{E's First Birthday Bash}

What is better than an afternoon surrounded by all of your baby friends and family, pizza, E shaped watermelon & cookies, carrot cake, water balloons, pinatas & a bounce house? Um, nothing....duh.

Thank you to our friends and family for spending the afternoon with us. We had a blast celebrating Elle's first birthday with all of you and I'm certain that baby girl felt the love! We are so blessed to have such amazing peeps in our lives.

Side note: even though it was E's birthday, it was also my "birth" day too and It felt nice to receive a few gifts as the mom who made it through the first year of teething & sleepless nights & all of the wonderful things that come along with raising a teeny little lady.

I received {this} necklace from my mom with the kiddos names on it & two 30x40 museum mounted photos of the kids from my brother Vinni. Giving a gift to the Mom on a baby's first birthday is such a great idea, I think I'm going to have to steal it. 

{Can't believe she's ONE already? Where did the time go?}
