Ah, the first birthday! Is there really anything like it? Honestly, I thought I would be a little more emotional about it but I really wasn't. Well, not on the actual day, I think it's because I was so busy with the party!
Which was an interesting day to say the least. The day Addison was born it was HOT like heat advisory frosting melted off the cake my brother's family brought to celebrate hot! Addison's first birthday was not. It was a, raining, windy cold mess. We have a small house and it was crammed but we made lemonade out of lemons and it turned out to be a pretty fantastic day!
I had a professional photographer, Ashlie from Lemondrop Photography (She is amazing and totally not paying me to say that!) come in and take pictures which was not only special but so helpful! I could concentrate on the one million people in our home and actually be in some pictures instead of trying to take nice pictures.
We went with an Addison in ONEderland Theme and I think it turned out pretty cute! Since we were planning on having a large portion ::cough:: everything outside it kind of looked like ONEderland exploded in our house. Oh well! I'm sure next year we will plan everything out and I will be one million degrees! Oh Minnesota, how I love you...most of the time! :)
So here it is: Addison in ONEderland! Thanks again for everyone to came to celebrate our girl! We love you all!
