3 days and counting......

I've been a little distracted these past few days because i've been planning Kennedy's first birthday party. I know you should to these things like months in advance but I'm not that kind of girl! I mean, I just got out the last of the invitations on Friday and the party is this Saturday! Talking about last minute!
So, 3 days and counting until Kennedy's first birthday party! (or should I say two because Saturday is the party and I really can't count that day because everything has to be done before then!) I have so many emotions about her turning one! It's been such a roller coaster! People keep saying "aw......aren't you sad?" and I reply "well not really!.....To me it's bitter sweet!"
I guess to me it's easier because she can walk, semi feed herself, drink out of a cup, tv will keep her attention a little longer, say some words (she loves the word NO, that's because mommy uses it A LOT!), points at what she wants and many more things. So, i'm really not sad about her turning one I look at as a hurtle has been jumped! It's a huge step in being a mommy.
Now on the other hand, the party is whats difficult. Who to invite without making it a huge ordeal but not keeping it to low key, what theme to use, what to eat, the cake (do we have to do icecream???), where to have it without worrying about things getting messed up and try to figure out a time so she want be cranky. I'm telling you it's a lot to think about!...or should I say STRESS about!
First off invitations. I went to walmart and just had some printed with her picture on them. They turned out pretty cute.These pics might be a little blurry because my camera doesn't take the best pics! Sorry!
I decided just to go with the first birthday theme. I really wanted to do something like princess but then I started thinking what will I do when she gets older? (I was thinking way to far into it!)
I went to the ritz camera store and you can print pictures there and I made this cool little sign.
This is my most favorite part about her party is........her outfit! I love it!


Just keep Kennedy in your prayers. She has came down with a terrible cold and want her to be well for her party! Thanks!

I always do things at the last minute as well. Kennedy is obviously going to have a great first birthday! And she's going to look adorable too! I love that little outfit.

I really like how you did her picture on the invitation...what a fun idea.

I'll definitely say a prayer for her to feel better and for everything to go smoothly! And from an outside perspective...try not to stress. Kennedy will love her party even if things don't go perfectly, and she's the only one that matters anyway!

1st birthday parties are VERY stressful, but soo much fun! I'm with you, I like this age much more than newborn. It's a whole lot easier! :)

Kennedy's birthday outfit is absolutely adorable! I love it love it! Too bad we don't live closer...I could hook her up with the P man!
