jaina's matryoshka party!

We did it! It was quite the weekend, but we successfully pulled off our first birthday party. It was a bigger-than-normal deal to me since I'm interested in planning parties for others. You know, for money. I wanted to do a good job and get a lot of killer pictures. Oh, and celebrate the anniversary of my daughter's birthday, of course. ; )

Well, we got LOTS of pictures, and I'm sure I'll be putting a lot of them up here. Enjoy the first round!

Thanks so much to everyone who helped out! We couldn't have done it without you.

I plan to do a breakdown of the decorations, treats, and activities. Stay tuned!
