Ella Grace's First Birthday party - March 27, 2010
I'm finally getting around to writing a post about Ella Grace's First birthday. I have so many wonderful photographs from friends and family, I was just waiting to get them all gathered up together. The day turned out beautiful and sunny. The spread included BBQ with Mac-n-cheese from our favorite BBQ spot, Macs. We also couldn't forget everyone's favorite....a Chick-fil-a nugget platter! Ella Grace's godmother made her special cupcakes with spring flowers on them. All of Ella Grace's buddies were there enjoying the food, sunshine and bubbles. The adults enjoyed tubs of beer and wine. Ella Grace wasn't so sure about being the center of attention. We put a darling birthday hat on her (that she surprisingly didn't try to pull off) and sang happy birthday to her. She was very hesitant to eat the cupcake...I think stage fright took over, but as soon as everyone cleared the room and I took off her birthday hat, she went to town on a jumbo sized cupcake made just for her! A good time was had by all. As soon as the last guest left we layed her down for a power nap and after that....PRESENTS! I must say, the wrappings were her favorite part. Thank you to all our family and friends that helped us celebrate this miraculous day!
