We had Madeline's first birthday party Friday night. It turned out super cute. I had been planning a ladybug theme for about 6 months and then my sister mailed Madeline the cutest birthday outfit and I changed everything. I also had some pretty cute ideas for games with the ladybug theme and think it will be much more fun next year when she may be able to do some of them. Anyway, she had a blast and we had a pretty good turnout especially considering it was the week after Christmas.
We sent these home as favors as with the balls. I had them made at our local bakery and they were delicious!!!
I stole this idea from pinterest and loved it. Everyone wrote down a sweet wish for Madeline. I think I'll do it every birthday!

This should probably be first but this is Madeline "helping" decorate. She was very "helpful" on the day of her party!
The workers...My dad doing dishes, Terry making quesadillas, and Haley doing something...I couldn't have done her party without all of their help. My mom was probably taking this picture.
Not sure who is more VIP...Nana and Papaw
Or Justin Bieber!
Madeline wasn't quite sure what to think when we started singing and I handed her a cake!
Still a little unsure
It took her a second but she eventually picked her whole cake up and hugged it!

I couldn't have asked for a better day for her party. It was 75 and sunny so we were able to set up tables outside. Her party turned out great and we are so thankful to have such wonderful family and friends who love our sweet girl!
