THE Party


The big 1st birthday party was on Saturday and it was so much fun!


I used lots of pictures as my party decorations!

This was a picture of Katie every month...

up until her first birthday. It was fun to see all the changes in a row!


This is the cake and treat table:


I filled mason jars with candy for the guests. (which was just family)

My friend Catherine made these labels for me! I love them. She is quite the little party planner. Check out her blog here.



Cake for us and a cake for Katie:


More pics on the mantle. I had toddler tunes playing on the TV!





And here is the birthday girl!



This is her daddy hard at work in the kitchen. He made some delicious fajitas!


The cousins at the kid table:


Grampy and Nonni (my parents)


Poppa and Annie (Marcus's parents)


The three musketeers!


Katie had fun opening gifts. I did too! She got some really cute things and has been playing nonstop.


I think her favorite part of the day was being sung to. She thought that was great!



She totally loved the cake!


She wanted to share with Ryan.


Marcus scrubbed her down in the bath tub after that. It was the only way to get all the icing off.


It was such a fun day!
We are so thankful to have all our family close to celebrate with us!

And we are especially thankful for Katie and what a joy and blessing she is every day!
