It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to. That is what our pediatrician(yeah, she reads my blog. I know, how cool is that?? I love it when I find out people actually read my blog) told me she thought of when I posted these pictures. So, so true.
I had a big party planned for Teagen’s first birthday. I painstakingly made every.single.decoration. I was so excited. Just something about a fun, girly party filled with lots of cute babies. How could it possibly get any better? Well, Eli got sick then Teagen got sick. And, we had to cancel the party. To say that I was bummed is a serious understatement. But, I decided to make the best of it and decorate anyways. I invited my parents because they have both worked in the public school systems and have immune systems of stone. And, I invited my sister because, honestly, I might have *slightly* understated exactly how sick they were so that she would come. I mean, we are so over the 4 day incubation period so I know that I am in the clear! We had a little party and I decorated away. In fact, we still have some of the decorations up today. I just can’t bear to take them down. I know, I know. But, I am a *bit* sentimental like that. Teagen had a great time(other than the big pouty lip, swollen eyes and crocodile tears) and Eli also had a blast.
Here are the invitations I made and a cute shot from her one year photos…Some of the decorations and another one year shot…And, these *awesome* cupcakes that my friend made…yeah, she went to pastry school. Aren’t they perfect and beautiful. They were so delicious!!And, I made all these bow and bow holders for the girls that were coming…now, I have to mail them out!
Let’s not forget about the birthday girl herself…
