1 year old

i can not believe that my baby girl is 1 year old! the time has gone by way too fast! we celebrated campbell's birthday on saturday with just my small family and aaron's family that was here with hideaway pizza and gifts.

onto the big par-tay...

her party was yesterday and unfortunately she didn't start her day off so well. we woke up happy and right as we were about to walk out the door for church, she realized she had a fever - 102.3 cam and i stayed home 1. no feverish babies in the nursery 2. i didn't want to wear her out before the party even started, so we lounged around at home and watched a little tennis and a little indy 500. back to the party...if i had to pick a 'theme', i would say it was lollipops. all inspired by the invites that we got from toast & laurel. i was so pleased with them!

forgive the picture, its a scan not the original proof. so from the invites, i knew i wanted to use the bright colors and somehow carry the lollipop through. so here is a glimpse into the party:

here are the party favors with coordinating tags also made by toast & laurel

here is some of the food - we grilled burgers and hot dogs

...and our lovely guests

and the climax was the cake! i have never given campbell any kind of sugar, so i hoped she would be her mother's daughter and dig into the cake and absolutely love it! well, i think i may have a girly-girl on my hands because at first she just kept touching the cake with one finger; she didn't really dig in and get dirty like i had imagined. i made her cake to look like a lollipop and i iced it with cool whip so it wouldn't be so rich for her, but i did make the lollipop part with buttercream.

it was a great party! we loved celebrating our baby girl with our family and friends!
campbell has been such a joy this last year. we can't wait to see who she grows up to be...we are so thankful for her beautiful, healthy little life. thank you, Jesus! :) we love you campbell!
