We tried to keep everything simple,
so that our focus would be on Elise
and her first year of life.
We kicked things off
with a special birthday breakfast.
Hubs made Elise a birthday ring
from a slice of Douglas fir.
I made a timeline of Elise's first year.
(Can you tell I'm a teacher?!)
Friends and family came over
for a picnic lunch.
Elise's birthday treat -
I tried to make the recipe healthier
by using organic cookies and pudding
and homemade whipped cream. ;)
The party favors were
mini wooden spoons and whisks.
My gift to Elise was a doll I made
from a Weir Crafts kit.
Hubs' gift was his childhood wagon
that he slightly modified (of course!).
It was a VERY good day!
