1st Birthday Party

Hadlee's birthday started at 4:00 AM, she woke up at 4 and was happy as can be. She totally gets this from me. When I know there is a sale, birthday, or something exciting the next day I wake up super early and can't sleep like its Christmas or something.... Anyways, she woke up at 4 and wanted to play, Pete brought her into our bed, we turned off the lights and she sat straight up and and was literally trying everything she could to wake us up, jumping on the bed, jumping on us, slapping our face, she was not going to let us sleep. Finally at about 5 we put her back into her crib and she went back to bed. I went in when I woke up and this is the cute face I saw...

We spent most of the day getting ready for her party. Okay, now before you say anything, I know I went a little over board, I have been reminded over and over again that she is not going to remember this but guess what, this is what I enjoy doing. I loved all the hours I put into this because it was for her, she may not remember it but she will have many pictures to look back on. So anyways, back to the party. It turned out just how I imagined it since the day she was born. I think I was planning her party before I even had her. Pete seriously thinks I am crazy. At least he still loves me. The theme was Monkey's & Banana's. (I call her Monkey)

*Pictures of the party COMING SOON*

The Birthday Girl!

Best Cousin's

having their little pow wow

Cars loves Hadlee, he is always wanting to play with her.

Grandma Great



Wasn't quit sure why everyone was looking at her.

Dad decided to help her a little.

didn't take long for her to figure it out

she didn't hold back.

if we didn't take is away she would have eaten the whole cake.

Hads got spoiled

Auntie Toss read Hads her new book that her and Trev got her.

Whenever we couldn't find Hadlee she was always hiding behind something eating something she found on the ground!

When it got dark the kids lined up the chairs and watched fireworks that someone on our street where doing. how cute! I am so glad Hadlee has so many cousins!

Pete had a great idea to suck the helium out of the balloons and sing Kate Perry "Firework" while the kids were watching the fireworks, they all got a kick out of it and wanted to join in.

oh she found something else on the ground....

When everyone left we took Hadlee to play with her toys while we cleaned up, every time we checked on her she was either reading her new books or her cards.

It was such a fun day! We can't thank everyone enough for making a effort of coming and celebrating this special day with us! We love you guys!
