Saturday Carlyle turned 1 year old. We (my sister-in-law and I) had been planning her party for some time now. I thought the day would never get here (I definitely wasn't rushing Carlyle turning one, just wanted to have fun at the party). After finding some really cute matching outfits for all 3 girls, I decided on an Ice Cream Party Theme! Jeremy and his brother were really excited because they LOVE ice cream. Back in July, I asked my sister-in-law, Crystal, if she would want to help me in organizing the party. We were trying to sell our house, pack boxes and get Camden prepared for Kindergarten. I knew I really didn't need anything else on my plate, so she gladly took over. Since that day, I felt no stress or worry about the party. Every detail was taken care of and the party couldn't have been better! I LOVED how everything turned out, epecially all the little details that made it so special! A big thank you to Crystal for all your hard work! What a special birthday for Carlyle! This is one birthday that I will always remember! I hired a photographer for the party, which was one of the best things I could have done. I actually got to enjoy the party while she captured the memories. Jessica Kennedy (wwww.myjkphotos.com
)was amazing and got some great shots of the party decor, birthday girl and all the guests. I am so grateful that our friends and family could join us on such a special day! Every single person in attendance has been a part of Carlyle's first year of life. Thank you for helping us celebrate such a great first year!!
Jessica took over 200 pictures of the party. I won't bore you with all of them, but I am going to show you quite a few! Get ready for picture overload!! To check out ALL of the party pics, go to www.jjchilek.smugmug.com
