Malayna’s First Birthday Party

IMG_2992 Malayna’s first birthday was a “Winter Onederland” theme.  We had lots of fun and Malayna is so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends.

Lets begin with the decorations.  My wonderful and extremely talented aunt Kathy helped me with her banner.  The letters and snowman are used by her amazing cricket machine!

As favors for the kids I made these ornaments with their names on each of them!IMG_2528

I did a monthly timeline from all her pictures in her sticker onesies.  The numbers were all from the cricket machine as well.IMG_2527 IMG_2526


Hot Coco bar….Lauren made this absolutely amazing hot coco.  I am talking the creamiest, yummiest hot coco I have ever had.  I just wished I wasn’t so full and could have fully enjoyed it!
