Polkadotsie Party

Polka-dots in the air...
Polka-dots on the tablecloth...
Polka-dots on the cupcakes...
Polka-dots on the dot art paper to keep the older kids entertained. And polka-dots of candy buttons for the kids to take home as favors. All these polka-dots can only mean one thing...
Louisa "Polkadotsie" was having her first birthday party!!!
And we had quite the crowd with us to celebrate!
I think there were around 30 guests. I don't know what we will do if the weather is ever bad on a birthday party day. We always rely on the space in the backyard to keep our house from busting at the seams.
Big brother Rock was very helpful when it came time to blow out the candle although I'm not sure why he needed a saw and a hammer to get the job done.
Unlike her older brother who did not eat a BITE of his first birthday cake, Louisa went to town on her home-made-dairy-free-but-still-quite-tasty-if-I-do-say-so-myself-cupcake.
(Those of you who know how we like to party might also notice the absence of the traditional cheeseball. That was an intentional omission in honor of the birthday girl's dairy intolerance.)
Almost all of her gifts were polka-dotted. And super cute. Thank you fantastic guests!
This one wasn't polka-dotted and yet it was still QUITE appropriate.
This last picture is included for you to see her adorable shoes. I bought them for her before she was born. Little did I know how PERFECT they would prove to be for her big day! Happy Birthday to our sweet Polkadotsie! We love you ever so much!
