Who would have thought that planning a first birthday party would be so labor-intensive? What to serve...what to give as favors...do we need hats...do we need big AND small plates...etc, etc, etc. Whew...it is fun, though. I sent out the invites today. They ended up really cute. I'm going to attempt to make the cake myself. I did a "practice cake" a week or so ago and it turned out pretty good. I figure polka-dots couldn't be that hard...and it wasn't. I'm not saying it looks professional, but it definitely looks good enough!
Todd and I went on a mini-vacation this past weekend...up to St. Louis and saw a Cardinals game. It was really good...they won, had a couple of home runs, and a fight. Our plan was to see 2 games, but the temp really dropped and the Monday night game was supposed to be 35 degrees...NO THANK YOU! So, we headed back a day early...which worked out really well. Holly had just delivered her little girl in Oxford. I had to go pick Presley up in Batesville, so we just scooted right on over to Oxford and met baby JoAnna. Who would have thought itsy-bitsy Holly would have an 8 lb 10 oz child...a week early! Despite a rough delivery, JoAnna is a beautiful baby.
Here are some pics of Presley playing outside today. She is so sweet!
