On Saturday we celebrated Violet's first birthday by throwing her a party. Of course it was mostly just an excuse to get together with my own good friends and stuff my face but she was truly the bell of the ball. We all had so much fun and I couldn't ask for better friends here in Tucson. Beware: an insane amount of pictures are to follow. It's about to get crazy.
Here she is on Wednesday, her actual birthday with a special balloon from Daddy. I think she liked it. :)
Lois, Violet, Avery, cuteness.
My BFF Lili with Princess Baby.
She raked in some serious booty with her gifts and all she wanted to do was climb those stairs!
Reading her new ballerina book. Who do you think likes it more? Me or her? :)
Our only family photo. Blurry but you get the picture.
King Jack consumed his weight in goodies. This was his third cake and I know I gave him at least 2 cake pops. Who knows how many else he sneaked behind my back. SUGAR!!!
Love. Sweet, sticky love.
Here are a few of the kids checking out a new stroller. I think they like it, what do you think? Haha!
The cupcake sequence is backwards but that's ok. I'm not about to mess with all the photos to switch it around.
I had to physically restrain her from grabbing that little crown candle. Stinker girl.
These bubble pipes were fun until several of the kids sucked in instead of blowing out. Ew.
A little early cake pop snack. Look at her diving to get to that thing!
The spread. I also made Ham n Cheese sliders courtesy of http://just-cook-already.blogspot.com/. RAVE REVIEWS!
This was the scene less than five minutes before the guests arrived. Good thing we convinced him that naked boys aren't fun at a birthday party. I won't be surprised when he joins a nudist colony someday.
