Celebrating K!

Big boy, about 3 weeks back we celebrated your first birthday! I received the pictures from it last evening and couldn't wait to write about it!

 I am a bit of a planner as you will see when you grow up, so I started planning this day over a month before the D-day! Yes, over a month! :)

There was a lot going on...from designing the invite to deciding on the guest list to finalizing the menu to trying out the recipes and what not!

 O Boy! It was a lot of work for a simple celebration I wanted with family and close friends but all so worth it! 

 Having the family together

 to celebrate YOU was the best thing of all!

 We were joined by friends!

There were a variety of hors ‘d oeuvres for guests to snack on!

Everyone socialized

including you! :)

When it was time to cut the cake

 everyone gathered together

and sang you a birthday song! :)

We then blew the candle and cut the cake together! :)

You dug in to get a little taste and I gave you some too! :)

That day for some reason you weren't too much into the cake, but you sure enjoyed playing with the balloons!

At the end of the party, we had party favors for the kids to take home!

I love photography.  Pictures in my mind are a great way to freeze moments and create beautiful memories!  So knowing I would be busy with the guests, I had to have some one cover this special day for me. I reached out to Shauna Ploeger who did a beautiful job covering the evening!

Although you love people and are very social, that evening you were a bit overwhelmed with the crowd. Something I never expected.

You were however back to being yourself when it was time for the "After Party"! Yes, there was an After Party! ;)

and an "After After Party", for which I have no pictures just memories! ;)

This was a celebration to remember!

Having the family over to celebrate your big milestone with us will always be very dear to my heart!

I wish you countless celebrations with loved ones always!

Sweetie-pie, we love you very very very very much!
