Macy's 1 year Party!! pt. 2 of 5 (PARTY TIME!)

I'm not sure that I can find the words that appropriately describe how extremely grateful I was for the amazing turnout of friends and family.  They braved the snowy roads (many drove quite a distance) and helped us celebrate our special girl's first year in STYLE!!  My heart is filled with warmth as I think back to the fun party.  
I did the tally - Macy had 168 close family & friends!!!
It went off without a hitch and was a genuinely good time.  I'd like to think "had by all".
Here are some (okay a lot of) pics.  Sorry to bombard you, but I want to post them all so that they are "published" in the blog book  :-)
 We tried to include McKenzie in our little family picture...but she was far too busy running around in every direction to hold still for a stinkin' photo-op.  hehe  a well!
 Just about every chair had a butt in it.  crazy!
 Brenda and Lexi (pointing over towards the bounce house.  "Nana, I go there, NOW!")   :-)
 We very much appreciate all the kind & thoughtful gifts.  Not to mention generous donations (big & small) to Macy's favorite club.  Can't wait to hand over $350.00 to The Down Syndrome Alliance of the Midlands.
 Rikki & Nick
 Grandma Harnisch, Ashlynn, Macy, Dakota & Autumn
 Ameri & Sabrina
 What a little dolly  :-)
 Adria & LeAnn
 Elizabeth and sweet Chloe
 Little Eisley (who is just one week younger than Macy) and her mom Anne.  My friend Toninette brought her Down Syndrome Superstars calendar for all the little ones (or mommas) to sing & autograph  :-)  What a fun idea!!
 Lisa & Nikki
hello Mason  :-)
Marie, Ricki & Grandpa Lee
 Chad & Dan
 Donna, Grandma Lee, Brook, Lisa, Emily & Renae deep in conversation.
 John & Mildred.  Mildred made an ADORABLE Macy book.  I will certainly post pics later as it deserves an entire posting all to itself!   :-)
 Isabel checking out the Cake pops
 Aunt Karen, Skyla & Becky

 Hi Grandpa Harnisch!

 Lauren, Ameri, "Crappa" Bryon & Peyton.
 It was pretty interesting to see how all the kids prefer their trail mix.  Each one unique.  Kind of a psychology experiment..."you can tell a lot about a person by what they put (or don't put) in their trail mix...".   hehe
 Emily and the super cute Olivia!
 Thanks again for shooting the party Em.

  1. LOVE all of the pics - but the two right above are my favorite - Heather "feeding" you and then your return favor of a sloppy kiss! Gotta love sisters!
