First Birthday Adventures, Part IV

Friday, we had a small birthday celebration for Little A. I spent half of the morning trying to decide what cute little birthday dress to put her in, and at the last minute, decided a birthday dress was completely unnecessary for a pizza party and went with jeans and a halter top instead.

So, there.

It didn't hurt that Sassy had a matching one, too:



This is where we had her birthday party:



You know, I went back and forth about what to do. I like to go all out on birthdays and do something really creative, but this just wasn't the year. We are lucky to still be employed, and we thought low-key was the way to go. We'll make it up to her next year!

This is Little A arriving to her birthday party:



Luckily, she is usually a happy girl when she wakes up. Unlike someone I know... namely a 3-year-old sibling...

I made Ty take a picture of Little A and I before we even went inside. I am always behind the camera, and I wanted one with my girl:



Here's Daddy and his girls... so cute!



We did a loose theme of Winnie the Pooh. We went the minimalist route with decorations. We had a beehive cupcake cake made up:



And, some extra cupcakes... just in case...



We had the favor bags all lined up. In each one was a rubber duck for the bath tub and some kiddie soap that we just ♥ in the sweet pea household!



Each kiddo also got to take home a super cute Heffalump sippy cup from The Disney Store:



Little A settled in to her throne high chair as her friends arrived:



Soon, it was time for lunch. Don't worry... we didn't feed the kids jalapenos. This was Ty's request:



Little A's friends seemed to enjoy themselves eating and socializing:







Sassy helped Little A and Daddy blow out the candle:



Little A was only semi-interested in her smash cake:



She liked to trace the frosting around with her chubby little finger:



I helped Little A open presents. We are so blessed to have such awesome friends who have GREAT taste in gifts. I am thrilled that Little A has a personalized tote just like Sassy:



All in all, I'd say Little A is one lucky birthday girl!
