Once upon a time...

Once upon a time...
on a cold winter's day, 
a beautiful princess was born named 
Madisyn Grace
The entire kingdom was overcome with joy!
A year later, the King and Queen summoned
the ladies and gents of the land
for a Winter ONEderland Ball
in honor of princess Madisyn's 1st Birthday

It amazes me how quickly time has passed, how can my baby already be ONE?!
I will forever cherish those tiny memories of her...
Becoming a Mother has been an amazing journey and the greatest achievement of my life.

Our daughter's birthday celebration was more that I could have ever asked for, being surrounded by 40 of our closest friends and family. Thank you to everyone who made her day so special! Here are a few pictures from the party, enjoy!

As soon as everyone started to sing her "Happy Birthday"...

She started to cry :(

But once she had cake, everything was all better!!! YUM!

Happy 1st Birthday Princess, Mommy & Daddy love you so much!
May you grow to be strong, independent, kind, caring and give to others. 
We wish for you a lifetime of many happy memories
