what a perfect day.
family, friends, food and my baby turning one.
I must say I can't help myself when it comes to parties.
I tend to go all out and boy did we go all out for Fin's first birthday.
face painting, bubbles, a bounce house, balloon animals, clown noses
and lots of sugar.
I couldn't help but reminisce about Genevieve's first birthday. My how time is flying.
I made the balloon banner using this tutorial
it wasn't hard but tedious and time consuming.
Joe and I blew up 72 balloons. We both had major headaches afterwards.
my sweet neighbor, Laura made all the desserts: cake, cupcakes and cookies
they were so yummy.
and what circus is complete without popcorn and cotton candy
Genevieve was the "ringmaster"
face painting was done by the amazing: athena
grammy and grandad
there is just something magical about bubbles
I made my headband using this tutorial
we had about 60 of our good friends and family come and help us celebrate Finley's first year of life
here is just a few of them...
Happy Birthday Finley James.
We love you.
