Madison turned one on March 18th. I, however, neglected to take a picture of her on her actual birthday. Sigh. I was so focused on her party being on the 20th, I didn't get out the camera. Her little sisters sang to her, repeatedly, through out the day though, so it wasn't totally unnoticed.
Maddie's ornament was the nursery rhyme about the cow jumping over the moon, so I had them make a "sky" cake. The cow probably jumped over the moon at NIGHT, but this was as close as I could come.
The bakery includes a free small cake for baby's first birthday, so that the other guests do not have to have slobbery cake.
Maddie, with Poppa. Another rare smile sighting.
Also at the party were Maddie's paternal grandparents, my Mom, my stepmom, my sister and her boyfriend, and our neice. Oh yeah, and her parents and 5 sisters. There are no pictures of her with any of these other pictures in my camera. Not sure what happened there, but I promise to make up for it on the next occasion we get together!
When it came time to have cake, Brittany noted that we had already put Maddie in pajamas, and that we might not want her getting cake all over herself. She went and got one of her own t-shirts to cover her up with. She's a quick thinking girl!
This, however, is as messy as she got. Of my six girls, only one of them really plowed into her cake. All the other ones have just sort of dabbled in it.
It was a fun day, especially considering that I had the food catered, and we used disposables. Not the greenest solution, I know, but it sure made the day easier! Next stop, scrapbooking the day!
Next blog entry, projects.
