I wanna PARTY!


    The girls woke up the morning of Maggie's birthday celebration to this... I've gotta admit that I had way too much fun with this!  I left these decorations up for two weeks! I know it's hard to see that garland on the wall over there but it's tons of tiny little butterfly cut-outs held by some string. Like I said- I had fun. ;)

Thank you pinterest for the fun streamer idea! Nothing but a hula hoop and streamers... genius!!! These pictures make me miss our little austin home so badly, it was a good little home...

The start of any good party and day... pancakes!  The traditional "how old you are" chocolate chip pancake... yummm

ONE! Already trying to pick out the chocolate, haha!

We had a great day of celebrating as a family.  We did it a few weeks early so that Tyler could be there and I was so grateful that we did! We had such a good day. One of the best- just being a family. 

Later on Nana and Pop joined us for CAKE! Maggie wanted to grab hold of that flame the whole time. Rachel sure didn't have any problem assisting Maggie in blowing out the candle... haha, she finally figured out how to blow!

Ahhhh! CAKE CAKE CAKE!!! Mags sure knew what to do...
