Quack quack

First Birthdays are very important. Especially when you are the first child and the first grandchild!

Which is why we flew all the way to Chicago!

The party decorations were all made by Hannah's Aunt Stacy. Yes, she even made the crowns (on her printer)!

Hannah, by the way loves rubber they were everywhere!

On the cakes

and on most of the cupcakes

and there was even one icing down the adult beverages!

It was a huge celebration with seventy guests and my daughters did all of the cooking, which included an array of salads: Shrimp salad, chicken cherry salad, lemon pasta, and pimento cheese, and a selection of dips. Adding to the dessert table, were chocolate truffels, nutella cookies sprinkled with sea salt , homemade carmels and lemon krispie squares.

Oh and the guest of honor sweet Hannah! 



  1. This design is incredible! You obviously know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented
    it. Too cool!
