We did it. We had a big birthday bash, and I survived the day my daughter turned one. It took a lot of medication, but I didn't even collapse into a pile of tears and snot, so YAY ME.

On to the party re-cap. Mostly pictures, not many words.  


 Look how big I am!!

 The doll I made her. :)

 The blankey I made her. :)


We only had two big storms we had to move to the center of the pavilion for, so I would say it was a success. Lots of family, food, and laughter.  We had a blast.

Then, there was the other big day: Her actual birthday yesterday.

 A breakfast pancake!
 Okay, so I tossed a few chocolate chips in there.  Her birthday is only once a year!

 Lunch on a silver platter?  It MUST be her birthday!

 The best picture I could get of her and her doll wearing their matching dresses

It was a good first birthday.

Thanks to everyone who made it so special.
