Party on Party People
Turning 1 is a big deal. You get to mark your spot on 'The Door'. As you can see from the line above her head, Scout is a good 2 inches shorter than her big sister. She has the Hessling gene :)
Nick and I took the day off of work to get ready for the party and spend the day with Scout. I took her down the road near Hawthorne Hills for a little photo shoot. We often go for walks here and I thought it would be a great place to take some photos.
These are some of my favorites. It was one of those moments you want to bottle up and remember forever. There she is in the dress her Dad bought her to bring out her eyes. A year old- almost to the minute. An idyllic blue sky with fluffy clouds, a gentle breeze, green grass with a white picket fence.
Nick calls this The Sound of Music shot :)
We had a wonderful party on Saturday. The weather turned out sunny and brisk. A gorgeous early fall day. As per tradition Nick made Scout's cake. A heart shaped cake with a strawberry filling. He even decorated it. It was tasty!!
Look at how happy she is!! Yeah cake!!
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the party. Thank you to everyone who emailed, called, left notes online, sent their love and thought of her on her special day.
