Grace's 1st Birthday Party!

Gracie had a Cupcake 1st Birthday Party!

Her own little cake. She very carefully ate the "cherry" off of the top & smeared some icing on the side. I didn't expect her to go crazy with it. She's always very careful & gentle with new things.

Hayley & Jarrod, Lindy & Mia came down for the big bash! So glad they could come!

The boys...Andrew, John, Jon, & Mike

Hayley & Miss Mia


Lindy & cupcakes for you!

"It's my party and I'll cry if I want to..." She did NOT want to wear her party hat! Her hair looks so blonde here.


Molly enjoyed her cupcake! And she liked wearing a party hat!

"These are for me?!"

She puts her arms behind her back when she concentrates!

Emily & Molly, Lindy & Mia, Emily & Grace, Sara & Kenadie, Jessi & Sam & Josh

LOTS of new toys to play with. She had a high speed come apart when we got home from her party...too much of everything will do that to a girl. After her nap she was ready to dive into hard core playing.

I cannot believe our baby is ONE year old! She is the light of our lives...such a blessing. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about what could've been last year at this time...God saved me & allowed us to raise this dear child together.

Can't wait to see what our next year with Grace will thankful for our baby, our health, our marriage, our church, our families, our friends...the list goes on and on!

Grace's 1st Birthday!!!

My pictures are in reverse...again...jeezo!

Erika, Ellie, & Jake stopped by before bedtime to give her a few gifts. She loves her new flower garden!

The family went shopping for her birthday party! We usually don't shop with Daddy...he's so much fun!

Grace had her first ice cream cone! She loved it!

And her first Happy nutritious, I know...she can spare a few calories.

Check out my new forward facing car seat! I love it! She was so confused the first car ride..."I can see you!"

This little hat was mine when I was a baby. And her jacket is new from Daddy for her birthday.


Birthday morning..."YEA!"

First sleep in my new car seat.

Grace & Magaw...Happy Birthday Magaw!

We had a nice dinner at our house for Ann & Erika's birthdays.
