Party Recap

Our party for Hope's 1st birthday was a special one. We wanted a theme that was a little different, and reflected her personality. Since we call her Sunshine, it seemed a perfect fit to go with a hybrid theme of Little Miss Sunshine & You Are my Sunshine. While the weather may not have cooperated, it didn't matter, because it was nothing but sunshine inside.


Party Highlights

  • Best Moment

    Watching Hope eat her cake. She started out so slow and gentle, and then wound up pulling the cake off its board and trying to shove it all into her mouth at once.

  • Funniest Moment

    Probably also while she was eating her cake.

  • Most Touching Moment

    Watching Hope play with her cousins

    Great work!!! He got some fantastic pictures, and wasn't intrusive at all. In fact, we forgot he was there until after. Nice guy to work with, I highly recommend him. http://www.tpez.com
