Clara's 1st birthday party

I took a little (unplanned) break from blogging last week. We had Clara's birthday party on the 11th, then friends in town until the 14th, and then two big medical appointment for Clara that consumed the rest of the week! And then when you're living life all in between, there is no time left for the computer. And. . . that is ok. :)

Here's a recap of Clara's 1st birthday party. I'll let the pics do the talking! A big thanks to my sister Susan, mother in law, Debbie, and friend Aja for taking so many cute pics. I have SO many more, but there was no way I could post them all! (And sorry. . . didn't have time to organize them and post in a nice little order. You know this is killing the OCD in me. But. . . I'm working on letting it go, Ha!)

  5. Looks like a fun party! Just yesterday Emry was going through her baby book and noticed two tickets to 'Sesame Street Live' and thought it was so cool that we took her. So even though sweet Clara probably won't remember this party, she'll see the pictures and appreciate all the effort. Good job momma, and I love the exposed brick in your home.

  13. So bummed we were out of town! The pictures are adorable. I especially love the one where Clara's yawning in her highchair. Proof that 1st birthdays are just another excuse for the parents to get together and hang out :)
