Reed's 1st Birthday Party

I am unbelievably late in posting this, but we've been just a tad busy since the party, with the move into our new house (hopefully getting some pictures up soon!), a trip to Ft. Worth for a TCU board meeting, and adjusting to a new routine at home and daycare.  But Reed's first birthday party was a big success!  We had around 40 friends and family gather in the clubhouse at the Lakelands to enjoy a bagel lunch and cake.  I did a balloon theme, with the colors of blue, silver, and white.  While I would have liked the final look to be a bit more cohesive, given the location (not my house, in a room with green walls and a warm color scheme!) and the 45 minute set-up time, I was pretty happy with the results. And the most important thing is that everyone had a wonderful time!  Here are some of my favorite memories of the day.
