We had a really amazing week and Nikol was kind enough to let me share these special memories on her blog. As most of you know Hailey turned 1…what?! How did this tiny little peanut turn into a funny, smart, beautiful, active, energetic, independent, loving little girl. I’m so lucky to be her Momma. Not every day is magical, but when it is, it counts for 1,000 days.
Then Saturday was the day of her big party! She woke up with a pretty nasty cold and was teething but she didn’t let that get her down. For the party I got a bunch of ideas off Pinterest. I made this Happy Birthday Hailey banner, the heart banners, and the 12 month photo collage. On the dessert table there was Hailey’s smash cake made egg free at the last minute by my amazing Mom (we found out Hailey was allergic to eggs), chocolate covered strawberries also made by my Mom, my Stepmom’s famous brownies, funfetti cupcakes for the guests (also my Mom), some golden oreos and circus cookies. Then I made some watermelon sangria and lemonade. The day before my wonderful Stepmom helped me make all the food - there were mini quiche, broccoli salad, fruit salad, deviled eggs and a yogurt parfait bar. Nothing would have come together without my Mom and Paula so thank you thank you thank you!!
Thanks for letting me be sentimental Nikol ;).
