The Morning After.


We celebrated our precious Little Lady's 1st birthday yesterday... I've spent the morning beginning to restore order... That process is never as much fun as the frenzied week of getting ready...  LOL!

Sadly, I don't have many photos of the big event... There is a lot of behind-the-scenes-business that goes on when six slabs of ribs, two large smoked chickens and a ten pound brisket evaporate with the crowd passing through the food line.  As you might imagine, getting to take photos doesn't really fit in that business... at least not for me.  I'm sure there are those who are more organized.  ;)


This kind of sweet appreciation makes such labors of love worth every moment...


But, since the frenzy is over... and, I've made a small dent in getting things back to normal (including digging through six bags of post-party trash in hopes of finding a missing silver spoon... no luck), I'm about to take a queue from our precious Little Lady earlier this week and chill awhile.


Now, isn't this a precious little face?  I'll share some of the few photos I was able to get later this week.  I hope everyone is having a safe and wonderful Labor Day weekend!!

Two of my favorite photos from yore is my younger son at his 1st bday, in the high chair. Before pic: untouched chocolate frosted cake w/ blue ice writing & the number 1 candle. After pic: chocolate frosting all over his face.

Darling little girl w/ her pretty pink cake. Now where's the "After" pic?

So you lived the experience rather than photographed it. You have your priorities straight. And I love your orange cup, the pink cake, the sweet nap picture, the deflating decorations, the highchair .... and I can't believe that Little Lady is one already! I was putting her at about four months! She is just beautiful!

She is already one? Yes, they are growing up way too fast. My first one just turned 5 on the 28th. How can that be?? Leila will be three in October. Looks like your little lady had a great birthday. She is so cute!

I love the adorable photo of her with her cake! And....that cup! I have got to have me one made....with Shug and Pops on it.
You are so right, it takes a lot of behind the scene work to make an event wonderful. I know you were thrilled to do so.
Blessing on this Holiday Weekend.
