Opening Gifts and Crashing with the Bear

Laken had fun playing with the paper and gifts for about two seconds. Dad tried to entertain her and the other kids with the big bear while I opened the rest up for her. After playing for a bit, Laken was tuckered out and snuggled up to her new bear with her bottle. After that she finished off the day with a 2nd wind before taking a quick nap. Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate her special day!

Little Cupcake

Laken enjoyed her birthday cupcake. She started out with small bites and eating it so daintfully (like she always eats)....but by the end she licked the plate and ended up with frosting all over her face. So precious!

Party Time

Laken's 1st Birthday Party Pre-function

Thank goodness for all of the help that we had from Aunt Dusty and Grandma Ivy to set up for the birthday party. Laken looked precious in her "Im the Birthday Girl" outfit with a pretty special pink skirt and headband. Here is the house before the guests arrived and a quick family photo.
