Hadden's 1st Birthday

One of my new years resolutions was to have a fun celebration when Hadden turned one. Kids only turn one once, so celebrate we did! My favorite part of the night, of course, was us all singing "Happy Birthday" and watching our little Hadden Sky dig into her cake. I was looking forward to that part all day while I was blowing up balloons, prepping food, and hanging streamers. We served mini sirloin burgers (of course) and hot dogs with all the fixings. Everything came together and was perfect in spite of my layer cake cracking cause the layers were too thin right before the party was about to start. Thank goodness my mom and Kara brought back ups and saved my bacon. Thanks for everyones help in making it the perfect night. I have the best family and friends in the whole world! Here are some pictures:
I know this pic is blurrry...I was really struggling with my camera settings in the beginning.
Dessert table: cupcakes, doughns, rice krispie treat lollies, and Hadden's itty bitty layer cake. The balloon chandelier/fixture/jumble, I'll talk about in another post where I can blab more about the details and share some more pictures.
Fresh cut cucumber, red bell pepper and carrot dunked in Buttermilk Ranch Dip. Originally saw this idea on Pinterest...I need to head over there and share the original source, post edit.

Party people.
Blurry hovering hand.
The moment of truth.


Thanks for letting me share these pictures. Hope you're all having a good hump day!
