Rylie's First Birthday

A year ago from yesterday, we were blessed to have sweet little Rylie Jane join this crazy family.  I can't believe it's already been a year.

Everyday, she grows more and more and not just in size, but also personality and beauty and intelligence.  She's our little miracle.

Yesterday was her very first birthday and it was bittersweet.  I'm really excited for her to grow but I also would like to keep her my little baby forever.

Yesterday, Ben and Sydney helped me make her birthday cakes.  It was a lot of fun, and the cakes turned out great.  Can you tell the kids were on sprinkle duty?

Last night, I ordered a few pizzas, Torren, Shawn's Parents, Terry, Morgan and the girls came over, and we ate, opened presents, and had cake and ice cream.  It was a wonderful evening.

Also, because it was Valentine's Day, valentines and candy were exchanged.  Lots of kids with sugar highs here.

After presents came cake time!


Rylie did not like getting dirty and I don't think she was a fan of the frosting.  She loved the ice cream though.

How do you clean this up?  They need to be cleaned up just to get in the bath!

Yup, cake in the bathtub...  Kinda looks like poo.

After most of the company left, I put together Rylie's new garden.  It took quite a while, but it's really cool, and all of the kids like it.

I think we had a wonderful evening and a great way to celebrate little Rylie's birthday.  Tomorrow, we have another birthday party for sweet Rylie with the whole family.
