to throw a BIG 1st birthday bash for our little lady. She definitely deserved it....afterall being one is a big deal. We had a ladybug themed birthday party to celebrate our little lady turning one. Complete with ladybugs and polka dots EVERYWHERE, BBQ hamburgers and hotdogs, and a sweets table filled with candy, cookies, and cupcakes! Thankfully the weather held up perfectly for us. We definitely weren't looking forward to have 60+ people inside our house. It worked out great. The sun came out in just enough time to celebrate.

Maddie had a WONDERFUL time being the center of attention! She especially loved it when everyone began singing happy birthday to her. She just clapped with joy. What a doll! She wasn't she tearing in to her very own special birthday cupcake either. She LOVED the frosting. Looks like she got mommy's sweet tooth. Yikes.

We feel so very blessed for all of our family and friends who helped to celebrate such a special occasion. We were especially lucky to have my best friend of 15 years, Kimber, fly in from Utah to join in the festivities. Kimber has been such a blessing in my life and we have been through the good times and bad over the last 15 years. And what better way to spend time together than to celebrate a very special little girls 1st birthday. Thank you to all of the helping hands who put so much time and effort into making this day all the more fantastic. We could not have done it without you!
