Birthday Party

It's tradition in our family that on your 5th birthday you get to have a party and invite friends.  So today Sophie had her first birthday party!  She invited her entire pre-K class.  We went to the bounce house so they could all go crazy and not get in trouble for it!

 I had one of the other moms make the cake.  I love the way the layers turned out.
 
The kids were so sweet as they each lined up to present their gift to Sophie.  And afterwards Sophie preferred to play with the gifts instead on going back for more bouncing.   Happy birthday baby girl!

I felt bad taking the easy way out for Sophie's party by having someone else do the cake and going to the bounce house, but I knew there would be no way I could take it all on with ballet and a photo shoot in the morning before the party plus 14 kids to entertain.  I even had Rick do most of the photos during the party.  After all was said and done I'm so glad I did it this way and kept my sanity.  Made for a relaxing afternoon.
