Birthday Party!

On Sunday we had some family and friends over to celebrate Peighton turning one on Wednesday. We have been preparing for the last week and a half or so. Andy cleaning, organizing and cooking; me crafting, baking and more crafting!

We were going to have a giant party with about 50 people, but then decided to just keep it low key and at our home. A Peighton gets older and makes more and more friends, I figure the parties will start to actually be more for the kids and not for us adults visiting and having beverages :)

I love owls for Peighton, so it was a no brainer that I would throw her a "Look Who's turning One" party.
I found an adorable Etsy seller who had the perfect images, so I purchased the files from her and printed things out myself.

Once I had the invites picked out, I had to have Peighton's party outfit made. I didn't get any good ones of her in it, so we will try and have a photo shoot on Wednesday so you all can see how cute it is! Check out Leo & Lyla on Facebook!

Peighton reading her new Elmo book from Auntie Becca
Pinterest is amazing and the devil at the same time. Check out what I came up with:

Many, many, many hours spent on my Cricut machine. It says "Owl love you forever, Owl like you for always, As long as I'm living, My baby you'll be."
