Claire's Birthday

This little Angel turned one last week. I can't believe it's been one year already. We celebrated her birthday on Saturday. It was such a special day!

Claire's first stuffed animal was Minnie Mouse. She loved cuddling her and sucking on her nose. So, I thought it was only appropriate that her birthday be everything Minnie Mouse. 

The food table. We served Minnie water bottles, sandwiches with Minnie toothpicks, chips, veggies and Minnie shaped cookies. 

Minnie Mouse decorations greeted guests as they arrived.

The homemade Minnie invitations. 

Claire has so many people that love her. We had (great) grandmas, grandpas, (great) aunts, (great) uncles, (second) cousins, and neighbors come to see Claire on her special day. 


Some of Claire's cousins hanging out at the party: 





Claire got a bunch of fun, new toys from her guests. 

"ALL of this is for ME?"

Claire was great at pulling wrapping paper out of the bags. 

Claire got right to playing with all of her new toys.

Claire's cake. It was chocolate, of course. 

She knew exactly who the cake was for. See her pointing to herself? Adorable.

We sang her Happy Birthday.

I'm going to do a blog post dedicated to Claire eating her cake. Yep, you read that right. There's just way too many cute pictures to choose from. So keep an eye out for my next post.

Claire's birthday was a blast! It was a great day filled with friends and family. Thanks to everyone who helped with the planning and thanks to everyone who came--it was a special day!
