Birthday Party!

This is a bit delayed, but as my last post said, we have been a busy family lately!

Caelyn's party was on January 30th. It was a great time!

We had it at my parents house from 1-3, but it definitely ran over to close to 4. Oops! It was a puppy dog theme!
I sent out invitations that were hot pink cardstock that I had cut out into a dog bone shape. I wish I had a picture! But, it said "Come Wag Your Tails for Caelyn's 1st Birthday at Grandma's Doghouse!"
Totally cheesy, I know, but come on.. I had to think of something!

I had the tables set up with white table cloths and then I used a stamp and stamped hot pink paw prints on the tables. I tried to get a picture, but they didn't turn out right!
Her cake was oh so cute and oh so yummy!

I made a huge huge batch of puppy chow the night before. It was a hit. I can't wait to make it again, except this time, its just for us! I had these little green bowls that are Caelyns and we use them for her snacks, so I took them and put paw print stickers on it for the puppy chow.

Oh and lets not forget the doggy bags for the kids with a lot of candy in it and the crescent dogs to eat! There was a lot of other food as well.

As for the cake.. well we enjoyed it, but.. Caelyn was too dainty for the whole smashing cake. My sister thought she would help her and she really wasn't happy about that.

You can't tell but she was fussing and NOT a happy girl!

All in all, it was a great party. She got some really nice presents. Mommy needs to get cracking on the thank yous! I have to get to Wal-Mart, probably tomorrow after work, to buy them!

I can't believe my baby girl is 1!!
Speaking of being one, today we had her one year check up. She is 31lbs and 6oz. Sweet! She gained like 2lbs since her last appointment about 2-3months ago and she is 32inches tall now! She had two shots, but she was awesome! I gave her my iPhone with some Baby Signing Time YouTube videos playing, she cried for about a split second then just continued to watch it.
Sigh.. my girl is growing up.
