Party Prep

Planning and decorating for a first birthday party is time-consuming enough in itself. Trying to do it with two little ones crawling and pushing toys all over the house just adds to the chaos! :) 

But we had a great time doing it all! With very minimal stress. Which is the best part! I thoroughly enjoyed planning every bit of this party, and enjoyed the actual party that much more. But you'll see pictures of that later. This post is intended for me to have personal picture reminders of James and Mattie Rose's one and only first birthday party.
