{A special birthday}

Yesterday was Giulianas 1st birthday
I cannot believe she is already one! 
I know i speak for both my husband & I when i say that this year has gone by faster than any year of our lives!
Our sweet girl seems so grown up now. She crawls around super fast, stands & holds onto things as she walks around, she tries to sing, she dances, she points at things all day long saying "uts dis?" she is so curious & smart! 

To celebrate her birthday, we invited all of our friends & family over to our house. All the kids played while the adults just spent time talking. It was nice to see everyone all together.

The theme for her birthday party was a winter wonderland, which was perfect since we have our christmas tree & other decorations up for the holidays. 
I made a giant snowflake out of popsicle sticks & stuck it on our door to greet our guests, My sister & I hung cotton balls on thread from the ceiling to look like snow, & we had a hot chocolate bar with all kinds of toppings & snacks. It looked awesome & was a lot of fun!
