Par-tay!!!!!


We threw a rager for Davy's first birthday. We all know how she loves to party. So we went all out........milk kegs, Cheetos, snack packs and lollipops. All of Davy's favorite things.
The weekend of Davy's birthday was extremely busy for me. For some reason I thought it was a good idea to get all of the birthday parties over in one weekend(Max and Ollie's was the day before). I DO NOT recommend this. Not a good choice on my part(what was i thinking?!!!). It was really quite stressful. Throw in a crazy rainstorm , school talent show, the cupcake inc
ident and boy scout camping activity and you got your self a nervous breakdown.
By the time her day rolled around I was pooped. Luckily I borrowed the birthday decor and made my crafts weeks before. I also had the help of my lovely SIL's, Katie and Nan, thanks ladies.
Once it was party time, I was one very proud Mama. I was just really happy that this day was here. Davy turned one and I didn't even cry. I thought for sure I was going to be emotional all day. But I held it together. Ok, I may have got teary eyed once.
Doesn't Davy look deep in thought? I would love to know what she's thinking. I think she is reflecting on the past 12 months. Cuz she had some doozies.
But her somber mood did not last long. As soon as her peeps started rolling in, she was all smiles.

I love this picture of Miss Davy. She looks so happy. She was loving all the attention she was gettin.

I have to say I was a little surprised by Davy when it came to her cake. I expected her to act like a lady, but she was all over that thing. I had to stop her from licking the high chair clean. I actually started to get nervous that she was going to choke.
I wonder how much cake actually made it into her mouth?
After we hosed Davy off she had a second dessert of wrapping paper and lollipops.
It's really weird to think that she is one. I can't believe it.
Thank you to our family for celebrating her day with us!





**And thanks Grammy and Papa for letting us party at your house!

Happy Birthday, sweet Davy! What a fun party! You did a lovely job on the decorations. I love that you served her favorite foods! And by the looks of her cake, you might not have to worry about her ability to feed herself anymore!

It turned out great! Davy looks adorable, and oh so happy:)

I love how the cheetos made it into the celebration :). Packing all birthdays into one weekend is hard (dad and both kids are all within 3 days of each other) If it's not one huge party then someone gets left out. Glad you survived the weekend. Happy Birthday Again Davy!

I loved this post for so many reasons. I love the decorations and food and how cute Davy looked but mostly I loved it because she looks so healthy. I remember when I first started reading your blog, she's come a long way.

Happy Birthday Davy!!!

I finally got myself a google account so I could comment on your blog. I have been checking in for several months after finding your blog on CJane's. I think you are a wonderful mom, with gorgeous gorgeous children. I am always amazed by your love for your family, and by Davy's accomplishments. She's something else, that girl!

My little Kate will be turning 1 in just a couple weeks so I always like to see what your daughter is up to because they're so close in age. And for what it's worth, Yo Gabba Gabba is Kate's absolute FAVORITE tv show. As in...she freezes dead in her tracks if I put it on and just stares in awe at the tv lol. Love it!
