Playing in the chair that Grandma Kathy repainted and reupholstered. It used to belong to daddy when he was little.
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.
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!
