Party Time

We had a great time celebrating Elanors 1st birthday this past weekend. Her actual bday was the day after Thanksgiving, which we enjoyed by getting our Christmas tree and decorating the house. We had a simple party at our house that Sunday with family. A few people ended up not getting to make it, so we had lots of leftover food and dessert. We all had a fun afternoon celebrating our sweet girl turning 1. She and Sarah both loved having their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and a cousin come over for a visit.

Food was simple. We grilled and had chips, apple slices and cheerios. For dessert I decided to try something new.

I love the taste and texture of cupcakes, but the liners drive me crazy bc I feel like they’re so messy & crumbly. Thank you pinterest for solving my ridiculous avoidance of delicious cupcake goodness. Enter the cake-filled cone. Conecake?! Cupconecake?! I don’t know, all that is certain is they were delicious! Although Stephen mentioned they would have been even better with chocolate in the bottom.

I also madeĀ a gallery/kids art wall in the kitchen. I look forward to Elanor having her pieces hanging on the wall with Sarah’s :)

That, or we are both too tired and busy with kiddos to blow dry our hair most mornings

Stephen cried and it made Addison upset, so she joined in too ;)

Sarah made this face after she discovered that I ate her lunch (which I thought she was done with).
(In case you didn’t know mom lunches are usually their kids leftovers)

Sarah was more than willing to teach/help Elanor open her birthday gifts

One of Sarah’s MANY desserts. I found 3 or 4 cones with just the icing licked off. Silly kid.

The chocolate icing was a HUGE hit!

She was the ideal 1st birthday cake eater. Made a delicious mess in her hair, ears, nose and all through her fingers.

We had a wonderful day with our sweet girls. In another 3 months we will be celebrating Sarah turning 3 and then I know I’ll blink and Ella will be 2!

We live a crazy beautiful life.
