Juniper turned 1 last Tuesday, but we decided to have her party on a Saturday so that more family could come. While we really missed having this party in Portland with all our buddies, we were blessed to have a lot of family here to celebrate with us. Here are a few pictures from the day!
|A photo from every month of Juni's first year. This is still hanging in our window...|
|Forrest made the amazing poster. Notice the juniper bush with a golden 1. Pure awesome.|
|Monkey Banana Cake & smash cake|
|This little area had small pieces of golden paper that people could use to write memories, prayers or wishes for Juniper. Then they could clip the wishes to the gold tinsel (getting our money's worth there) with a baby clothespin.|
|My dad decorated this amazing onesie.|
|Of course, we had beans for dinner. Also, she's started holding her chin like this. Cracks us up.|
|Time for cake?|
|Hmm...what is this?|
|I'm not so sure I like it...|
|...but I'll play with it!|
After this came the meltdown. It's hard work being the center of attention.
All in all, the party was simple but so special. We had a blast.
PS: Look at Fran eyeing the carnage in that last picture. :)
