Daisy & her birthday party

This past Saturday was Daisy's first birthday! I can't believe a whole year has come and gone, but it's been a great one! Here are pics from the party..

Some of the fabric garland/banner in the dining room. I SLAVED over this for weeks (the cutting of the pieces was brutal!) but it was so worth it. It's still up! I love it..

Close-up on the chandelier...

Mike and his mom so diligently made me the flower balloons I wanted! There were clusters of pink and white ones all throughout the house! Those are still up, too ;)

The cake! I love making cakes for my family.. this one had lemon curd filling — all homemade!

Mmm.. cupcakes

Daisy was waiting for her party guests, playing with a balloon! Fun!

Checking out her cake!

Ben sure liked the cupcakes.. the icing at least!

Cutie-pie birthday girl!

Proud Granny (GG in the background!). She was such big help, as always! Love you Mom!

Concentrating on playing with her new toys..

Happy girl!

Some pictures finally!

The month so far.. busy! It was our 7th wedding anniversary at the beginning of the month. Mike finished school — he is now a journeyman electrician!!! Then I turned 30 (woo!) and started back to work part time, so did Mike. Now we are preparing for Daisy's first birthday this Saturday!

Ben attacking bubblewrap..

"Eyebrow" look!

My anniversary flowers... I wish I got a picture of the 30 lovely tulips from Kerry!

And Daisy.. almost a big girl!

A quick update..

Things have been so busy around here! I have pictures to upload, but haven't had a chance to get them off of the camera! Mike finished his last day of school today — WOO! So glad to be done that chapter (or should I say chapterS!) and move on! We both go back to work on Monday (a certain someone's birthday ;D) and the kids go to daycare, Daisy's first day. It's old hat for Ben, his beloved Eva! Daisy's birthday is quickly approaching and tomorrow my lovely friend Sarah at Silver Lamb Studios is taking her cake smashing pictures! Can't wait!

Will post more when I have 10 minutes to myself :P
