Aubrey's Birthday

This past Saturday was my niece's first birthday party. WOW!!! It has flown by and I am only the aunt. I can't imagine how Kali feels! For those of you who don't know me I have two sisters. I am the middle child. My younger sis became a mom on July 10 last year. Aubrey has been such a blessing to our family!!! She is a total over achiever! She started walking at 10 months! Anyways, I could go all day but here are some of the highlights.

The party was at our parents house so that the other kiddos could swim. We ate some yummy hot dogs and hamburgers and watched Aubrey tear into her cupcake. How cute is that cake!?! This pic is when they had just sat it in front of her. She started barely picking at it and then mom gave her a fork which she thought was so cool! I never knew how many adults could be completely entertained watching a little girl try to eat cake for like 15 minutes. OOOHHH AHHHH! !!! You would've thought that the paparazzi were at the house from all of the flashes. LOL! After that the older kids got into the pool. Well, my dad and sister ended up jumping in clothes on to get one of them after being in for about 5 minutes. I took pics but Kali would kill me if I posted them here.
So, Kent and I gave Aubrey a Little Tikes slide. How cute is this!?! I remember having one when we were kids and loved it! Kent and my dad put it together so we decided to let her practice. She kept putting her feet down and she kept getting stuck. So how many adults does it take for a one year old to go down the slide you ask-3. 1- to hold her hands, 2- to hold her feet, and 3- to catch her at the bottom. It was a lot of fun! (I don't know how to rotate the pic so we will just have to deal.)

Then we went inside so that she could open up the rest of her presents. Well, so Kali could open up the rest of her presents while she chewed on her new book and tried to drink out of her new-empty- sippy cup.

All in all it was a great day!!! Happy Birthday to the cutest one year old in the world!!!

Yay! (about the photobook)

When I posted about it I actually thought about you because I knew you probably had a ton of pics from Aubrey's party that would make a great keepsake!

If you get a chance, post a pic :)
