Tynlee's 1st Birthday Party

                              HAPPY BIRTHDAY TYNLEE ANNE

We celebrated Tynlee's 1st Birthday party at our church on Saturday February 18th, a day before she actually turned ONE. We spent it with our closest family and friends. We had such a wonderful time and we are so thankful for those who came to share in Tynlee's special day! She loved all the attention and was such a good girl the WHOLE day, despite skipping her afternoon nap ;)

We chose the theme of Tynlee's party to be Bumble Bees. We put individual chalkboards on each table with the gerber daisies that said "BEE joyful, BEE patient, BEE kind, BEE loving, etc." Which we got the idea from the Fruits of the Spirit from Galations 5. We aspire and pray Tynlee will grow up and be a lady who portrays the Fruits of the Spirit. As I've told you before, our number one desire is for our children to know Christ and hopefully fall in love with Him at a young age. We want to raise them in church, raise them knowing God's love for them and His love for His people.

I thought the bumble bee theme was perfect for our little girl's first birthday. Stephen gave a wonderful mini devotional in the beginning telling everyone about this as well as praying for our little girl's life to be a lighthouse for Christ.

We served cupcakes, chocolate and vanilla with delicious buttercream frosting! My sister helped make the cupcakes and she made the frosting! It was AhhMazzeeIng!!! I am so thankful for my mom who spent most of the day Friday and Saturday morning helping me set up and decorate cupcakes. It's so great having a mom who is so involved and so willing to help. I don't know what I would have done without her!!

Tynlee enjoyed opening presents but mostly eating the tissue paper ;) She loved her cake but was definitely acting like a little lady eating it. She would dip her pointer finger in and take a lip. So polite!

It was a beautiful day!

I just can't believe she's ONE!

And the most beautiful ONE year old there ever was :)
