Paisley's Birthday Party

Seth and I decided that we wanted Paisley's first birthday party to be intimate, and so we just invited those that really know and LOVE Paisley.  We wanted just family and a couple of friends that we are close to.  Her party guests included: Papaw & Mimi, The Dales, Jo, and our good friends The Paniaguas and The Schlenskers.  We had a great time just sitting around watching Paisley be her cute self.

I made this large topiary ball out of crepe paper.  Don't ever attempt this takes WAY too long to do.  I copied from Pinterest, but didn't know what I was getting into!

I totally forgot to take any pictures of any of the kids.  This was all that I got!

Opening presents!!!!  P got a whole new wardrobe!

One crazy party!

P trying out the cake

Of course, she LOVES it!

Going in with both hands!

As if Paisley didn't get enough cake the first time!  I caught Papaw sharing his piece with her later on!

Papaw is such a sucker for these girls!!!

And they love him too!

We had such a fun time celebrating our little girl!  I was so sad that night thinking that she is one and how quickly it has gone.  I just hope the next 17 years CRAWL by!  :)

Happy Birthday Paisley Kate!!!
We love you so much!

The Birthday

Paisley's birthday fell on a Friday, and we had our usual day of dance class and lunch with friends...but with a lot of birthday fun mixed in.  P had our birthday tradition of chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast. Then the girls played a little dress up.  Then we went to Jules dance class and out to lunch with our friends Holly, Presley, and Hudson.  Mimi met us out for lunch too and brought birthday cookies!  Then P got to eat pizza for dinner!  This was probably the best birthday ever in Paisley's opinion!  I forgot my camera (sad) because I usually like to take pictures of the girls all day long on their big day.  I got breakfast and dinner pictures...but missed everything in between!

she's thrilled!


The big girls dressed her up too!

But she DOES NOT like to be held down for pictures anymore.  This girl is on the move!

She cleaned up nicely for the birthday picture!

Happy 1 year old!

And she's off again!

Feeding time again!  Birthday pizza for the birthday girl.

Most of her food gets donated to her BFF, Tyson.  She loves to feed this dog!

So that was the big day.  Next up is pictures of the birthday party!
