It's A Party

And now I'm finally posting the REST of Kate's birthday party.  You know, the one with the pictures where there are actually PEOPLE in them. :)  Sorry for the delay.  It's been a crazy week.  Kevin was out of town, but Kate and I were on the go the whole time.  So without further delay, here are the rest of the pictures from last Saturday at Kate's 1st birthday party. 

After Kate's breakfast, we laid her back down in her crib and hoped that she would sleep until just before the party.  We knew it would be a very long day for her, so we wanted to have her as rested as we possibly could.  It worked.  She went back to sleep and woke up around 11 as a couple of people were showing up to get everything set up.



Then I got her dressed and ready, and she entertained everyone as we got all of the last minute things taken care of.






After everyone had arrived, we ate lunch.  We ended up having around 20-25 people, including 7 from Kate's birth family.  We're so glad they could come and I think it meant a lot to them to be able to be there and celebrate Kate's 1st birthday with us.  

As we were finishing up, Kate noticed the stack of presents.  She has never really opened presents before.  She was only 4 months old at Christmas, so this was her first real experience with presents.  She only sort of figured it out.  I think she knows what to do with bags.  Wrapped presents are a different story.  Anyway, she had fun and got WAY more than we know what to do with.  









Hmm.  This is turning into a longer post than I thought!  I've still got lots of pictures of Kate eating her first birthday cake.  I'll post that one tomorrow, so check back.  Let's just say she enjoyed it... but we never really doubted that she would!
