Full House!

Today we had the last of Samantha's birthday parties.  We hosted a party for our playgroup, and had a TON of people over.  In total, I think we had 14 moms PLUS all of their children.  It was pretty packed...and pretty loud.  But we had a blast.  It was so great to celebrate with all of our friends and we even got to meet a newborn little baby.  So adorable!!

After Samantha's party as I was trying to get her to take a nap, the doorbell rang with a delivery.  It was the UPS man delivering a brand new Radio Flyer wagon from Grandpa.  Samantha could hardly contain her excitement so I set to assembling it right away.  It took me about 30 minutes to put together and Samantha was right there next to me the entire time!  Probably just wishing me to hurry the heck up.  As soon as I finished I plopped her in and we headed out.  She had a BLAST!  We went around the block twice and she just had the greatest time.  During our walk we ran into a neighbor who happened to almost start a photography business a while back.  Who knew!  She offered to snap a couple of pictures and they are stunning!  She offered to take family photos one day and I definitely want to take her up on that.  I could see us using her a lot.  (If she is willing, of course!)

Although I am sad all her parties are over, I must admit the time to relax and not stress over planning is going to be really nice!

Happy Birthday Samantha!!!!!!

This morning at 12:47am Samantha turned one!  It it so hard to believe that its been a year since she's been born.  It has been such an amazing year and I just feel so blessed to be her mommy.  She is so amazing!  Happy Birthday Samantha.

First off, I have some pictures from her one year/Easter portraits this morning.

^^they liked this one so much they had me sign a release because the manager wants to use it as a display in the store!!
I could post a million more but I'll spare you and post some from her party on Saturday!
