Princess Maddness!!!

My final is over now so I can reconnect with the world and what better way to do that than to blog!! Maddy's 1st Birthday was on the 7th, so I'm a little behind, but I'm all about stringing on Birthdays for as long as possible! Anyone with me!?!! So our little monkey turned ONE!!! Already!! We still can't believe it! She seems so little still. I remember thinking that Kaden was such a big boy at one, but then I look back and nope, he was a little guy! So we had "Princess Mania" at our house. Besides the lights of the Christmas tree, our house glowed a pretty pink! We enjoyed the company of our family and friends, ate some grub food and enjoyed Maddy in the spot light. Now for the best part...pictures galore!! Bear with me, she only turns ONE once! :)Our Princess decor. It was hard to capture all of it, but you get the point, PRINCESS!!
She got this chair from Justin, Andrea and McKenna and immediately she started kicking her feet and rocking out. Who needs music! It was the perfect 1st gift because she had a darling chair she could open her presents from. Thanks guys!This present opening is serious stuff Maddy!! She ripped some of the packages open with lots of help from her cousins and big bro. Thanks!

I made my first Birthday cake, and I have to say, I was pretty proud of it! It was red velvet with cream cheese frosting. It was completely gone by the end of the night, so I think it was a hit! (And yes those are jewels! Like I said, PRINCESS!!)
I also made Maddy her own personal cake. Not as cute, but made to destroy!! She seemed to like it! It was a perfect size to dig into. I love how she is showing off her Princess Birthday big perfectly! Gotta love girls!!
Yumm!! She was so funny, at first when she touched the frosting she put her hands out to me to clean them because they were messy. So what did mom do, shove them further in the cake!!
I thought this was such a cute picture of everyone crowded in my kitchen watching the birthday girl eat her cake. What great family and friends we have! I wish you could have all been there!!
All done!
Thats my girl!! Just messy enough to get cute pictures, but not covered from head to toe!!
Of course Kaden couldn't miss out on the cake! He actually did really well. I wasn't sure how he was going to be with all the attention of Maddy, but he did great!! Just wanted some cake! He's not afraid of a little pink!!Grammy and her little Mads!
Happy 1st Birthday lil' mis! You are such a sweetheart with the cutest little personality and determination. You truly are our lil' Princess! We love you!!!
