mary brooke's birthday

a couple weekends ago, james and i headed home and got to celebrate MB's first birthday party! she is the cutest. thing. ever. james says i say that about every one of her pictures, but she's the smiliest baby ever. too cute.

so emily is one of those natural party planners. anything she does ends up gor-geous. put her and grace together and they're ready for a magazine shoot. seriously. they can throw stuff together and it turn out perfect. and mary brooke's bunny birthday party was nothing short of picture perfect.

perfect tablescape and party favors

i love the tissue paper pompoms in the tree! so whimsical

homemade strawberry cake was amazing and how cute is that cake topper?!

bunny marshmellows!

this was one of my favorite things - the picture tree. em printed out pictures from mary brooke's first year and grace threaded them onto string to hang in the tree. at the bottom, grace added these awesome hanging vases to weigh it down a bit. it was so pretty! and so fun to look back and see how much she's changed.

MB loved the tractor! (although she didn't ride by herself :)
i wish i'd gotten a better picture of this quilt that sabrina made for her - it's absolutely precious! you've got to have a good friend that will make a quilt for you. that's big.

her first bit of sugar!!

definitely a big hit

and sweet family came all the way to see her

aren't emily and grace impressive? and we couldn't have asked for a prettier day. everything was perfect and we were so glad we got to be there to celebrate mary brooke!
