As always, Ruby was a gem for her 1st birthday party. As parents, we could not have asked for the day to go any better...well, other than wishing she would have napped sooner rather than later, but it all worked out. We had a wonderful turnout of family and friends, good food, nice conversations, and a whirlwind of pictures. Our house was turned into a butterfly haven with window clings and wall stickers covering the living room, our plates and other partywares had a cute butterfly pattern, and the house was filled with pink, white, and lilac balloons. It was a wonderful end to a marvelous week off spent with my mom and step-dad. The only part that makes me sad is that it is over - both the week with my family AND the first year of Ruby's life. Where did the time go?
And thank you to everyone who helped make the day so special, we are lucky to have each and every one of you in our lives!
