Pink and Gold

Well, Tessa went and did it.  She turned ONE YEAR OLD!  We celebrated one day early with her pink and gold party!  All I have to say, is that she wasn't so sure of all the eyes on her.  She didn't have a bad time, but she certainly didn't seem to be having a great time! I think I got one picture with her smiling!  It was our usual crowd at birthday parties, close family friends, and grandparents.

We had cake, chicken nuggets ( always a hit with parents and kids) mac and cheese and a few other things.  I didn't get a bounce house because the weather was not supposed to be that great, but it ended up being beautiful, but really soggy, so we just had all the kids in the house.  I'll tell you, 9 kids in one house is too many.  When all of them left, it was amazingly quiet in my house!:)

Tessa was NOT a fan of her cake.  I won't take it personally even though I made her cake! This is the first party that I decided to make all the cakes.  Adam tried to convince me not to spend an arm and a leg on something I can make " Just a good" his words not mine, every year.  For some reason, this was the year I decided to do it.  I think they came out alright, though I'm not sure anyone would have told me if the cake was terrible!:)

She loved opening presents, when her brothers would let her.  They woke up that day SO excited about her party asking if they could open her presents and blow out her candle.  So I of course said they could.  They basically tore through packages not even looking at what was inside. This freaked Tessa out a bit.  She was so over stimulated with all the kids and noise, and people.  She just isn't used to having all the attention!

I can't believe that my baby girl is one year old.  Needless to say, I can't wait to see the little toddler she grows into, and she really shows us another side to her personality every single day.  She is silly and dramatic, and I fear she might be a rough and tumble, princess.  But I wouldn't have it any other way!  Happy Birthday sweet baby girl.  We all love you Tessie Paige!

There will be a more in depth one year post tomorrow after we get her stats from the dr. So never fear.
