We celebrated her one year birthday at Monkey Bizness since I knew that we were inviting a lot of kids and there was no way I could entertain all of them at our house in 30 degree weather with rain and snow...yes I said snow! Its like Spring is never coming!
We had a fabulous time, Addy played great on the slides and eating her cake. It was just about nap time so we were surprised how well she did. I made 6 dozen cupcakes and icing from scratch. I am insane I know and I don't think that I am ever doing it again! No more attempting to be super mom, I will leave the baking up to the pros! I have to admit though I did cry once for a few seconds during her party. Once I heard all of our friends and family singing Happy Birthday to her I lost it! It just hit me like a ton of bricks and I had a hard time containing myself but I pulled through and was able to carry on hoping no one would notice!
We are incredibly thankful for our wonderful friends and family for coming to the party, it meant so much to us that everyone was able to come and wow did Addy get a lot of great gifts! Tons of adorable new clothes, hats, sunglasses, puzzles, books, a wagon, a horse, a princess car, and so much more! She loves all of her new stuff so much she has forgotten about her old toy basket!
