Party!

It's true - about two weeks ago Maggie turned ONE. In honor of the gal who tends to gravitate toward the ugliest, strangest toys, we had a fun mini Monster party planned. However, the entire weekend ended up being dampened by Maggie getting very, very sick (a severe ear infection we later learned). We still had the party, but it was a little anticlimactic considering the birthday girl was hardly around and there was no festive singing or candle-blowing. :(

The invite.

The birthday girl...completely miserable.

Fortunately, my friend Katie was around to snap a few pics of the party that did happen.

FYI, a garage makes a GREAT place to have a party.

The cake(s).

Mags...and the Grinch, of course.

Dessert table with the Wall of Maggie behind.

What's a birthday with no cake?? I think this was pretty much the only thing Maggie ate all day.

Her face is deceiving. She devoured this cupcake!

The party favors.

I couldn't resist posting this - so rare a) to have ME in a picture, and b) to have a pseudo-Wells family pic!

Already looking forward to next year...things can only go up from here!

Thanks!! My friend Rachel and I made them...it was very fun. They were one of the reasons I was so excited to have a monster party. :)
