Life of the Party!

I am so behind on blog posts! I can't believe Macy's party was over 2 weeks ago and I'm just now posting pictures! I've got to get caught up!

We had her party on her actual birthday, Saturday the 13th. It was at our house and started at 5:00. We had sandwiches, presents and then cake!

Here's the birthday girl! My mother-in-law monogrammed her shirt, sister-in-law made her cupcake bow and I found her pettiskirt on BabySteals.com about 4 months ago!

Our party guests

Mommy and Macy

The set-up

Macy's cake. I found her partyware online; it was baby girl animals and since Macy loves animals I thought it was appropriate:-)

Ready to open her presents!

Cake time! We definitely have a sweet tooth!

The damage! Macy's cake was Piglet since she absolutely loves him.

A few things I didn't get pictures of were her sign in table where her guests left her birthday messages on scrapbook pages that I put in her scrapbook after the party. And, we had home movies playing starting from the day she was born.

We had a great time and loved getting to celebrate Macy's first year. I can't say enough about the blessing she is to us!

One Year Stats

Last Saturday, Macy girl turned 1! She actually gave Mommy and Daddy a present that morning and slept until 9:15!! When she did wake up, we went into her room singing Happy Birthday and sang it to her all throughout the day (we sang it so much that she even started "singing" it! It sounded like the actual thing at times!)

I'll have to get all my pictures together and do another post from her party.

Here's your one year stats, MC:

  • 15 lbs 14 oz (1st %)
  • 27.5 inches (moved up to the 9th %)
  • sleeping 8:30 - 8
  • still hanging on to that morning nap
  • walking everywhere!
  • love putting on Mommy's lip gloss
  • eating EVERYTHING!
  • still enjoying your baby dolls, balls and Piglet
  • starting to show some separation anxiety at times
  • in size 2 shoe
  • size 6-9 month clothes
  • love to be cheered for (Mommy and Daddy cheer for Macy when she puts her cup on the table rather than throw it on the floor! She eats this up...)
  • new words: trying to say Piglet, Thank you and puppy.
Happy Birthday, sweet Macy Caroline! You are a joy and we have had so much fun this first year. Can't wait to see what all the Lord has in store for you and your big personality;-)

We love you!

Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!

Meet Laverne and Shirley!

My sister-in-law and I were having a hard time coming up with costume ideas for the girls and she came up with the great idea to use Laverne and Shirley! It was perfect (mainly because their costumes were super easy!) My mother-in-law showed us how to make their skirts and we pinned letters on their sweaters. They were too cute!

Here's Macy at the church's Fall Fest. I think she was a little overwhelmed!

One quick family picture

Macy and cousin Mallory, the prettiest angel I've ever seen!

Daddy and Macy

We ended up taking the kids trick or treating through a neighborhood and they had a great time! Macy "walked" up to a few of the doors and got Mommy some chocolate;-)

Saturday night, Macy and I went to a Fall Fest at my parents' church (Daddy was at the Ranger's game ;-)

One last thing, we didn't stay at the church very long (it was a little chaotic) but I did get a quick video of Macy "playing" at one of the booths...
