Natasha's 1st Birthday Party was on Saturday and she was a great hostess. She greeted everyone and went from one person to the next giving mommy and daddy some time to enjoy the delicious food and great company. Thank goodness the hail storm the night before came and went and I was able to string up the sunflowers the next day when everything was dry. It was still pretty cool outside, but at least it was not raining. Parties by Panache did an awesome job (as always) with the quesadilla station and the taco bar. Not to mention the beautiful table centerpieces that went along with the Spring theme. Natasha really enjoyed her birthday cake (as you can see above) and had no problem digging in. I'm very proud of her for doing so well when all the attention was focused on her. She had no problem with us singing "Happy Birthday" to her. I know this can change year to year, but she loved it. The rest of us enjoyed yummy homemade ice cream sandwiches! We still have a dozen or so left in our freezer... shhhh, don't tell anyone. Overall, it was a wonderful party and we want to thank all our family and friends for coming and celebrating our baby girl's 1st birthday!

Off to Minnesota this weekend for Country Kenny's 90th birthday... lots of birthday's to celebrate this month!


  1. Oh what fun! I am sorry that we could not make it. I enjoy seeing these photos of Natasha enjoying her birthday cake. Pretty cute!!

  2. Kyra had so much fun (and so did we!). I wish we could've stayed longer, but we'll have to set up a playdate one of these days! Maybe the girls will warm up to the bounce house when there aren't so many other kids playing in it. Natasha's going to love having that thing when she gets older! Happy Birthday, sweet girl!

  3. So cute! It looks like Natasha had a great time at her party! Love her outfit and the spring theme. Wish we could have been there. Hope to see you soon!
