We set the date (March 5), booked the room (Chrisiansburg Rec Center - Our house is tooo little!ewwwwwE`), and sent out invitations. That's kinda where the "we" part ended - sorry babe! I decided on a girly giraffe theme for her party since she seems to like her giraffe stuffed animals and it was her Halloween costume and all. I ordered a lot of the supplies online and picked up the rest at a local party store and Wal-Mart. I scheduled the party for 11:30 - 1:30 so Brenna would be between naps. She decided to only take a 30 minute nap that morning (of course!) but she hung in there and took a great afternoon nap as soon as we got home. We are so thankful to our friends and family who came to celebrate our sweet girl's first year with us.


  1. Looks like a great party. The cake is very impressive. And, of course, Brenna looks adorable.

  2. Erin ~ I love your cake! The flower spots and the peanut butter cup mane are ingenious!!! Looks like a fabulous celebration!
