Today is her actual birthday but we have been partying all weekend!

On Saturday we had her actual birthday party at my parent's house in Payson. It was so cute and a lot of fun. There was a minor/major {more major in my mind} We get all the shopping done and that last trip was "The Sweet Tooth Fairy". I go in and they are out of almost EVERY cupcake. Mind you it is 2:30pm and they are open until 7pm. I didn't call ahead because I was only planning on buying 6 of 3 different flavors and the last Saturday we went in to try flavors so we would know what to buy and there were plenty of cupcakes, this was at 6:30pm. So we thought there wouldn't be a problem getting a few earlier in the day. Oh no, I left the store nearly in tears. They were the big thing for the party since it was cupcake themed. I was MAJORLY disappointed. My mom and I called at least 10 bakeries and they either weren't open or didn't make cupcakes or don't have an actual store and you have to pre-order everything. My mom said I have a really good recipe that we made last week, so lets hurry home and I will make them. {SHOUT OUT to Jess Peterson for the recipe from her cute blog... go visit her, she is awesome!!!} We got home a little after 3 and had to get the food and cupcakes done by 6. We were stressed!!! Chris was a little worried about us, he kept asking how we were and how our day was. He is too cute! We ended up getting everything done {about a half hour late though} . I was very happy with how everything turned out and a HUGE THANK YOU goes out to my mom for all her hard work and help with the party. She is the best mom a girl could ask for!!!
Coming up next, the most adorable 1 year pics you have EVER seen {well in my opinion} and our venture to Chuck E Cheese with Granny and Paw Paw!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the sweetest, happiest, funnest and most beautiful baby girl! You mean everything to your dad and I. Life would be so boring without you. The love you bring into our home is irreplaceable. I can't believe you have grown so quickly. {you can slow down now} I hope you always know how loved you are!! Have a great Birthday!!
Your mommy
