Her 1st birthday coming up soon!

My wife went out today to get some items for our daughters first birthday. Since we believe in the philosophy that your first birthday is a once in a lifetime special occasion, we are going all out with our friends and family on this one. Pretty much everything we purchased had the 1st birthday logo plastered it; everything from plates, napkins, cups, her birthday sippy cup, streamers, tablecloths, balloons, etc. you get the idea. We are going tomorrow to select and order the cake we want and of course any other munchies for our guests. Since we are having our friends and family over, we decided pizza would be a nice neutral selection for an evening meal, not to mention too expensive. The good part about buying all these things for her party is that my grandmother called me this evening to let me know that she wanted to pay for everything. Since this is her first and only great grandchild and also the fact that she wouldnt be able to travel, we were more than happy to accept this gift. Thanks Grandma! The 15th is right around the corner, so much to do, so little time :)
