Charlotte's 1st birthday party!!

After a month of planning and crafting, and a whole day baking cake pops, the day finally arrived....Charlotte's 1st birthday party! The party could not have gone better, I only wish it would have lasted longer. We blinked and it was over, sorta like our wedding. And almost the same size as our wedding....32 adults and 18 kids! And Charlotte did great. She only had a 45 minute nap that morning and somehow lasted the entire time without having a breakdown. It was the perfect day!
