Alyssa's First Birthday

May 18th was my niece Alyssa's FIRST birthday. It just so happens to be only 4 days earlier than her mom's birthday...and it just so happened that my sister Kelly's birthday was on a Saturday, the day we celebrated Alyssa's first birthday! Lucky mommy! hahahahaha The things we give up for our kids. And we always heard our parents tell us that we would never appreciate the sacrifices they made for us until we had kids of our own. They were very right!

Alyssa had a princess themed party and dressed the part in her little princess dress. She looked darling in her outfit! Even though she won't remember her birthday party as she gets older, she will have pictures to hold on to!

Auntie Amanda loves you Alyssa! Well we all do but, one day you will realize that I am your favorite;)



  1. She's my granddaughter - and I'm prejudiced - however, she's impossibly cute.

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing Alyssa and Griffin (and their mothers of course) tomorrow!!
