I'm glad we're having her party before her actual birthday, because I certainly went a little overboard with this shindig and I have been so consumed with crafts and baking and planning that I have not had much time to reflect on the fact that my baby is one year old (yet somehow, I have managed to think about it enough to cry already on several occasions). I'm glad that today we will have a great celebration, and then things will die down some and I can have some time to think about what a milestone this, not just for Ellie, but for us as new parents, as well. This party today is as much about celebrating our survival of Year One of parenting as it is about Ellie's first year of life, to be honest. Both are great accomplishments!
But there will be time for reflection this week. Today, it's all about fun at Ellie's Alice-in-Wonderland-themed tea party. Or, if you will, Elizabeth Alice in ONEderland! Hopefully, it will be a great time for all. We've already gotten into the festive spirit and can hardly wait for our guests to join us.
The Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, Alice, White Rabbit and Queen of Hearts are ready to par-tay!
