Autumn’s First Birthday

Autumn's First Birthday-19

Our little sweet Bean turned 1 just two weeks ago… how has it already been that fast?!?

We had a wonderful time with friends and family as we celebrated at home the weekend before her birthday.

It meant so much to us that our families came up to visit and celebrate, with my mom and dad traveling from Florida, my brother and sister from CT, and Price’s family from central NY and NH.

Our farm theme party had cupcakes that were decorated like apples, a veggie patch (crudite platter), muddy tracor wheels (chocolate dipped Oreos), haybales (rice krispie treats), chicken feed (popcorn), Ham and Cheese Sliders, cheese and crackers on our piggy cutting board that Price’s dad made, and chili to serve on top of corn bread muffins. We decorated with a custom made poster, some bales of hay, and burlap banners. Plus, I cut out some barnyard animals from the cricut, placed them on the bookcase that morning, and forgot to put up. Story of my life. ha!

As much as Autumn enjoyed all the action she still needed her afternoon nap so we then sang to her and cut the cake for everyone to enjoy. An hour later, she woke up happy & refreshed to tear into her wonderful, generious presents.

I really wish we had more pictures, we were just having a blast that I kept putting down the camera and enjoying it all instead of snapping pics. I always struggle with getting the right amount of pictures with everyone and being a part of the action.

Then on her actual birthday, I brought a cake with her to daycare to share with all her little buddies there. I made a golden yellow cake with a pink buttercream frosting. I heard a full (loud) report from the kids when I went to pick her up that they loved it. And got to see a little video of them singing ‘Happy Birthday to You’ in english and spanish over and over again. She was all bouncy and clapped along. She just loved being in the spotlight that day.

And just because we wanted some pictures of Autumn with some cake, I went to a local cupcake shop down the road from my office and got her a carrot cake cupcake.

We set her up with that cupcake, and her cute little birthday hat that she recieved as a gift, but she since she had just inhaled more than an avocado for dinner she wasn’t too interested in anything besides the frosting. Which worked out fine as Price and I then split it. ha!

We had such a fun time celebrating her birthday. Autumn loved the extra attention from her family, friends, and daycare buddies. Oh, the singing, she couldn’t get enough of the singing. Oh little kids, they kill me!
