you are my sunshine!

 time to party!
we were so excited to celebrate our little sunshine girl with friends and family.
the theme of the party was 'you are my sunshine' but looking
 back now through the decorations no 
one would have probably known that, ha!
i had gathered and made plenty of orange and yellow goods
 to add some details to our backyard bash,
love is in the details at our house.
these pictures are pretty self explanatory, so i think i'll let them do the talking.
it was truly a perfect afternoon.
andrew cardwell jeffrey, it has been a joy to venture down 
this parent road with you for the past year.
we did it!
your girls could not ask for a better daddy.
you could write the book on it for sure.
i love you so much, thank you for making me a mama.
let me interject.
the belcher's came with baby perry!
junie was so honored to see these party guests.
sweet sweet friends.
surprise! surprise!
june loved her cake so so so much.
she didn't hesitate at all digging right in.
love her little sweet tooth.
big thanks to everyone for all of june's goodies, 
sent from near and far.
it is overwhelming for a mama's heart to see 
her baby girl loved so well by so many.
thank you!
and big time shout out to my parents, who like always, 
we couldn't have pulled this shin-dig off without their help.
my mom put in hours upon hours making buntings and cookies
 and then they along with my brother showed up with their minds
 right to work, work, work until the final seconds before the start of the party.
we are forever grateful for the way y'all continue to bless us.
proof of a yummy and successful first birthday!
can't believe this one is in the books.
now it's time to plan the next one!
