Sawyer's Winter One-Derland

We had Sawyer's birthday party on her actual birthday since it was on a Saturday.  Fortunately, we had lots of help getting ready on Friday night...I could never have done this all by myself!  While we were busy crafting, the girls were busy driving Lori nuts and taking over her bed.  She was a good sport.

We started the day off with family pictures...what better way to spend a birthday?!?  Thank you to Barry's cousin Kim for doing an awesome job!

In hindsight...this was probably not the best scheduling decision because when we  left to go take pictures, my mom & Becky had quite the to do list.  Or maybe it was a good idea??? ; )

They were soooo helpful and they party was pretty much ready to go by the time we got home.  The weather was not the least bit wintery, but we had a lot of snowflakes and sparkles going on inside.

Becky put together this display of all of Sawyer's art work...

It may or may not still be hanging in my kitchen.  Along with her snowflake month pictures......
Since the weather was so nice, we got to spend a lot of time outside.  Sawyer got some fun new toys, so all the kids had a blast playing.

After a seriously tear jerking slide show that Barry made for Sawyer - I am hoping to get it uploaded onto YouTube so I can put it on here - we enjoyed some chili.  And then it was time for cake...

I think she would have sat there and eaten the whole thing if we would have let her.  She LOVED it.

As did Lori...

How cute is that red picnic table?!?!  Barry made that for Sawyer for her birthday.  We had lots of family and friends join us to celebrate Sawyer, many of whom traveled pretty far to be with us, she is one blessed little girl!

And since she ate almost half of her cake...she was wired and ready to open presents!

My mom got me and my sisters all life-sized Ragedy Ann dolls for our 1st birthdays.  Every time we are at my parents' house, the girls always point and want to play with them.  So, she has carried on the tradition and gotten mini ones for the grand-daughters.  I don't know what she will do if anyone ever has a boy!

I think she really enjoyed herself!  The party turned out great - thank you to everyone who came and everyone who helped, we had a wonderful time celebrating the best gift ever!!
