Celebrating our All-American Girl

The day after Addison's birthday, we had her first birthday party.  We invited some family and friends, and what was supposed to be a super low-key affair turned into about 35 people which was just perfect.  We had a total blast celebrating our baby girl.  We did an "All-American Girl" themed party with red, white and blue decor and an all-american, summer menu.  Jason grilled burgers and hot dogs, and we had chips and other homemade sides to go along with it.  My dad made homemade ice cream and sliced watermelon for dessert.  Despite the hot day, I think everyone had a good time.  Addie was spoiled with lots of fun toys and cute outfits, and she really ate up all the attention.  We have a blessed little girl that is loved by so many.  Thanks so much to everyone who came to celebrate this milestone in our baby's life.

A package arrived from Deb and Drew, and Addie loved the books they sent her.

At first, Ad seemed a little skeptical of her cake, but it didn't take long before she decided she was a big fan.  She sat there and methodically ate bite after bite.  I took it away before she ate too much bc I didn't want a sick baby at her birthday party.

I hung each of her months pictures up on the wall.  It was so fun to see how much she grew this year.
