Once she calmed down, we stopped at Tim Horton's for some birthday tim bits and to pick out a doughnut for dessert. It was a beautiful day when we got home, so we played outside with Harley before she had a nap.
We woke her up from her nap to balloons in her crib which she was super unsure about. Five minutes later, she was asking to go back into her crib and absolutely loved the balloons!
Her day of course ended with a sprinkle doughnut!
We had her birthday party this past Saturday, and I think it went pretty well! I decided on an animal theme since Amelia loves animals so much. Tried to keep everything simple, but still fun. I apparently didn't take many pictures of the decorations or guests, so you will have to believe that both were cute ;)
For food, I tried to go with animal theme, so we had:
- pigs in a blanket- aka hot dogs wrapped up in crescent rolls
- worms - aka gummy worms
- animal snackers - aka animal crackers, goldfish and teddy grahams
- twigs- aka pretzels
- puppy chow- aka the most delicious thing I've ever had and wish Alison hadn't introduced me to
- We also had: fruit/veg trays, cheese and crackers, sugar cookies, cupcakes, chicken wings, and meatballs. And of course beer for the dads ;)
|Thanks for the picture Alison!|
I think the best part was how much Amelia hated everyone singing happy birthday to her! Poor girl.
Thank you to everyone who came and helped celebrate Amelia's birthday, and to those that wished her happy birthday!
