Party girl!

Teag's party was a big hit and so much fun, I still can't believe she's already ONE!! We started at the local gymnastics place for some serious playtime and cake, and then headed back to our house for more food and fun! Our theme was cupcakes and I had so much fun picking out pink and purple everything! Here's my birthday princess on her big day!


Here are some pictures from the party:

I love cupcakes, so much so that Trent and I opted for wedding cupcakes on our big day instead of the traditional cake! Teag's birthday 'cakes' turned out so cute and were delicious!

Teag wasn't too sure about her cake until she got a taste, then she was into it!
Gavin was happy to show Teag how its done!
Here's Teag and bff Maddie, now that they're both on the move it was fun to see them play!
Crazy girl!
Teag and Grandma (my mom) T is doing her 'blah' sound- if you've ever seen baby einstein she's trying to act like the dinosaur puppet!
Here's a pic of us with Teag's physical therapist Julie. She's so sweet and T loves her! We were so glad to see her at the party! She has helped Teag go from not using her legs at all in Oct., to crawling everywhere and trying to walk! Amazing... Here's a pic of the boys, they were having a blast! Gav had so much fun playing with all of his friends!
Teag has become quite the 'ham' for the camera! Here's what we call her 'cheeser' face! Silly girl!
Last week we went to Maddie's 1st birthday and this week her family came to Teag's! Like always, so fun to get together with the Allred's and get the heart sisters together! Katie and I have been talking alot about where we were and what the girls were faced with a year ago and its hard to comprehend how far they've come. I was so busy with the party and all of our friends that day that I didn't really stop and take a moment to let the magnitude of the last year sink in. We have been blessed time and time again in so many ways, and we are so grateful for Teagan's special heart and all that she's taught us this year. Thank you to everyone that came out and shared in Teagan's special day! Thank you to all of you who have prayed for her, helped our family, given comments of support and read our story! Here's to many more years of girlie parties, lessons learned and lots of fun!

Susie, I loved looking through these pictures of her special day! Precious... The "cheese" face is awesome!

For the first time, I recognized your mom in the pic! We take Asher to Kid's First and I know I've seen her around! Next time I see her, I am going to introduce myself. :)

We continue to lift you all up in prayer. It is an honor to have gotten to know you and your family this past year. Thank you for courageously sharing your story when I know at times, it was difficult to write.

Love to all,
Elisa

Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was so great to see the pictures of Teagan's big day. The gym was a neat idea. Wow, sounds like you guys have been working hard at the PT. Teag looks great and sounds like she's right on target. (Maybe she'll be a gymnast someday!)
