Caroline's Cupcake Celebration!

These pictures are in random order...surprise surprise! :) Miss Wiggles trying to get back to the party after posing with Aunt Cara and Uncle Chris- this picture should be with the other Atlanta pics below.

Giving daddy a chocolate cake kiss

At home on the night of her actual birthday Brad and I gave Caroline her first birthday cake- she wasn't a fan of chocolate or strawberry cake. She had just finished her dinner and we had to do it kind of late since daddy didn't get home until after 7:00, so it wasn't a huge success. But it was fun, and the memories are documented! We have video of her not liking this cake...maybe another post. :)

We spent the day of her birthday with our friends Mary Ellen and Rachel. We met at our original lunch spot- Chick fil a. Mary Ellen gave Caroline an Elmo dvd for her trip to GA and a fun Santa Claus book. Caroline loves them!

*On a little side note....after we played and ate at Chick fil a we went for a walk around the shopping center we were in and played outside by the nice fountain they have. Well anyone that knows how BUSY Caroline is knows that you must keep your eyes on her at all times or fun things may end up in her mouth...well they did. Caroline officially smoked or "ate" her first cigarette butt on her birthday!! YUCK!!! I was appalled! Poor thing didn't know what she was getting herself into. Luckily, there was no harm done. A little celebration on her 1st birthday! What's next??

Turned forward in her car seat for the first time

Here are some pictures to recap the wonderful day we spent with friends and family in Atlanta celebrating Caroline's 1st birthday. She was the perfect birthday girl and was a very gracious hostess! She loved her party and we are so thankful for all of you who made it happen. The pictures upload in reverse order, so if you want the true order of events you'll have to start at the bottom and go up. :)

In awe of all her new gifts! Thank you everyone!!

Nana Deb and Niki made an amazing video of pictures from her 1st year. I am not sure there was a dry eye in the room....I can't believe how fast she has grown up!

Her very own cupcake!

Mmmmm....she likes it!

She REALLY likes it!! And daddy does too.... :)

Not finished yet...

I think she devoured as much as her little tummy could handle

Marshmallows are her new favorite treat

Greeting her friends and family

Uncle Ben and Aunt Sarah

The cupcake spread- smore's cupcakes, strawberry cupcakes, pumpkin apple spice cupcakes, fruit pizza cupcakes, frozen strawberry cupcakes. I think everyone was on a sugar high afterwards!

I love my Aunt Nik!

I tried all day long to get a video to upload and it just didn't happen. So after days and days of getting this post will have to do w/o the video.
