Alice 1st "Cupcake" Bday Party...

Alice had her 1st "cupcake" theme birthday party over the weekend. She enjoyed seeing family and especially loved the food...of course, she will eat just about anything you put in front of her (yes, including garbage if we gave it to her). With sloppy joes and fruit salad, chips, veggies and dip, taking down the pinata, and cupcake eating fun; it was bound to be the best 1st bday party ever...Bday girl getting ready for the guests to arrive...
These scrumptious delights were part of the going away favors for the party guests. If you are interested in finding out how to make these EASY delights, go to; MMMM, so good and super cute!
Aunt Gretchen made these HAPPY BIRTHDAY blocks for Lucy's 1st bday party last year. We borrowed them... so cute! THANKS GRETCHIE!!
Food, MMMM so good! And the weather was willing to cooperate with us, allowed us to use the nice backyard... the kids loved it!
The kids decided that instead of pulling the string on the bottom of the pinata, they insisted we used the bat to break it apart; in the end it took 3 men to literally bust the thing apart...Lilly so focused and intent on busting it open...GO LU-LU!!
Party favor bags made easy with digital scrapbooking cupcakes (provided by Stephanie Fry (THANK YOU!)) printed out on photo paper, cut and pasted to goodie baggies....The Birthday Girl sets her gaze on her birthday cupcake, and didn't even give the candle enough time to be blown out before she was intent on gobbling it up. She was so funny, she started with the top but then decided to keep going with the bottom and finish with the top. That's my girl!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALICE!! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
(Loads of ideas for cupcake theme parties found on the internet, along with a special thanks to Steph for providing the digital scrapbooking CD for all the fun cutouts and the cute cupcake theme idea she threw for her own little one a few years ago. Your the best!!)

Alice is 1!!

Yesturday was Alice's 1st birthday (even though we arent celebrating until this weekend with family and friends)...
She has been an absolute joy and delight to watch as she grows from infant to this strong and curious toddler. She adores mommy and daddy, LOVES LOVES LOVES her sisters and is always interested in everything around her. I remember as she came into our lives hardly a peep was to be heard and as they lay her on my tummy her big eyes were wide as she immediately was taking in the world. Ever since then she most def. is the most patient little one I have ever come to see and know. She loves life, loves to be happy and is very rare to see a dissatisfied look on her face. We are so lucky to have her in our lives...
