On Saturday we celebrated with our family and friends for Charlie's first birthday. We are very blessed with a big family and wonderful groups of friends. Some of our new friends that I met from blogging and twitter attended as well, Steph and Amy! We are thankful to everyone who came and missed those who could not attend.
I planned for months. I worked on projects and crafts for weeks. Gary and I spent 2 whole days running around and gathering all the essentials to make the party a success. The hard work paid off. Everyone had fun. Lots of laughter was heard and I hope we did not disturb the library too much! Gary's Mimi even called us the next day and left a voice mail stating "The birthday party was wonderful. It was one of the best parties that I have ever been too. I was entertained the entire time. Thank you again for hosting a great day!" Since she is 89 and has been to a few shin-digs in her day, I will take that as a wonderful compliment.
You think with all this fun that the day would have ended there, right? Well, you are wrong, haha. We went to an impromptu after party at our friend Stef and Grants house. It was so nice of them to continue the fun at their house. We brought over yummy extra food and hung out until almost 11 pm!
We are truly blessed with the great people that we know and love. Happy Birthday Charlie. WE ALL LOVE YOU!
