First Birthday a Wild Success, All Rejoice


The party was fun. I'm too tired to think of anything more descriptive than that. It was also a heckuva lot of planning and work for only 2 hours, but it was worth it. Jellybean thus far is enjoying having her grandparents and uncle here, since it's more people to point and babble to.
The Learning Tower that my dad built turned out great, as seen in the pic below. The Little Princess likes to push it more than stand in it, though, I think. I picked up some pots and pans and other kid-sized cooking stuff for her, so we'll be ready to make gourmet meals side by side, sans screaming or back pain, in no time.
She got a lot of great stuff, books and toys, things that light up and things to cuddle. Aunt J got her an awesome doggy, Aunt M got her the fabulous remote control car that was a big hit with both Jelly and Cade, as well as Grandpa. My mum brought a creepy dolly that was mine when I was a baby, which made me tear up. Aunt Chrissy gave me money so that I can go buy some good walking shoes for The Bean. She got a pink china tea set (every girl needs one), some Yo Gabba stuff, a soccer ball and hammer (every girl should have one of those as well), and some clothes. She had lots of fun, and was VERY disappointed when everyone left.
Now it's back to the grind for a few days as my mum hangs out with Jelly and my dad works on destroying my house (he's ripping out the totally cheesy and useless electric fireplace, to give me some more shelves and drawers for the 874 toys and books).

Glad the party was a success! You should sell that electric fireplace (they usually sell b/t $100-200) then you could buy another 874 toys and books :)
