Birthday Party

Today was Cali's first Birthday Party! We had friends and family join us for a wonderful party! It was great to enjoy time with all the people who love Cali and who will invest in her life over the years.

Some of the party guests enjoying lunch.

This is Cali's cute cupcake dress! She was playing with a balloon and "Uncle" Jon.

Cali received a ton of adorable gifts! She helped open the bags and tried to eat the tissue paper! Her wardrobe and toy collection have both increased. We plan to stagger the introduction of the new toys so the fun will last a few days.
This is Cali checking out her gifts.

Cali's cake before. Our awesome friend Abby and her friend Kathryn were nice enough to make it for Cali. It looked perfect and just like the birthday invitation!
This is Cali's first taste of cake. Trying to figure out what she thinks...

She liked it! I helped break off some of it but she did most of the damage.

The cake after!

This were the treats for everyone. I stamped them with cupcakes and Cali's initials then filled them with candy. Since Cali's birthday is just after Valentines Day and she is a girl, I got great deals of the paper products and candy for the party. All the pink stuff I wanted for 50% off!

Since Cali is one years old, we decided it was time for a high chair. Thanks to Grandma Jordan, here it is! She seemed to like it.

Cali was a rock star at the party! She was social and let people hold her. She played well with the other kids and shared her toys. I was so pleased with how well she did and hope everyone had a great time.

Thank you all for being a part of our lives and helping us make it through our first year of parenthood! We are so blessed to have you in our lives.

Happy Birthday Party Day Cali!
