So, the birthday party was last weekend. It was pink. And sweet. And then there was more pink. And there was family and a fun group of friends there with us to celebrate the first year of our Princess Sparklepants. Really, a perfect day that reminded me how very fortunate we are to have so much happiness and love in our lives. And cupcakes in our lives, too.
The party setup.
Vivian came downstairs after her nap and checked out the party decor with Mommo (aka grandma, grandma in toddlerspeak = Mommo).
While we waited for her party guests, we played "pass the birthday girl around and take pictures with her".
Auntie Megan and birthday girl.
Mommy and birthday girl.
Uncle Michael and his favorite nephew (the baby was unavailable).
Grandpa, Mommo, A & V. Doesn't Anderson look SO HAPPY to be taking pictures?
Daddy and birthday girl.
Great grandma and birthday girl.
Great grandpa, Auntie Megan, babies, and the Talking Tom iPad app that A's obsessed with.
Anderson and Auntie waiting for "fwens".
And now, she's one. With the last of the family departed (sniff, sniff), real life resumes tomorrow. And DVR viewing resumes tonight. Bachelor time! Even if I already know what happens because some people don't get the whole "don't post Bachelor spoilers on Facebook ten seconds after the show ends" thing.
