This weekend we celebrated Mary Elizabeth's first birthday. We had a wonderful party with our family and friends.
This is ME on her actual birthday with her petit four
Mary Elizabeth's pink pinwheel party!!

Uncle Mark and ME
Sarah and Leighton
It was so nice to have my Paw-Paw come to the party...we didn't get to see him at Christmas, and I was missing him!
Mary Elizabeth (and the other kids) had sooo much fun swinging outside! She laughed and laughed - the higher, the better
Owen also likes to live on the edge...jumping off of the porch
Benjamin was very serious about blowing this pinwheel...he sat there in his own world for at least 2 or 3 minutes blowing and blowing. It was very funny!
time to sing Happy Birthday
playing in the cake...with a little help from Mommy, Daddy and even Aunt Emily

Mommy and Mary Elizabeth having a snuggle...this is her second outfit since her first white one was covered in PINK icing (and surprisingly, it all came out in the wash!)

We have been soo blessed with Mary Elizabeth, our sweet baby girl. She is extremely strong-willed, laid-back (when she wants to be); she has a great sense of humor (she thinks it is hilarious when I fuss Benjamin for anything), is happy and in love with her Mommy, Daddy and big brother. Praise God for trusting us with this special little girl.
We love you Mary 'Lizbeth (as Ben would say)!!! Happy Birthday!
