I got ready at the last minute. I was so hot. My hair was droopy, and I had no time to touch up my make up. Thankfully I didn't look as much like the train wreck that I felt.
After crafts, eating and mingling, we opened gifts. We saved the gifts from us and her grandmas for at the house. I didn't know how she was going to do. One year olds don't really "open" gifts. I didn't want a long drawn out process. People get bored. Since there was only 8 families represented, there were only 8 gifts to open. Not bad.
Next up was the pinata.
Each kid pulls a string until the string attached to the trap door releases the candy.
I was taking pictures and Michael was holding the pinata, so my boss took Olivia over to pull a string.
It was taking longer than expected, so it ended up turning into a free for all.
It was literally the LAST string pulled.
Obviously Olivia doesn't eat candy, so I didn't even have a bag for her. She did get in on the action though.
(Unfortunately, I'm new to the whole DSLR world and the focus is not on the right object.)
It takes a long time to pick up five pounds of candy off the floor!
Next up was cake.
Blowing out the candle
She went right for the bow.. which was gumpaste, so I took the bow and beak off.
She was pretty slow going with it. Not like the when we did her pictures.
I eventually shoved her hands in it a little.
Looking at daddy
I served cake to everyone, people chatted for a bit, and that pretty much summed it up. :)
