Well it was the morning of our little ones party and I was getting a little excited but there was a lot to do. After feeding the birthday girl breakfast, BrittWhitFun and I started to clean up the house. This include picking all the toys up in the living room and vacuuming all of Tan Man’s fur off the carpet. After doing that we decided to decorate the house. The theme was Minnie Mouse.
After we decorated, Mimi showed up and took BrittWhitFun and K-Dub to Wal-Mart to get the last bit of stuff for the party. I stayed behind to finish cleaning. Once they got back We started cooking and before we knew it the party was coming together.
Maw Maw came with her amazing punch making skills, all the aunts and uncles, close friends, other grandparents, and even great grandparents were coming though the door before we knew it the time came to party.
People treated their selves to cocktail weenies and chips and dip as others sat in the living room watching a slide show I made of K-Dub of her first year alive and listening to some music. All the kids were playing and K-Dub was smiling which made happy.
Then we opened gifts. I have to say that K-Dub really racked up in this department. She got some cute clothes, a table and chair set, some books, MORE LITTLE PEOPLE, and a tricycle. BrittWhitFun and I waited til last to give her our gift which was a stuffed bear. If you touched its right hand it said, “Happy first birthday K-Dub, Mommy and Daddy love you!” She loved it. She also got a play drum from her Uncle Chris and some classic Looney Tunes cartoons that I loved when I was a kid.
Then it was time for cake. K-Dub of course had her own cake that was made by her Aunt Kape. We bought a cake for everyone else to have.
It came time that I was really actually excited about. For K-Dub to smash that cake and get so messy that I could not help but go awwwwww. This is what happened…
So this was not exactly what I had in mind. So after drying her tears she was ready to play but still did not want anything to do with that cake.
After everyone left we spent the rest of the night cleaning up and taking down decorations. K-Dub got a lot of amazing stuff and went to bed without a fight.
The next day all she wanted to do was play with her new toys. She even managed to ride her tricycle! Thanks Nana!
I am still in a state of awe that I have a one year old. It amazes me how fast this past year has gone by and all the crazy lessons I have learned as a new dad. K-Dub makes me want to be a better father and the father she deserves. I can’t wait to see what is in store for BrittWhitFun and I as parents this year. I do know one thing and that is as long as K-Dub is happy, I am happy. Love to see that little girl smile.
