E's First B-Day Bash & Reporting for Doody!

I am still crawling out of the aftermath of Eliza's first birthday party! A day later I am still exhausted from all of the fun!! The party was fantabulous. It went so fast it is still a huge blur to me. Pete and I were so busy we didn't get too many pics. I know my dad got some great shots so I will post more when I can.

Here is E in her cake outfit. Yes! She pulled a My Super Sweet 16 First Birthday and had a costume change. Hopefully I will get a picture of her in her party dress on here soon.



Enjoying the cake daddy made her- recipe courtesy of Christy!



After a nap she opened some gifts.


and gave her butterfly rocker a whirl!

Pete and I admired the clever eco-friendly wrapping done by Alessia's daddy. Overall it was an awesome day.


Juror No. 1234567
Tomorrow I must report to Jury Duty. I am used to dealing with doody of a whole different kind. Pete is going to be a work-at-home daddy with Eliza. I am going to miss my little E!

Great party pics! She looks so cute - I love that rocker. Can't wait to see more.
Ugh - Jury Duty!! Or maybe you are happy to go? :) I never went - I could get out of it claiming I was a stay at home mom with no child care! IT works and gets you off the list for 5 years! (at least in Florida)
