Bea's Big Birthday Celebration


Yea, even though we are a month out almost, Bea's first birthday is still pretty fresh in our minds. Here are some photos from her big bee-themed first birthday celebration that we had at our house on March 10th. Thanks to all the super special people who joined us to the celebrate the miracle that is Baby Bea, the wonder that is Josie as a big sister and the joy & gratitude we have to be a family of four!

Some sights from the big event:
An exercise in elapsed time

Last year's harvested sunflower seeds make great party favors
Hand Foot Mouth virus - not so much (Oopsies!)

I heart etsy.

A ***SURPRISE*** cake from our friend Teresa
(aka one of the kindest, most generous people we know)!!!

About 20 pounds worth of cake from Whole Foods

Thanks to Tia for helping with the photos! XO! Next year, I swear I am going to get all the family photos out of the way first.  At least there's some evidence that most of us were actually there. :)

I hope you enjoyed your first circle around the sun just as much as we did!

Isn't Etsy the BEST?!
