Today is our very own, Miss Aurora Rose's first birthday.
Yesterday we had our friends over to celebrate, and today we invited both sides of the Hub's family for a shindig.
We must be crazy, right? ;)
Well it took hours and hours of baking and tidying up beforehand , and the family party today was a bit cramped after everyone got here...but we did it!
Two birthday parties in two days, and I can honestly say that I think everyone enjoyed themselves, and Roo had a great time playing with her little friends, cousins and her gifts...of which there were, of course, TONS.
My friend took some photos of the fete on Saturday, but I haven't snagged those from her just yet...at least I managed to take a few today...so behold, my birthday girl!
|Opening her first present, it was as big as she is! I just got finished assembling it, and Roo will have her 'Princess Songs Palace' to play with tomorrow.|
|The bows on all her packages were pretty fun too...|
|She just LOVES those chubby little princesses...and now we have almost all of them!|
|My Auntie sent her a Minnie Mouse shopping cart that she was pretty into...|
|Roo got a hold of my camera and took this one herself...a budding photographer.|
|She even got to hang out with her Uncle Aleks! He lives a couple of hours away and is at university, so he hasn't been around much lately...they had a nice time together. :)|
|Aurora and her cousin Hedda playing with her 'car'...|
|I managed to get some family portraits of the Hubs and his peeps too...that's the Hubs, Roo and his siblings. Some family resemblance, huh? ;)|
|And the whole crew! The Hubs, Roo, his siblings, his parents and maternal grandparents.|
And right after I took this photo, Roo and her family happened upon a neat little game...
How flipping cute are they? I loved how they all kept playing along with her!
And that was our day today, and my darling girl's birthday.
The last year has gone by faster than I could ever imagined it could.
|She was just a few hours old here...|
It's been the best year of my life.
Happy birthday, my sweet girl. I hope you had a great weekend. I love you the most.
