Happy Birthday to Maddox!!

This is the video that I made(with lots of help from Brandi) for my daughter for her 1st birthday! We showed it today at her birthday party, and gave copies of it to friends and family who wanted it- but I wanted to share it with all of you!

I decided to make the party a cherry theme, since she's too young to be into any TV shows like the "Backyardigans" or Sesame Street or anything like that.  Maddox did really well, especially since she got a 2+ hour nap before everyone came over today.  We had a great group of family, including grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, "aunties", and playgroup friends!

Here are some pictures from the party- thanks to my sister Em, who was taking pictures while I was running around trying to make sure that everything was taken care of. 

Maddox left her hairbow in all day!

Gramps walked Mdx around

I gave her to Jamie for a little while.

My girls!  Auntie Nina, Me, Auntie Brandi!

Playing corn-hole....where did the beanbag go?

That's my cake??

oh my goodness it tastes good!

Mama and Daddy can't believe it

After presents, loving the sock monkey!
To my baby who won't read this for many many years......but who has made life so beautiful and important.  I didn't understand what unconditional love truly was until I had you.  Maddox, you are such a happy, cuddly little girl.  We are so grateful that you are smart, healthy, and active.  I can't wait until this time next year when we compare our lives then and now.  But until then...keep on screeching, dancing, itsy-bitsy-spidering, and smiling!
