Great American Game Break House Party

I got picked by to host a game party for Mattel! They sent me Uno, Apples to Apples, Whack a Mole, 3 trophies, plastic cups, coasters, coupons and 2 jiffy popcorns! One of my friends from Baytown came down a day early and spent the night.  Lots neighbors said they were going to come but we had a terrible storm with so much rain so only one braved the weather.  We still had a great time though!

Such a good daddy...

Party Poopers

The boys were so tired from Ariah's birthday and Mimi and Papa's visit that they conked out!


Mimi and Papa's Visit

Mimi and Papa came to visit so that they could be here for Ariah's birthday.  We had so much fun playing and hanging out with them.

The cute dresses Mimi made for Ariah's birthday present:

Happy 1st Birthday Ariah!

I can't believe our baby girl is a year old already! Time is just flying by! We are so blessed to have her in our lives.  She is full of fiery spunk, focused and determined.  I think her party turned out really cute and she really enjoyed getting to be the center of attention. 

The birthday girl:
Fun with the guests:
Ariah is ready for her cake!
She wasn't sure what to think about it so she stuck her finger in it and tasted it...
And she must have liked it because she immediately picked up the whole thing and shoved it in her mouth...
One BIG bite!
All messy:
Time to open her presents:

Planning for Ariah's birthday...

I love planning for my kids' birthday parties.  I think it is so much fun picking a theme and making decorations, and games, and the cake.  Here is a preview to Ariah's first birthday party.  Her favorite stuffed animal is a Minnie Mouse so I made it a Minnie Mouse party.
