Abby's Birthday Party - Part II

At the beginning of August, I was quite flustered with Abigail's First Birthday party planning. If you have a bad memory like me and can't remember, you can read about it here. I wanted everything to be just perfect. Afterall, you only turn ONE once in your life.

We hosted party number one in Florida and had a blast! Such wonderful memories with such great friends. Party number two was in Maryland on Abby's actual birthday. We were so thankful to be here, in my hometown, with family and friends to celebrate this special day!

Abby was one lucky birthday girl. Who wouldn't love two parties? Two cakes? More presents? I can't believe I was so anxious about how all the planning would work out. I need to remind myself more often that God is in control. Everything worked out perfectly and Abby was such a happy birthday girl!

Abby had such a fun time!

Abby's new friend, "Inch."

I love the giant caterpillar! How fun is that? And those pictures of a very newborn Abby down in that post there - adorable!

Thanks for commenting on my photos this week! You should totally join ramblings and photos scavenger hunt, it's tons of fun and it really makes you look at your photos in a new way. I've really been enjoying it. Hope to see you there!

That cake is awesome! And, good thing in your new house you'll have enough space for "Inch." Can you just imagine where that would go in your current house? LOL! And, take number 4 was definitely worth 1,2,&3...that's a great family photo!
