One Year Older and Wiser too! Happy Birthday... to you!

Daci turned one on Sunday! Am I the only one that can't believe that?!? Well I decided to throw a big party for her. I don't think I have ever worked so hard in my life on something. My brothers thought I was absolutely ridiculous for putting so much effort into something Daci will never remember but I couldn't resist! She's my princess! Carly, my sister-in-law, is an amazing baker and she offered to make her cake. She made a BEAUTIFUL carousel cake. It was so much fun having such an extravagant cake for her. Of course it was gluten free :) I made chicken enchiladas for everyone and we also had spanish rice, a salad and chips and salsa. We had all of my family and all of Rick's family over. It was a fun little group. The boys spent most of the time playing ping pong.

The cake was double layered and covered in pink frosting. Then we found some cute candies to put around the top and middle. We also found cute candycanes with sugar dinosaurs on them at the Peppermint Place that Carly used as the poles. Then we made a canopy to go over the cake. So cute! I made little cupcakes for everyone that weren't gluten free so that everyone could actually enjoy their dessert :)

She got cute little "ruffle bum" shorts from Aunt Carly, four pairs of shoes from Mom and Dad, a very cute hippie outfit and the outfit she is wearing in these pictures from Grandma and Grandpa Pedersen and a Princess Castle full of balls from Papou and Yia Yia. What a spoiled little girl!
