So if you’re tired of seeing and hearing about Grady I apologize. But really how can you not love those cheeks. Anyway, this post is mainly to give a shout out to the best mom I know (besides our own!) my sister, Karissa. She spent so much time and effort on this birthday party doing most all of it herself, making it as special as she could for her first born. People always say why go all out for a first birthday, but I think it’s the most important milestone to get to for the parents. Babies change so much from the day you bring them home to the day you celebrate their first year of life. It’s a celebration for the parents just as much as for the child. Plus he can always look at the pictures!
After she decided on turtle theme, Karissa hand made all the invitations.
She had the party on the back patio or the Brenham Country Club.
candy table all bought from Big Top Candy Shop on South Congress in Austin.
the Birthday banner she made.
Then it started raining and we had to clean up fast- I think Grady liked the rain though. Grady with Grammi, our Mom.
